After thirteen great years, we have decided to end the tradition of Firing on Fort Sumter: "The Opening Ball"         We would like to thank all of our past guests, and the many volunteers who contributed their time and talents to make the Ball so successful and enjoyable. We encourage our friends to support similar events, so as to preserve the memory of our Victorian ancestors' social customs and traditions. The gentlemen of the States Rights Gist Camp, Sons of Confederate Veterans, are grateful for having had the opportunity to highlight the dances which helped to alleviate some of the suffering and trials of the War Between the States years.
