Monuments

Throughout the Texas Division, members are planting markers, preserving old monuments, and erecting new ones, all to fight the frenzied wave of Political Correctness that would rewrite the history books, purge all knowledge of the Recent Unpleasantness, and distort the American character that defines who we are, and defined this nation. Here are some of their efforts.

If your Camp has built a Confederate monument or held a dedication ceremony of one

Recently, the Major Robert M. White Camp #1250, Temple, Texas, erected a monument to Texas hero and Confederate Veteran, Sergeant Jacob Hemphill. A dedication ceremony was held November 12, 2016, at the North Belton Cemetery, in Belton, Texas, where Sergeant Hemphill is buried. Sergeant Hemphill was one of nine recipients of the Texas Gold Star.

The ceremony included the unveiling and dedication of the monument by Camp Commander Terry Tyler and Lieutenant Commander James Bozeman, the dedication of a Confederate Iron Cross by Bell County Chapter 101, United Daughters of the Confederacy, a rose ceremony by the Texas Order of Confederate Rose, a Confederate color guard, a Confederate Honor Guard, and a canteen ceremony.








Confederate Veterans Memorial Monument honoring The Confederate Veterans of Crowley and the surrounding area interred at the Crowley Cemetery. Dedicated Saturday June 11, 2011. We held this dedication for the monument that the camp had worked raising the funds after 3 years. Our guest speaker was Ms. Peggy Fox, Former director of the Confederate Research Center at Hill College Hillsboro, TX. About 100 people in attendance including several of the veteran's decedents. The ceremony included a color guard, the OCR's Black Rose ceremony, a bag piper and ended with a musket fire and the playing of Dixie by Buttermilk Junction, a local old time string band.
