SHERMAN, TX-The Sons of Confederate Veterans camped out at the Grayson County Courthouse Saturday to celebrate "Confederate History Month" in Texas.
They set up a camp much like one in the Civil War, along with a table with weapons and ammunition from that period. Gen. Robert E. Lee's death mask was also displayed and it's the only copy aside from the original.
There was also a re-enactment in the front lawn.
First lieutenant commander, Terry Phillips, said people have been passing by looking through the displays.

"I hope that they learn about the true meaning of the south. It's not, we're not here to support the Ku Klux Klan or any racial group, we're here to support the confederate soldier who fought for his country," he said.

The Sons of Confederate Veterans will have "Rally the Flag" at Frontier village in November.
