An Open Reply To Cameron


Dear Mr. HK Edgerton,

I am Cameron Johnson and I’m thirteen years old. I just wanted to thank you for keeping our Confederate Heritage alive; I’m sure our Confederate Ancestors would be pleased of what you are doing.

Its so amazing that my choir at my church sings the Battle Hymn of the Republic, I play the mandolin at my church and when they sing that song I don’t play a single note at all,and when people ask why I ain’t playing I say ”Its a disgrace to Southern people and my Southern Heritage.”  I would like to meet you sometime and sit and talk. My family and I care/take a cattle Farm in Hendersonville it can be hard sometimes but its good to work.

I hope you have a Merry Christmas and God bless you.

Dear Cameron,

It was my intent to write a year end report today. However, your very kind message brought me not only to tears, but also affirms the commitment that I feel to help right the wrong heaped upon an honorable people. And your courage reminds me of another Cameron; my nephew, the Tennessee Children of the Confederacy President, Cameron Thomas, and so many other young Southern babies who I meet and interact with daily.

I can only applaud you courageous young warriors who like your ancestors make an Honorable Stand  for Dixieland against incredible odds, (hostile judiciary, hostile public school system, scared Southerners, Southerners like Mimi Elrod, the Mayor of Lexington, Virginia who join the ranks of Judas and Benedict Arnold ) and like Ghandi of India, no less noble a cause you defend. May God bless you, and I wish you, your family, and friends a Merry Christmas.

Your brother,
