Adjutant Wayne Sutherland and Communications Officer Tyrone Crowley accompanied Southwest Central Brigade Commander Bill Myrick to Marion yesterday, where he presented merit awards to two members of Camp #764 there. The meeting was held at the historic Old Marion Depot, the backdrop behind the lectern being a Battle Flag recently retired from our I-65 Flag pole. Camp # 764 acquired this flag through I-65 Flag Chairman Larry Spears by making a $100 donation to the Alabama Division at the last Alabama Division EC meeting, held in Prattville.
The speaker at yesterday's meeting in Marion was H K Edgerton of Asheville, North Carolina, a one-of-a-kind black Confederate activist that you have to see to appreciate. H.K. Edgerton is the President of Southern Heritage 411 Inc. (southernheritage411.com) which he founded to educate people about Southern heritage from the perspective of black folks. The following is an excerpt from the southernheritage411 website:
