The Semple Camp held another splendid Lee/Jackson banquet Friday night, January 15th and four Dragoons plus three of their ladies attended. Rev. Michael Howell delivered a presentation on a little known individual in the Charleston, SC area who worked at converting black slaves to Christianity before and during The War. He continued the work after they were freed. This was a very informative and motivational program.
The meal, which included rib eye steaks, was excellent and the evening was capped off by drawings for some outstanding door prizes. The Semple Camp’s staff did a superb job of organizing and executing this banquet and everyone enjoyed positive fellowship with Confederate compatriots.
One other note, the flags that were at the Confederate Memorial Monument before governor bentley ordered them removed are the property of the Semple Camp. These were on display at the banquet.
Pictured below are the Dragoons and ladies who attended: Brent Jenks, George Jenks, Melissa Jenks, Sue Spears, Larry Spears, Tyrone Crowley and Carol Crowley.
