In our June meeting, Compatriot Paul Ridenour, Camp Adjutant for the William H.L. Wells Camp #1588 in Plano, Texas, visited and presented on proper ways to care for, clean and preserve cemetery grave markers and monuments. In our July meeting, Commander Charles Stansell presented on Federal Atrocities in Louisiana during the war.
Our next meeting will be on Monday evening, August 8. Mr. James Neel from Sulphur Springs, Texas, will be speaking on the Confederate High Command. James has many years of research to assist with his presentation. Please be there if at all possible. Our plan for September is for Commander Doug Garnett (Camp Commander for the Bob Lee Camp, Bonham, Texas, and 1st Lt. Commander for the 4th Brigade) to bring a presentation on some prominent firearms used by Confederate forces during the war.
Meetings remain on the second Monday of each month, at Soulman’s BBQ, 691 E. I-30, Rockwall (near SE corner of Ridge Rd. and I-30, next door to Applebee’s). We meet for dinner at 6 pm, and the meeting starts at 7 pm.

Friends of the SCV
If you have friends who would like to support the SCV but do not have Confederate ancestry, they may join as a “Friend of the SCV.” For a minimum initial donation of $40.00, the “Friend” receives a nice certificate suitable for framing, a FOSCV lapel pin and a one-year subscription to the Confederate Veteran magazine from our national organization.
