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.

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.
