An Open Letter & Open Report / Zebulon Vance / N.C. Governor Roy Cooper / Brooksville Raid / Oxford, Florida

Dear Ms. Lunelle,

I intend to answer the gentleman Ted's question about North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper's bid to remove the Cenotaph of War Between The States Governor and Confederate Colonel, the Honorable Zebulon Baird Vance, from the Capitol Square in Raleigh and from Statuary Hall in the nation's capitol, and from Pack Square in downtown Asheville. And specifically, what I thought would be the reaction of the Jewish community to this charge.

I would tell him that I could not speak for the Jewish community. However, I would tell him that I hoped it would be a monumental rebuttal because I don't believe that there has been in the annals of written history any man not of the Jewish people that has spoke so favorably of them than Zeb Vance (see The Scattered Nations By Zebulon Vance).

And, I believe with certainty that all the Confederate Jewish soldiers buried in Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, Virginia, would be highly troubled about not only the proposed carnage to Governor Vance's Cenotaph, but that done to President Davis, General Robert E. Lee, General Nathan Bedford Forrest and, not to forget, General Beauregard, General Kirby Smith and all the Cenotaphs to their fallen memorialized fallen comrades to include the colors of the Southern Cross.

And, not to put the response to this sacrilege off on the Jewish people alone. Every man, woman and child of the South should be up in arms about the social and cultural genocide now taking place not only in the South, but spreading quickly across the whole of America by a faction hell bent on destroying what's left of the Republic after Lincoln's debacle, and those who have followed in his footsteps. (see the Democrat Party of the 21st century).

It was a great honor bestowed upon me by the Augusta Jane Evans Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy in allowing me to speak to the many school children who would visit the school day events at the Brooksville Raid re-enactment on Friday, December 18, 2019, in Brooksville, Florida as a part of their contribution to the upcoming Black History Month exercises.

On January 19, 2019, alongside the Honorable Attorney and Commander David McCallister, I would journey to Oxford, Florida to deliver the keynote speech honoring the birthday of the Honorable General Robert E. Lee. Sons of Confederate Veterans Brigade Commander Jerry Peacock would give a rousing presentation on the life of General Lee as well that garnered a rousing ovation from all present.

Mr. McCallister would briefly take center stage and report on the judicial and political efforts of the Save Southern Heritage Florida organization now being played out at the state capitol to garner support for House Bill 97 and Senate Bill 288 in the Florida Legislature to protect all Veteran monuments in the State that the Governor De santis proclaims to be a veterans state, and that has no equal in its love for veterans.

God bless you!

Your brother,

HK
