The Sons of Confederate Veterans James M. Keller Camp #648 in Hot Springs held its annual Christmas party on December 8th. Members of the camp donated new unwrapped toys, which will be distributed to children in the Mountain Pine area through the annual toy drive sponsored by Triple D Realty in Hot Springs Village.
Most of the members of the Camp are descendants of Confederate veterans. They meet the second Thursday of each month at 5:30 PM at Smokin’ In Style BBQ (2278 Albert Pike Rd.) in Hot Springs. The meeting starts at 6:15 and usually includes a speaker on an aspect of the War Between the States.

“The War Between the States” is such a tell. Did these guys also gift the kids with some Confederate flags and brochures touting the positive side of slavery?
