Mr Edgerton,

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 its 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 ancestors flag in such a disgraceful way.  My Vice Principle, is a former re-eanactor, 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 is

Respectfully Yours in Service,
PVT Christopher Brang
