Dear Mr. Edgerton,

We have recently been made aware of your superb efforts to clarify history. We would be greatly honored to meet you. Do you ever visit Gettysburg?

We currently have a shop near town in which we offer period clothing. We noticed you often wear a shell jacket in your appearances in support of the Southern Cause. It would be our privilage to offer you a custom made shell jacket at no charge as a small token of our appreciation and respect for all your efforts.

Knowing you must receive many emails, we will not extend this note, but we are anxiously looking foreward to your positive answer.

Respectfully,

R. Levy / Eve of Bumperville

Dear Mr. Levy,

God bless you Sir, and thanks for the very kind message. I have not visited Gettysburg since I marched in there after the Colllege allowed a Black man to build a gallows and hang our beloved Flag. I vowed not to return until the Mayor and his peers offered an apology for that action and the Mayor who said to his police force to go out and remove those offending flags (refering to the Southern Cross that the merchants had placed in support of the Confederate Battle Flag) from the parking meters and replace them with Old Glory. I love and respect those of my Southern family who reside and work in Gettysburg and cherish the memory of those who gave up their lives there. However, Gettysburg puts a bad taste in my mouth for the afforementioned reasons.

I would be more than honored to have a shell jacket from you, and would love to meet you. Again may God bless you and your family. Thanks.

Your brother,

HK
