Company A (The Shelby Grays) 4th Tennessee Infantry was formed in Shelby County and fought with the Army of Tennessee 1861-1865



We invite and welcome you to The Shelby Grays Camp 1852 that was established in Arlington, Tennessee. Our Camp meets on the third Tuesday of each month at the Baker Community Center at 7942 Church Street in Millington, Tennessee. We have fellowship starting at 6:45 P.M. and our business meeting at 7:00 P.M. is always open to the public. Ladies are always welcome to attend our meetings in addition to the meetings of the ladies auxiliary.

Our Camp was chartered on April 6, 1999, 137 years from the date of the battle of Shiloh. We serve Shelby County as a patriotic, educational, nonpolitical, historical society preserving the true history and heritage of the Confederate Cause during the “War Between The States.” Its primary purpose is the preservation of the past and we are the guardians of the heritage that our ancestors have given us. Their contribution to history stands without question as their heroic struggle for independence. These brave men are the last true patriots of our nation’s history and as we meet each month we try to make our efforts to honor them the best that we possibly can.
