Dear Friends,

Have you read my first post on Confederate History Month in April? http://ConfederateHeritageMonth.com

Let's go after city, county and state proclamations in February. In March let's write the news media, TV, Radio and Newspapers, and ask them what they are planning for April---Confederate History Month. I will offer a form letter to the media later.

We have created 20 stories that could be used on TV, Radio and Newspapers. See list below, please copy and use where ever they will be helpful.
