Camp 97 Sponsors VA Stone Placement
During the first quarter of 2017, Camp 97 sponsored the placement of a VA stone to honor Watkinsville's own CSA Veteran Capt. Joseph J McRae of Co L of the 3rd Georgia Infantry.
Capt McRae was buried in an unmarked grave in Shockhoe Hill Cemetery in Richmond, VA.
The stone was placed the week of March 20-24, 2017.
Honoring Past Member
Camp 97 sponsored the installation of a SCV Lifetime Member grave marker for past Camp Commander and founding member, Albert Sydney "Syd" Johnson. Syd was an inspiration to the camp. He was a fixture of a gentleman and will be forever missed.
There will be a formal marker dedication in the fall of 2017.
