This chapter focuses on the group of white residents committed to the eventual reopening of the Prince Edward public schools who emerged from a semi-secret meeting at former school board chairman Maurice Large's cabin. They found a “patrol force” of PESF board members waiting outside to identify them. A car parked on a nearby public road trained its headlights upon all the vehicles exiting from Large's driveway, and attendee Lester Andrews spotted one of his friends writing down names. A story circulated that C. W. “Rat” Glenn, one of the most feared men in the county, had forced several drivers off the road in an effort to get their license plate numbers. Other attendees later claimed that PESF officials stopped and questioned them as they drove up to their homes.
