Over the weekend, Joey Nolan represented the TN Division of the SCV, and Cumberland Mtn. Rifles, Camp 386, Tracy City, at a Knoxville event recognizing former Tennessee State Representative Harry T. Burn.
A statue to Burn, who cast the deciding vote ratifying the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote, was celebrated in Knoxville. A reception was held on June 8, at the East Tennessee Historical Society Museum. A parade, with participants dressed in 1920s period clothing and reenacting the events of 1920, with the unveiling of the Burn statue, took place on June 9.
Burn was a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, as well as a past commander of Longstreet-Zollicoffer, Camp 87, in Knoxville.
TN Div. Lt. Cmdr. Joey Nolan stated it was great to represent the TN Div. and Tracy City Camp 386 in honoring a past SCV member and Camp 87 commander, along with present members of the Knoxville SCV Camp.
