WELCOME TO THE MAJOR WILLIAM FOOTMAN CAMP WEBSITE!!!

The Major William Footman Camp is located in Fort Myers, Florida, part of the 15th Brigade of the Florida Division, which encompasses the 5 Southwest Florida counties of Lee, Collier, Hendry, Glades, and Charlotte. The camp was founded in May of 2000 and was chartered in the summer of that year in Labelle, Florida.

The Major Footman Camp meets on the fourth Saturday every month at the Smoke' N Pit BBQ Restaurant, located at 1641 N Tamiami Trail, North Ft Myers. Optional lunch begins at 11am -the Camp program begins at 12 noon.

Visitors, non-members, wives, and children are both welcomed and encouraged to attend our meetings.  We take pride in our monthly historical presentations and discussions, and often have noted historians as our guest speakers.

Once a year our camp holds a special holiday gathering at the Hendry house in Labelle.

(CAMP MEMBERS AT THE HOLIDAY GATHERING HELD YEARLY AT THE CAPT HENDRY HOUSE, LABELLE, FLORIDA)

The Camp is named in honor of Major William Footman who led Confederate Cow Cavalry in the battle of Ft Myers in February of 1865.

Please contact any of our camp officers if you would like to join our camp, or would like more information about the Sons of Confederate Veterans.

Deo Vindice,

"To you, Sons of Confederate Veterans, we submit the vindication of the cause for which we fought; to your strength will be given the defense of the Confederate soldier's good name, the guardianship of his history, the emulation of his virtues, the perpetuation of those principles he loved and which made him glorious and which you also cherish. Remember it is your duty to see that the true history of the South is presented to future generations."
