Local historian Stacey Jones will discuss the Goldsboro Rifles militia in the aftermath of the Civil War on Thursday night at a meeting of Camp 760 of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at the Seven Springs Restaurant.

The military unit created in the first half of the 19th century was re-established in 1875 and in 1898 was called to active duty with the U.S. Army in the Spanish-American War.

The public is invited.
