A Civil War in the SCV?

From the September 10th Tampa (Fl) Tribune "Confederate group splits, says it is not a civil war" by Keith Morelli.

The Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) has split into two groups.  The General Jubal A. Early Camp No. 556, chartered nine years ago, once had over 100 members.  Earlier this year, a dozen broke from it and formed the Judah P. Benjamin Camp No. 2210.

The given story was that the two groups split because of a difference in philosophy.

The Early Camp is best-known for flying the huge Confederate flag over US-92, which can easily be seen from I-4 and I-75.

Always good to have more camps, but, splitting in the face of this constant attack on our heritage is not in the SCV's best interest.
