The Stonewall Brigade Camp would like to invite visitors to our events to explore the lasting impact that Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson had on the local African-American community. To fill out your weekend between events, we are providing visitors the opportunity to walk the streets of Lexington and see historic sites connected with our Black Confederate citizens.
We will not be having a guided tour this year, but you can take the self-guided tour by clicking the link below.
Help us to explore the diversity and divisiveness that plagues modern thought about the Confederacy. It may very well be the Black Confederate's grave's that are the last monuments to the past for the Left to desecrate.

We strongly discourage any conduct which would not be in the spirit of Lee or Jackson, nor Martin Luther King, Jr. who encouraged his followers during his lifetime to leave the Confederate flag and memorials alone to encourage peace, not division.
