The Charles Devens Jr. Camp No. 10
Charles Devens Jr. Camp No. 10, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War

A Brief History of the Camp

The work of organizing the Charles Devens Jr. Camp No. 10 was begun in February and March of 2007, by a handful of members and new members of the Sons of Union Veterans in South Carolina, who felt the time was right to organize the new Camp to preserve the Memory of those Union Veterans from the State of South Carolina, as well as those who are buried within the boundary’s of the State.

The first Organizational Meeting for the Camp was set for Saturday, September 1st, 2007, in Columbia, Richland County, South Carolina, however due to a poor turnout the meeting was not conducted as sufficient numbers of members and prospective members were not present to conduct business. However, instead of dropping the idea of the organization of the Camp, a second effort was started to hold a second Organizational Meeting on Saturday, January 26th, 2008. At that date five members of the proposed camp came together at the South Carolina Confederate Relic Room & Museum in Columbia, Richland County, South Carolina, and elected the Officers of the Camp, and the work of formation was begun. The Camp officers chosen at that time were Commander Kenneth H. Robison II of Columbia, Senior Vice Commander Chadd Vaill of Ridgeville, Secretary-Treasurer David P. Giacomoni of Columbia, and the Camp Council of Ernest Blevins of Villa Rica, Georgia, James W. Lamb of Columbia, and Sylvester Mabie of Summerville.
