On March 3, 1927, the American Legion Post 58 was issued a temporary charter from the Department Headquarters in Palatka, FL. They started out in 1927 with 15 members. Since then we have grown to 395 members through the hard work and dedication of their committed members. American Legion Post 58 was christened "Wall~Rives Post 58" on May 26, 1947 in honor of Winchester Wall and Hugh Rives, two brave soldiers and residents of the area, who lost their lives during WWII, in the Bataan Death March.
