Confederates Coming to Springfield, Illinois

Tomorrow the Illinois Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) of the Army of the Tennessee will be holding its annual meeting in Springfield, Illinois.   (That's right, Abraham Lincoln's home town.) 

Representatives form the eight SCV camps in the state will be there, including myself from the Camp Douglas camp.  Maybe, I'll get reupped for this year.

Business will be held in the morning, followed by a presentation in the afternoon.

Lunch, as they say, will be served.

Afterwards, I plan to hit some nightlife in the city, including Capital City, Lake Springfield Tap, Curve Inn and the Southside Tap.  All of these places are on the original Route 66, another reason for going to Springfield.
