A Report on the Vince Ellison Tour of New England


Camp Constitution was honored and pleased to host a speaking tour in New England for our friend and best-selling author Vince Ellison.  On Thursday afternoon May 2, Rev. Craft and I picked Vince up at Boston’s Logan Airport and after fighting heavy traffic, brought him to his first engagement at the East Warren (R.I.) Rod and Gun Club to speak an outdoor venue to a large and enthusiastic group.  This event was hosted by our friends at Citizens Organized to Restore Rights (CORR) and Super Happy Fun America   https://superhappyfunamerica.org/       Please visit CORR’s website to find a link to Vince’s speech https://www.corrusa.com/   

The attendees didn’t want Vince to leave.  He spent close to two hours after his speech signing copies of his book Crime Inc and speaking to his new friends.

Vince’s first engagement on Friday May 3 was a luncheon at the Lane House in Lexington, MA.  The luncheon concluded with an impromptu signing of “My Country Tis of Thee” led my Mrs. Edith Craft, Camp Constitution’s Junior Camp Program Director outside of the Lane House:

Since this was Vince’s first time visiting the area, we gave him a tour of the Lexington Battle Green where we had the opportunity to meet a homeschool family from Texas and a Lexington Minuteman.  We made a short video of Vince reading the names of the men who were killed on Lexington Green:


Vince’s second speaking engagement on Friday took place at One Cranberry Hill in Lexington which was hosted by Mr. Rick Stoppe and Liberty Church https://www.libertychurchma.com/

Vince’s NH speaking engagements were at 11:00 AM  in Loudon, hosted by our friend Kathleen LoFaro who treated us to a hearty lunch afterwards, and in my hometown of Alton at 7:00 PM.  After lunch, we brought Vince to Concord where we visited the State Capitol Building and the Franklin Pierce Homestead.  During the Loudon speech, Vince mentioned that Al Sharpton was hired by the Tobacco Lobby.  We asked him to do a short video going on the subject:

Prior to bringing Vince to Logan Airport on Sunday, we took a short trip to Boston to show Vince some historic sites including the grave site of the victims of the Boston Massacre, and the “Embrace” statue where Vince where we made a short video of Vince giving his opinion of the statue:
