Dibrell Day in Sparta, Tennessee
On Saturday July 20, 2002 the Dillard-Judd Camp 1828
of Cookeville, Tennessee hosted the first annual Gen. George G. Dibrell
day in Sparta, Tennessee. The event which was held in the City of
Sparta Amphitheater attracted 150 well wishers and attendees. We also
had in our group a small contingent of our African-American brothers
that was there to "observe".
During the entertainment portion of the day, at the amphitheater, our Ken Tyler 2nd Lt. Commander of the Camp spoke on our mission along with Ed Butler, Tennessee Division Heritage Chairman. Mr. Butler asked for questions from the crowd, which there were a couple to which he responded eloquently, thus quelling any further questions. Events such as this allow the SCV to branch out into areas that are not currently represented. The actual memorial had 100 attendees, with descendants of the General speaking and in attendance. We thank the Hamby Camp from Crossville for their assistance along with the Meyers-Zollicoffer Camp of Overton County.
Hats off to all that participated, attended and particularly to Ken Tyler, of the Dillard-Judd Camp, who organized this event.
With the successful conclusion of this event we have
in hand 4 new members for a White County Camp and several excellent
prospects. This will now be the second camp that the Dillard-Judd
Camp has initiated in the Upper Cumberland area.
