119 Years of Tradition
The Sons of Confederate Veterans was formed in 1896 and the General William B. Bate Camp 34 here in Gallatin was the 34th Camp nationwide and the 5th in Tennessee. It was affliated with the Donnelson Bivouac of the United Confederate Veterans and we are the inheritors of their legacy and committed to honoring the service of all those who served in the War for Southern Independence.
General William B. Bate
William B. Bate was born in Castalian Springs, Sumner County, Tennessee on October 7, 1826 at Hawthorne Hill.
Our Next meeting is scheduled for February 9, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. at Bledsoe Creek State Park, 400 Zieglers Fort Road, Gallatin Tennessee 37066.
On April 15, 2017 at noon we will be at the Bridal Cottage on Highway 25 in Cottontown for a memorial service for Colonel Don Brickey. Colonel Brickey wanted his ashes spread by cannon so we will do that as part of the memorial. Please join us in honoring our former Commander in this way.
