My name is Christopher Brang. I am a member of the 22nd North Carolina Inf. Co. A and the 18th Virginia Calvary Co. G. I am experiencing trouble at my high school with the Confederate flags. It is not uncommon for me to wear t shirts with the flags of the Confederacy on them, and catch some flack for it. I had two stickers tapped on my computer with the flags on them. One said "Preserving your heritage is not a hate crime" and the other said "There’s a good reason it’s called the battle flag, and them trouble makers are a-fixing’ to find out why". I am not a racist man, nor do I support any one who uses our ancestor’s flag in such a disgraceful way. My Vice Principle, is a former re-enactor, and is supporting me because he knows that I have come from a long line of southern families, and that I do not use it in a racist, red neck way. We are going in front of the school board at the end of the year to see if we can get rules changed, but I have my doubts that we will have much luck with these yankees. I have seen you at work before, and you come highly recommended to me. If you could be of any assistance, it would be greatly appreciated. I live in a little town called Mercersburg Pennsylvania; it is located in the south central part of the state. If you wish to contact me, my email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Respectfully Yours in Service,
PVT Christopher Brang
