There are doubtless few who know that Camp Joseph E. Johnston. No. 34, United
Confederate Veterans, was the first camp ever organized in the South, but such
is a fact. While the camp is designated No. 34, it is rreally entitled to first
place. It came about in this way: The camp was organized August 18, 1891, and on
January 11, 1892, together with thirty-three others at New Orleans, received its
charter, or permit, from General John B. Gordon and the quotation, "The first
shall be last" -was literally verified.
The following were the first officers: A. P. Roberts, Commander: B. M.
Thomas, Vice-commander; W. K. Moore, Vice-commander; J. A. Blanton, Adjutant;
Fred Cappes, Treasurer. There were about thirty-five charter members, among them
were: C. D. McCutchen. John R. Tarver, R. J. McCamy, L. H. Tinsley, J. W.
Barrett, J. F. Denton, A. W. Lynn, Jesse A. Glenn, Judson C. Clements, John W.
Brooker, W. H. Brooker, J. G. McAfee, C. P. Gordon, John Black, Geo. W.
Anderson, James H. Hamilton, Geo. W. Hamilton, H. C. Hamilton, R. P. O'Neill,
Thomas Jolley, Warren R. Davis, T. H. Pitner, W. H. Pruden, B. K. Hix, John
Sansom, and T. H. Pitner.
Captain A. P. Roberts was the initial organizer, and for years was the chief
executive, and was untiring in his efforts to build up the camp.
The selection of the name was a most happy one, and very appropriate, on
account of Dalton having been headquarters, at one time, of General Johnston,
the great strategist of the sixties.
