As to the Sons Of Confederate Veteran I have met these guys and it was very strange. At the time I was with some friends whom I met on the film set of the film, The Patriot. They were having a western day with cowboys and cowgirls and the kids seem to like it. But there was this guy on a horse ridding around with posters that said, wanted for treason-Abe Lincoln and said a few other things. We all took it as a joke in a way but I looked at them and was thinking…Klan.
Well this guy on the horse had a cap and ball revolver and let it go off right near this one cowboy's face. The cowboy had power burns all over one side of his face. From then on we keep our distance with those folks. And we have not seen them sense then.
This was in Floyd , Va. and not too far from downtown Floyd (not big).
