Abstract:This thesis examines a local camp of United Confederate Veterans and their role in defining, recording, and preserving their Civil War experiences. By focusing on an individual group of Confederate veterans within a national organization totaling over 1,500 chapters, this study links the local concerns of UCV Camp No. 941, Lebanon (Wilson County), Tennessee with the goals of the regional UCV. At times, various concerns differed at the local and regional level. While the annual reunions brought all camps together in a feeling of solidarity, the individual collective performed its own version of commemorating and remembering its Civil War legacy. Through a close analysis of Camp No. 941's Minutes, this examination of a small Confederate community offers an intimate look into one group of southern veterans and how they elected to conserve their collective memories. Passing down their history—whether displayed in public monuments or privately recorded in the camp's Minutes—required the aging veterans to form alliances with auxiliary groups sympathetic to their local camp. Chapter 329 of the United Daughters of the Confederacy became an integral part in assisting Camp No. 941: in monument upkeep, caring for the indigent veteran, and fundraising. The Wilson County Sons of Confederate Veterans, recruited into Camp No. 941, were expected to carry on the activities of the aging veterans. These two auxiliary groups figured strongly in Camp No. 941's efforts to preserve the collective memories of their old soldiers.
