The Charleston Calhoun Hiwassee Historical Society will meet today at 3 p.m. at the Hiwassee River Heritage Center in Charleston.

Billy Nichols, a life-long resident of Calhoun, will present a program on the various Civil War camps which existed in Calhoun and Charleston between the years 1861-1864.

Nichols has spent 35 years researching the Civil War history of the area, and will have on view at the meeting many Civil War relics recovered within both towns.

Also at the meeting, a map of Tennessee in 1823 will be presented to the Heritage Center. This map has been made available through the Jefferson County Historical Society, and shows Calhoun as the county seat, and includes the locations of the Old Indian Agency, military camps, roads and waterways.

The public is invited to attend this meeting.
