Confederate veterans to meet

The Private Thomas Caldwell Camp No. 31 Sons of Confederate Veterans will meet at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 12 at McCelvey Center, 212 E. Jefferson St. York.

Christopher Rucker will present a multimedia program discrediting the myth of the Hunley’s fabled “Blue Lantern.”

Rudker lives in Spartanburg and is a member of the General States Rights Gist SCV Camp 1451 in West Springs, Union County. He re-enacts the War Between the States with Ferguson’s Artillery Company, and commands the Revolutionary War cannon crew at Cowpens National Battlefield as a member of the South Carolina Rangers. He and his wife, Jeannie, lead his SCV camp’s annual “Firing on Fort Sumter: The Opening Ball,” a recreation of an 1861 public ball held in Spartanburg each April.

Rucker has had a special interest in the H.L. Hunley submarine since serving with her third crew’s Honor Guard at the Warren Lasch Conservation Center in North Charleston.
