Our camp is named for the Colonel of the 10th Tennessee Volunteer Infantry Regiment, also known as the "Rebel Sons of Erin". This regiment was made up primarily of men of Irish birth and Irish ancestry. Col. McGavock was killed on May 12, 1863 while leading his men in the Battle of Raymond, Mississippi. Col. McGavock's remains are buried in Mount Olivet cemetery located in Nashville Tennessee.
Our camp meets at 6:30 pm, on the first Tuesday of each month except January in the board room of the visitors center at the Hermitage, home of Andrew Jackson.
