Commander Hayes' Letter to Lyndon Resident

Dear Sir:
First of all, on behalf of all the members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans we would like to welcome you to the Louisville area if you are moving here from another city.  We deeply regret that some of your neighbors seem to be upset by your traditional display of the Confederate Battle Flag.  We are always concerned when we see people who only think of the battle flag as a symbol of hate or racism.  The Sons of Confederate Veterans stand ready to assist any citizens who experience a prejudicial encounter because of their Southern heritage and the right to express that heritage in any form that is protected by the first amendment to the Constitution of the United States.
One of the major goals of our organization is to educate the public as to the causes of the secession of the Southern States and the resultant conflict known as the War Between the States, or as it is commonly misnamed, the Civil War.
If we can be of any assistance to you in this matter please contact us.  If you are a descendant of a Confederate soldier we would welcome you to join our local chapter of the Sons of Confederate Veterans.  I have enclosed a brochure with membership information.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.  Please visit our camp website at:
William M. Hayes
Commander, John Hunt Morgan Camp 1342
