Southern Heritage <br>News and Views: ANNUAL ROBERT E. LEE/STONEWALL JACKSON EVENT SET FOR JAN. 23rd

Saturday, December 26, 2009


Knoxville -- The Longstreet/Zollicoffer Camp of the Sons of Confederate Veterans will host their 17th annual celebration of the birthdays of Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson at the Foundry Restaurant located at the north end of World’s Fair Park in downtown Knoxville on Saturday January 23. The keynote address will be give by Reverend John Weaver. His topic will be – “Who Were the Rebels?”

Pastor John Weaver is a native of Georgia, and a graduate of Bob Jones University. He has been in Christian ministry for over 44 years and has helped plant several churches and Christian schools around the country. Pastor Weaver travels across America preaching and lecturing in churches, colleges and conferences. He has also authored three books: “The Christian and Civil Government,” The Sovereignty of God and Civil Government,” and “The Biblical Truth Concerning God’s Righteous Vengeance.” He has taught Southern history and American history in numerous conferences, youth camps and churches. Pastor Weaver served two terms as SCV Chaplain-in-Chief, and is a member of the Manse Jolly Camp #6, of Piedmont, SC. His message for the Lee-Jackson Supper, “Who Were the Rebels?” identifies the true rebels, and demonstrates from Northern sources that the North was indeed in rebellion to the Constitution and wanted to destroy the union of the States. The South still glories in the fact that she stood for principle, right, liberty, freedom and the Constitutional Republic as it was given to us by our founding fathers.
Camp 87 is pleased and honored to have Reverend Weaver as our featured speaker this year.

Each year we gather to honor the births of Robert E. Lee and Thomas Jonathan Jackson who were born Jan. 19, 1807 and Jan. 21, 1824 respectively. In Tennessee, Lee’s birthday is an official State Day of Special Observance.

The Lee/Jackson dinner, as always, is open to and the public is welcomed.

”This is always a dignified, family friendly event with a dress code,” Jones said. Men are encouraged to wear jackets and ties. Business or period attire are also acceptable. The dinner will open with a brief drill and flag presentation ceremony by uniformed Confederate re-enactors.

Doors open at 6 p.m. for a social hour. The buffet-style dinner is at 7 p.m. Cost is $30 per adult, $15 per child 12 and under. Several door prizes will be awarded. Advance reservations with full payment are required, and must be received no later than January 21 as the Seating is limited.
