The Sons of Confederate Veterans plan to hold a $100-per-person Secession Ball on Dec. 20 in Gaillard Municipal Auditorium. It will feature a play highlighting key moments from the signing of South Carolina’s Ordinance of Secession 150 years ago, an act that severed the state’s ties to the Union and put the nation on the path to the Civil War.
Jeff Antley, who is organizing the event, said the Secession Ball honors the men who stood up for their rights.
“To say that we are commemorating and celebrating the signers of the ordinance and the act of South Carolina going that route is an accurate statement,” Antley said. “The secession movement in South Carolina was a demonstration of freedom.”
