The General William J. Hardee Camp #1397 of the Sons of Confederate Veterans Welcomes You!

We meet at 7:30 PM on the fourth Monday of each month at the former Historic Second Baptist Church of New Hope, Paulding County, Georgia.  This Historic Church is the beautiful White Frame Building at the intersection of the Dallas-Acworth Highway (Highway 381) and Bobo Road in New Hope, Paulding County, Georgia.  This is the same intersection where New Hope Cemetery is.

Our next meeting is Monday, February 25, 2019.  After a short discussion of Camp business, we will be honored to have Mr. Gould Hagler speak on the Battle of First Manassas.

Mr. Hagler is a retired lobbyist and association executive.  For 30 years he represented the Independent Insurance Agents of Georgia at the State Capitol and for much of that time was also the association’s chief executive officer. 

Mr. Hagler is a native of Augusta.  He is a graduate of Wake Forest University (B.A., 1972) and Georgia State University (M.S., 1976). 

Mr. Hagler’s book Georgia’s Confederate Monuments: In Honor of a Fallen Nation was published by Mercer University Press in 2014.  He is a frequent speaker on this and other topics related to the Civil War. 

He reviews books for Civil War News and also writes a monthly column, “This and That,” in which he delves into a wide variety of topics related to the war, ranging from the shortage of consumer goods in the Confederacy to Union officers’ role in the Indian Wars in the post-war West.
