A Virginia Oath Keepers chapter is in the process of starting up for the Appomattox area. At Supervisor John Hinkle and the Rev. Dr. Paul Michael Raymond’s request, Virginia Oathkeepers’ State President Stuart Cardwell visited with Appomattox citizens on Feb. 8 to discuss the organization’s efforts. 

Virginia Oath Keepers is a civic organization that seeks to provide education related to constitutional rights, provide training in how to grapple with man-made or natural disasters, and encourage nonpartisan political action. 

Hinkle said the chapter also may include the area of Prince Edward County. The supervisor said that peaceful methods are employed by Oath Keepers to speak up for constitutional rights.
