Helena gets new Sons of Confederate Veterans Camp

Updated Apr. 1, 2013

Helena now has a Sons of Confederate Veterans Camp. The new camp is The Seven-General Camp and it meets every second Monday at the American Legion Hut. Shown is the signing of the camp charter in the Governor’s Reception Room in the Arkansas State Capitol Saturday March 30. Pictured left to right: Johnny McKenzie, Danny Honnoll, Ron Kelley and Brad Hartsfield. Honnoll is the Arkansas Division SCV chief of staff. The local SCV camp will act as a historical auxillary for the museums and historical sites in and around Helena. It is a heritage and historical-based group that is non-political and non-sectarian. It is fitting that Helena hosts a new SCV camp because of the vast Confederate heritage and history in the area. Helena is home to seven Confederate generals.
