In 1963, everyone begged William Lewis Moore not to go to Mississippi. His family worried about where he would sleep & eat. He reminded them that he had been a Marine & that Marines could handle anything. He insisted on hand-delivering a letter to the governor, urging the staunch segregationist to change.
