In our May meeting, Larry Wilhoite (Commander, O.M. Roberts Camp #178, Waxahachie, Texas) presented “Texans and Their Flags”, along with his very knowledgeable wife Pam. They reproduce historic Confederate flags, many of them being flags which may be fairly obscure and unknown by many folks today. The presentation was very educational and very well done.
In June Commander Jack Dyess of the Col. W. H. Griffin SCV Camp 2235 will bring a somber presentation comparing the situation and conditions of the Federal POW Camp Douglas (Chicago) with the Confederate POW camp at Andersonville, Georgia.
For July, we will have Carolyn Francisco from the Rockwall County Historical Foundation presenting “Rockwall County: Believe It or Not”.
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.
