1 THE TELEGRAPH KEY THE OFFICIAL DISPATCH FOR THE MAJOR THOMAS J. KEY CAMP #1920 KANSAS DIVISION, SCV JOHNSON COUNTY, KANSAS VOL. 11, No. 11 NOVEMBER 2010 DECEMBER CAMP MEETING TH 114 Regular Meeting All compatriots are reminded that the next regular meeting of the Major Thomas J. Key Camp #1920 will be on Thursday nd December 2, We will be meeting at Zarda s Barbecue th located on the southwest corner of 87 Street and Quivira in Lenexa, Kansas. We will meet between 6:15 and 6:30 p.m. for dinner and start the official meeting at 7:00. For our meeting we have a particularly interesting speaker on a topic that all of us will find useful. The United States Archives in Washington DC, actually has a satellite office here in Kansas City. They were located on Banister Road and about two years ago moved to a new location next to Union Station. Our speaker, Mr. Jake Ersland, is an archivist and will talk to us about exhibits at the Archives, resources available, Civil War records stored here and other records available for genealogical research. We actually have a gold mine of information available right in our own backyard. So plan to attend the meeting and see what would be of help to you in your search for your ancestors. You don t want to miss this one. Be sure to bring your wife or significant other as they are always welcome. Also don t forget to bring that prospective recruit. See y all there!!! 1

Recap of Recent Parades 2

3 During the month of November members of the Major Thomas J. Key Camp participated in two Veterans Day Parades. The first was our tenth appearance in Ottawa on Saturday 6 November. The contingent was under the command of First Lieutenant Commander Lee Crutchfield who did an outstanding job. Lee s report follows: Several members of the Key Camp were on hand to represent our camp at the annual Veterans Day Parade in Ottawa Kansas. We had our float with the 6 pounder cannon and riding along were Kris Amaro and her 3 year old granddaughter, Kaia, as well as Katie and Hannah McCaully, daughters of Eric and Carrie Martinez. Members of the color guard were Merle Leech, John Weir, Mike Smith, Lee Crutchfield and Travis and Rick Bullock. Carrie Martinez was in charge of decorating our float. After the parade the group set up the cannon in the city park where we had a small demonstration skirmish and firing demonstration. The gun was manned by Rick and Travis Bullock, Eric and Jacob Martinez and Lee Crutchfield. The weather was great and for once we st didn t freeze our tails off. 1 Lt Cmdr Lee Crutchfield The second parade the camp participated in was the Veterans Day Parade in Leavenworth, Kansas. Since it was held on a Thursday our turn out was small but highly spirited. We organized a joint Color Guard with the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War Franklin Camp #5. We carried the United States flag, the Kansas Flag, and the Confederate Battle flag. Carl Linck drove his 1983 Johnson Motors Presidential Rumble Seat Roadster decked out with Confederate flags. The participants from the camp were Paul Allen, Merle Leech, Carl Linck, and Spike Speicher. Commander Ed Kennedy of the Brigadier General William Steele Camp #1857 also fell in with us so we outnumbered the Yankees 5 to 3. Just before the start of the parade we had to opportunity to have our picture taken with the National American Miss Pageant winner Miss Kansas, Katie Sawalich of Tonganoxie. What a cutie! 3

Key Camp #1920, SCV and Franklin Camp #5, SUVCW, pose with Miss Kansas We made a big hit as we marched the one-mile long route in front of hundreds of spectators. We received a lot of applause all along the way and many, many people took our picture. The picture below, in which we are all in step, was taken by Compatriot Neal Hanley from the Brigadier General William Steele Camp #1857 in Leavenworth. Unfortunately Commander Kennedy is barely visible behind the Kansas flag. It was a great job by all involved. 4

Key Camp #1920 conducted headstone dedication ceremonies for three Confederate soldiers. Two soldiers were buried in Elmwood Cemetery in Kansas City, Missouri. Two separate ceremonies were conducted at that cemetery and then the group caravanned to Quindaro Cemetery for the final ceremony. It was a very memorable day for all involved.
