Regarding Confederate Monuments

Confederate Soldiers, Sailors, and Marines that
fought in the Civil War were made U.S. Veterans by an Act of Congress in 1957, U.S. Public Law 85-425.  Sec 410, Approved 5/23/1958.  

This made all Confederate Veterans Equal to U.S. Veterans.  Additionally, under U.S. Public Law 810, Approved by the 17th Congress on 2/26/1929, the War Department was directed to erect headstones and recognize Confederate grave sites as U.S. war grave sites.  

The Last Confederate Veteran died in 1958.  So, in essence, when you remove a Confederate Statue, Monument or Headstone, you are in fact removing a Statue, Monument or Headstone of a U.S. VETERAN!



Upcoming Events

Here are Some of the Upcoming Events that our camp will be participating in. Feel free to come out and join us or stop by one of our monthly meetings.

February 23-25, 2018
The Battle of Aiken - Civil War Reenactment
Come join us and see history come alive with cannons, cavalry horses and living history experts.  For three days, re-enactors eat, sleep, live and fight in a painfully recreated version of the world in 1865. This War Between the States event has grown from a few hundred men with muskets to a full-blown Civil War festival. In addition to battle reenactments, there are authentic 19th-century military encampments, living history presentations, reproductions of medical facilities, an engineer and signal service, and civilian portrayals. Food vendors will be available.

Cost: Adults: $12; Ages 6 to 12: $6;
Under age 5: Free

Location
1210 Powell Pond Rd.
Aiken, SC  29801
