In our August meeting, Monday Aug. 12, we will welcome musician Jed Marum, who will be playing and singing some period songs for us. I met Jed in Vicksburg, and I have heard some of his music. I am sure you will not want to miss this meeting if you can possibly make it. I am also going to issue a special invite to SCV members from other camps to see if we can pack out our meeting room for this presentation. To preview Jed’s music, just look up his name on YouTube and you will find it. Please, make every effort to be with us, and be sure to consider bringing a few dollars with you. Jed will be bringing some of his cd’s for purchase. I have also invited some of the members of the Johnson Middleton Tate Camp in Arlington to try to come with some of their SCV hats to sell to those interested. By way of reminder, we meet at Soulman’s BBQ, Ridge Road and I-30. Dinner is at 6 pm, meeting at 7 pm.
New Camp Flag Proposal
At our next meeting I will be proposing that we have made for us a camp flag very similar to the one pictured to the left, which is modeled after the presumed flag of the 6th Texas Cavalry, of which Company B was the Rockwall Cavalry.
