DEPARTMENT ORDER # 7, 2022-2023

28th Encampment of the Department of Tennessee



This is an extension of Department Order #6, which detailed the early notification of the annual Encampment.  Please re-read that Department Order for additional context.

  1. The 28th Department Encampment will be held at Shiloh National Battlefield on the 18th of March 2023.

    As our business meeting rarely takes all day, the intent is to meet, have lunch, and then there are other events in the works.  We will be spending time with the new Auxiliary to the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War as they come into existence.  We are hoping some to take some time to honor the Boys in Blue who fought at Shiloh.  We are planning an informal dinner on Saturday night near the park (target: Hagy’s Catfish Hotel). An agenda will be sent out prior to the Encampment.  The Department Council will meet prior to the Encampment (either the morning of, or virtually beforehand).

  2. Registration for the Encampment is beginning effective this order.

    1. A Registration Form is attached to this Order, and will be posted on the Department website. Registrations should be sent to:

      SUVCW Department
      c/o Gary Wayne Moore, Secretary / Treasurer

    2. A block of rooms has been made available at The Holiday Inn Express, 2106 US Hwy 72W, Corinth, MS 38835 [662.287.1407].  Twenty rooms have been allotted at a rate of $114 per night.  The rate may decrease with market rate over time, yet we are secure that it will not be above this if you get a reservation prior to 17 February 2023.  To take advantage of the rate, tell them you are with the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War.  The discount code is “CIVIL WAR”.  You must call the local number


  1. If there are agenda items from Brothers and the Camps, please begin forwarding them to the Department Secretary / Treasurer (

  2. One purpose of the meeting will be to make revisions to our By-Laws as requested by National. These will be issued as a pre-read in the coming weeks.

  3. David DuBrucq, PDC remains head of a nominating committee for Department Officers for 2023-2024. The remainder of the committee shall be the Camp Commanders (including the future Capt.
