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 7:00 PM (Note the Changed Time) on Monday, April 22, 2024, at the former Historic Second Baptist Church of New Hope. 


After a short discussion of Camp business we will recognize our special guest speaker, Dr. Brian Steel Wills, Professor of History and Director of the Center for the study of the Civil War, at Kennesaw State University, and also author of many books. Brian will be retiring this July, and we will be presenting him with a special plaque in recognition of all he has done for our Camp over the years. This will be followed by Dr. Wills talk.


After Dr. Wills talk, weather permitting we will go outside for a cannon and gun salute at our Battle of New Hope Church Monument, in honor of our ancestors and Confederate Memorial Day, which is observed in Georgia on April 26th each year. Members who dress out in uniform are ask and welcome to join in the gun salute.
