The 2014 officers are Dr. James Armitage, Commander; Mack Pickett, First Lt. Commander; Matthew Armitage, 2nd Lt. Commander; and James Shelton, Adjutant.
The namesake of the camp was one of three Confederate martyrs brutally murdered by Union Army occupation forces in Lincoln County in 1864. A marker describing the murder of the three men in 1864 is located next to the Confederate soldier monument on the courthouse grounds.
