Morgan Camp August Meeting

Compatriots and Friends:

The monthly meeting of the John Hunt Morgan Camp will be on Saturday, August 11th, at 11:00 AM at the Confederate section in Cave Hill Cemetery.

We have decided to move the meeting to this date so we can honor Nathaniel Ralls, an Eagle Scout candidate who has completed his Eagle project of straightening and aligning some 60 stones in the Confederate Section. The camp plans on honoring him with a special certificate on that date. Coincidental with our meeting the 5th Ky Inf and 2nd Ky Inf, CSA reenacting groups will be at Cave Hill to provide a color guard and firing squad as they rededicate that section of the cemetery. Cave Hill is printing the program for the event. There should be media present too. In 1984 Nathaniel's father completed a similar project for his path to Eagle Scout. Nathaniel's grandfather, Bill Ralls, is a reenactor in the 5th Ky Inf. This should be a good event. I hope all of you can make it to Cave Hill on Sat, Aug 11th.

A second reminder, Danny Davis will host the "Commander's Luncheon," an informal gathering of compatriots and friends at noon on Friday August 10th, at O'Charley's Restaurant in the Springs shopping center located at the corner of Breckenridge Lane and Dutchmans Lane. We hope to see you there too.

  1. To get to the Confederate Section (Section O):

    Enter the main gate at Baxter Ave and Broadway. Drive down the main road and continue to bear left until you find the Federal Section at the top of the hill. The Confederate Section will be just over the hill, adjacent to the Federal Section, but you should see the flag pole.
