The John R. Massey Camp #152, Sons of Confederate Veterans, will meet on Thursday, Feb. 13, in the Fayetteville Municipal Building Auditorium.

Camp Commander Dr. James Armitage will call the meeting to order at 7 p.m.

A special program on the events leading up to the Battle of Gettysburg and the aftermath of the battle will be presented.

Camp members will be invited to tell of their ancestor’s part in that great battle. There will also be a display of artifacts from the War Between the States for viewing and discussion. The regular camp business meeting will follow the program.

The plans for the formal dedication of the new Civil War Trails marker recently installed near the Confederate Monument at the courthouse will be discussed.

The meeting and program are free and open to anyone interested in southern history.

The Sons of Confederate Veterans is an international heritage organization for men who have an ancestor that served honorably in the Confederate Army or Navy and is not affiliated with any other organization.
