Daily Reports On H.K. Edgerton's March Across Virginia

(Pictures below)

On October 14, 2006. the 3rd anniversary of the historic March Across Dixie, aided and sponsored in part by the owners of the Dixie OutFitters store in Madison Heights, Virginia, Dennis and Brenda Beeton ; Terry Lee and I would began another March seeking justice for our Southland that continues to suffer from the Reconstruction agenda of social, and cultural genocide. Armed with the letter that I not only wrote to President George W. Bush, but also put into his hands at a Town Hall meeting in the Capitol of North Caroilna, we now make our way North to the Nations Capitol in hopes that this President who I believe to be the most courageous, honorable and Christian President to enter the White house since George Washington, and further the only one in my estimation who carries the convictions and courage to right the terrible wrong placed upon the Judaeo / Christian White folks of our Southland , our flag symbols, and historical motivations that led our people to secceed from the union which they helped forge.

Before we began our journey up highway 29 North; our first stop would be to attend on this Saturday morning at the invitation of the local Sons of Confederate Veterans Camp # 1733 and the ladies of the United Daughters of the Confederacy Chapter 11 of Appomattox, the historic Appomatox Railroad Festival ; we would be received with a great ovation of love and bravado by the thousands gathered as our Southern float, Terry Lee with his African drums decorated with thirteen Confederate Flags , and I carrying my battle flag passed them by. To witness the love we received by both Red, Yellow, Black and White folk at this gathering surely puts holes in the written rhetoric of those who hate all things Southern. Shortly after the end of the parade, we would gather at DixieOutFitters , say goodbye to the many well wishers who had gathered, and along with Julie Fulton of DixieOutFitters of Odum, Georgia, we began the first day of our journey. On this day I would carry the Tennessee Republic Flag which flew over Bethesda Church in Morristown; in honor of all my babies of Maryville, Blount County and the whole of Tennessee who have made a most honorable stand in Dixie Land for our people. Ten miles we would march on this day; just two miles from the out skirts of the City of Amherst, Virginia which has dishonored itself by removing the Southern Cross from it's historical position of the cities seal.

Day two, October 15, 2006 , accompanied by Dennis Beeton of Dixie OutFitters, Terry Lee and I would make our way into Amherst. We would hold a short vigil at the Episcopalian Church store, in protest of the shamless action of the Episcopalian Church in Richmond that denied a memorial service for two brothers of the Confederate Army buried on their grounds. Along with Dupont, the Boys Scout Council of Richmond that removed the Honorable General Marse Lee from their insignia, the Virginia Senate who continues to not allow Confederate History Month in the state, we moved forward to Washington with heavy hearts. There is no man who ever walked God's earth, who more epitomizes honor, integrity,and courage than Marse Lee. He was a great Episcopalian as well.
