The James City Cavalry, SCV Camp 2095, believes the honoring of our Confederate ancestors is an essential part of maintaining and perpetuating the “Confederate soldier’s good name and the guardianship of his history” as stipulated in General Stephen D. Lee’s “Charge” to the Sons of Confederate Veterans.

At each monthly meeting we read a brief history of one Confederate soldier, light a candle and offer a prayer in his remembrance.

The soldier’s honored in 2009:
