SCV CAMP 72 January 22 2013 MEETING
Maj. Gen. Benjamin F. Cheatham Camp 72 will have their first dinner meeting for 2013 at 6:00 P.M., Tuesday, January 22 at the Oak Restaurant in Manchester. At 7:00 P.M. Commander Williams will open the meeting.
For our program this month, we will have Mike Corley from the Smithville camp. He will be speaking on the efforts to erect a monument to “Pomp” Kersey on Short Mountain. “Pomp” Kersey was a 13 year old Confederate who led a small contingent of teenage “bushwhackers” who defended the area around Short Mountain. He was killed by Union troops on 24 July 1864. For the most up to date info, please check our web site at http://www.tennessee-scv.org/camp72/. We usually have excellent speakers to present the programs.
Meetings are open to the general public and all War Between the States buffs have a special invitation for the program.
Membership in the Sons of Confederate Veterans is open to all males 12 years of age and above who had an ancestor that served honorably in the Confederate Armed Forces or the Confederate Congress and can prove kinship either lineal or collaterally. Help is available to anyone interested in finding and proving kinship.
