    Hi, Mr. Deaton. This is Caden Loyd writing. I’m honored and speechless that you would recognize me. You are an amazing historian and I appreciate the work you do. You have motivated me to inform the people around me. I live in an area where some people still cling on to the “Lost Cause” ideology. I’m so thankful that people like you attempt to change that. I hope to change their minds, preserve history, and leave my mark on the world. Thanks for all you do. Keep it up!
