* The Taylor Camp was chartered in 1971. But as late as 1994 only had 25 members. Now we stand at about 170 members.The Taylor camp is the largest in the Louisiana Division, and the oldest existing Camp in North Louisiana. But more than that, it is very active in carrying out the Charge of S.D. Lee. The Taylor Camp has been in the front line of all Heritage fights in their area and indeed the state. We are out in the public almost every weekend promoting our heritage, whether in parades, doing living histories or having booths at local festivals. The Taylor Camp has had a booth every year for the entire two weeks at the La State Fair for four years in a row. It is estimated that about seven thousand people have contact with us there every year.
* In May of 1998 the Taylor camp served as host to the La Division Reunion, at which we secured the hotel's flagpole and flew a 5X8 3rd National for the duration right next to I-20. We also hosted the Division Reunion in 2002 & 2007
