“We thoroughly enjoyed having David at our joint SCV camp meeting. I think he enjoyed seeing the old Piedmont Hotel in Gainesville that General Longstreet once operated.

David is a good public speaker. He told a compelling story and held our attention. His ancestor, James Brethed, had quite the life. David made some bold statements which he backed up with solid facts.

I hope that his speaking tour continues to go well. We are looking forward to seeing him again at the SCV Reunion in Charleston this summer.”

Warmest regards,

Cliff Roberts, Commander of the Hiram Parks Bell Camp #1642
