Congratulations to All! I bet we are the only camp in Missouri, perhaps nationally that has 3 Chaplains, 3 Aid-de-Camps, 3 Commanders, a Quartermaster and a Surgeon. The Coffee Camp, is starting to look more like an army!- webmaster
The recent dedication of the General JO Shelby monument in Waverly, Missouri has generated much publicity and discussion on internet websites and “blogs”.
With this in mind I thought it would be nice to travel back in time to Osceola, Missouri November 1, 2003 when members of the Colonel John T. Coffee Camp #1934 dedicated the Missouri Brigade Monument on a cold and misty day on a bluff that overlooks the confluence of the Sauk and Osage rivers.
