LINCOLNTON, N.C. - The General Robert F. Hoke /Colonel William J. Hoke Camp 1616 Sons of Confederate Veterans held their annual Confederate Memorial Day ceremony on the west side of the courthouse in Lincolnton Sunday night, May 10.

The event is held each year to remember and honor those brave men who answered the call of their beloved Tar Heel state in the War of the Northern Aggression.

The camp members held a processional to the Confederate Memorial on the courthouse lawn at 7 p.m. as visitors lined the way showing their appreciation for the day of remembrance for their Confederate kin. Southern Confederate Veterans from other camps were also in attendance dressed in attire from that era.

John Marion Hovis was carrying a Confederate battle flag made by Ben and Beth Tart that hung inside the old North Carolina State Capitol building in Raleigh as part of a historical exhibit for the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War until 2013 when the exhibit closed early.

For more information on the Sons of Confederate Veterans call Tim Willis at (704) 609-5434.
