McTeer Camp at the Battle of Blountville Re-enactment
The Major William A. McTeer Camp No. 39 of the SUVCW will be participating at the Battle of Blountville Re-enactment with a table and tent. The re-enactment will be Oct. 10-12, 2014 at the Old Hawley Farm, 1173 Hawley Road, Blountville, TN. There is a website for the event at http://www.battleofblountville.com/reenactment.htm. Camp Commander Lane has called for volunteers to help man the tent and table on Saturday and Sunday.

Brothers of McTeer Camp,
Commander Lane has asked me to let everyone know that the Sultana event planned for May will need to be postponed due to the unexpected
Illnesses of Brothers Wallace and Downs, who were leading the planning effort. We pray for their speedy recovery. When a new date is known, it will be communicated
to the membership.
In Fraternity, Loyalty and Charity,

Maj. William Anderson McTeer Camp Number 39
The Major William Anderson McTeer Camp No. 39, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War was Chartered in 2009, in Maryville, Tenn.
The Camp is named for Maj. William A. McTeer (1843-1925), who played an important role in the formation of Blount County. Besides being the first Judge of General Sessions, he held many other important positions in the community and at his church, New Providence Presbyterian. He also served as an officer in the Union Army during the Civil War and wrote a journal of his experiences, LOYAL MOUNTAINEERS. Of the eighteen men who joined the Union Army with McTeer, only five returned home after the War.
Soon after returning from battle, McTeer became a noted lawyer in Blount County. He was the first judge of the Court of General Sessions and also represented Blount County as a Legislator. McTeer later served as a Commissioner of Internal Revenue, Maryville City Recorder, a Trustee of Maryville College and numerous other high-level positions in the community.
An eloquent writer, McTeer penned the histories of both New Providence Church and Eusebia Church. He also wrote many articles for the local newspaper publications.
