Greetings Friends and Compatriots

It appears that Spring Has finally arrived. The first of May signals the beginning of the most important season of activities and events for the Black Horse Camp. Our mission is to preserve the history and legacy of the Confederate soldier so that future generations can understand the motives that animated the Southern Cause. To further that mission, we have scheduled the following activities for May and June:

Tuesday, May 1, 2018    Our regular monthly meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 1st at 7:00 PM at the Warrenton Visitor's Center. I hope that this will be the beginning of a new set of expectations for the format of these "regular meetings". Our intention is to minimize the business aspect of these meetings by moving most of the outline business to regularly scheduled meetings of the Executive Committee (elected officers). Instead the general membership meetings will provide education and fellowship. To that end, we have scheduled a speaker for this meeting. We are honored to have Compatriot Fred Chiesa, the newly elected Lieutenant Commander of the Virginia Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans as our guest and speaker. He will be presenting a lecture on the history of The Army of Northern Virginia, with plenty of time for questions and answers.

Friday, May 4, 2018        Next Friday, is the first of six 1st Friday events to be held on Main Street in Warrenton this Spring and Summer. We have accepted the invitation of "Experience Old Town  Warrenton" to participate again this year. This is an excellent opportunity to fly the flag, educate the citizenry, and recruit new members. I will provide details at the Camp Meeting and in emails this week as information becomes available. As usual, your participation makes these events happen.

Friday, May 18, 2018      We hope to present the Hunley Award to deserving Fauquier County ROTC Cadets at Liberty High School on this evening. Details are pending.

Saturday, May 19, 2018  Warrenton Spring Festival. The Camp will again participate in this large all-day festival with the same goals as 1st Fridays, only with a potential of reaching thousands of citizens from near and far.

Sunday May 27, 2018    This is the big one. We will be co-hosting, with The United Daughters of the Confederacy, Black Horse Chapter No. 9, the Confederate Memorial Day Service at the Warrenton Cemetery. We will be finalizing plans at the meeting Tuesday evening and throughout the month. Again, your prticipation makes this happen.

Saturday June 9, 2018    Brandy Station Tribute Day and Commemoration of the 155th Anniversary of the Battle of Brandy Station.  Details to follow.    

If your schedule allows, please try to attend the meeting on Tuesday May 1. There is a lot of information to share, plus an interesting and informative program.
