The Fairview Observer - April
Library offers Civil War display in April
April has typically been designated as Confederate
or Civil War History Month. To honor that designation, the members
of Captain Ed Baxter Camp 2034 Sons of Confederate Veterans in Fairview
have a special treat in store for Fairview library visitors.
A unique, must-see display offering an up-close look at Civil War
artifacts is now on exhibit at the Fairview Public Library, 2240
The display is open for public viewing and will remain on display
throughout the month of April.
All relics in the display were actually dug by Dennis and Irene
Lampley of Fairview from various battlefields and campgrounds in
The exhibit includes two volumes of Confederate military records
and pension applications of veterans and their widows from the Fairview
area. The records have been donated to the library on behalf of
SCV Camp 2034 and Old Hickory Chapter 747 United Daughters of the
Confederacy in Dickson.
The donation will help preserve Fairviews history, giving
all residents, current and future, the opportunity to witness part
of Fairview history.
