Memphis Heritage Alert
I wrote to you the other day about the VMFA situation, but as you know, there are great problems in Memphis
-- specifically, renaming of parks as a means of demeaning our Confederate heroes. Our men there have a legal defense fund, also. Their information follows my message.
Note: Alabama Division checked in quickly w/ a donation on the VMFA issue.
PLEASE CONSIDER BOTH OF THESE BATTLES. THIS IS AS SIMPLE AS IT GETS
-- 1) PROTECTING THE PRESERVATION OF OUR ANCESTORS' NAMES THROUGH PRESERVING MONUMENTS and
2) PROTECTING OUR ABILITY TO PROCLAIM THEIR HISTORY IN PUBLIC.
