• Greetings and welcome to our web site. The members of our organization are a brotherhood of descendants from soldiers who honorably fought for the South during the War for Southern Independence, also known by some as The American "Civil War." The purpose of our organization is to promote, preserve and defend the Confederate soldier and the Cause for which he fought. We accomplish our goals in numerous ways to include cultural and historical educational programs, institutional funding, the preservation of historical artifacts, the maintenance of Confederate monuments and cemeteries, plus involvement with historical battlefield reenactments and living histories.

    Chances are, if you and/or your family are from the South, you may have a Confederate soldier as an ancestor. We cordially invite you to find one of our meeting places, listed on this website, to allow us to help you make the connection. Most meetings start with a meal, have an informative historical presentation, and end with a short discussion on service projects, fund raising, and planning. Please consider this as an invitation, from me, as my personal guest.

    For the South,

    J. Daniel Bolick, Commander
    NC Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans

Welcome

Following The War Between the States, the surviving Southern soldiers came together to form a veterans organization known as The United Confederate Veterans (UCV). The Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) is the heir to this legacy. Formed in Richmond, Virginia in 1896, The Sons of Confederate Veterans continues to serve as a historical, patriotic, and cultural organization dedicated to insuring that a true history of the 1861-1865 period and our Confederate American heritage and culture are preserved and transmitted intact to future generations.

Men of the NC Division,
 
PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING SOME MONEY TOWARDS THE RESTORATION OF THE 54TH NC REGIMENTAL FLAG PROJECT. THIS REGIMENT WAS FORMED AT CAMP MANGUM, OUTSIDE RALEIGH, ON MAY 16, 1862, WITH COLONEL JOHN WIMBISH AS THE INITIAL COMMANDER. SOON AFTER ITS ORGANIZATION, THE REGIMENT WAS SENT TO EASTERN NORTH CAROLINA, WHERE IT PERFORMED A VARIETY OF DUTIES UNTIL ORDERED TO VIRGINIA IN LATE AUGUST OR EARLY SEPTEMBER 1862. ON JANUARY 19, 1863, THE FIFTY-FOURTH BECAME PART OF AN ALL-NORTH CAROLINA BRIGADE THAT INCLUDED ALSO THE FIRST BATTALION NORTH CAROLINA SHARPSHOOTERS, SIXTH REGIMENT NORTH CAROLINA STATE TROOPS, TWENTY-FIRST REGIMENT NORTH CAROLINA TROOPS (ELEVENTH REGIMENT NORTH CAROLINA VOLUNTEERS), AND FIFTY-SEVENTH REGIMENT NORTH CAROLINA TROOPS. THE BRIGADE WAS COMMANDED FIRST BY BRIGADIER GENERAL ROBERT F. HOKE, THEN BY BRIGADIER GENERAL ARCHIBALD C. GODWIN, AND FINALLY BY BRIGADIER GENERAL WILLIAM GASTON LEWIS. AS A COMPONENT OF THE ARMY OF NORTHERN VIRGINIA, THE BRIGADE FOUGHT IN MANY OF THE MAJOR ENGAGEMENTS IN THE EASTERN THEATER. ALTHOUGH THE FIFTY-FOURTH NORTH CAROLINA EXPERIENCED MODERATE LOSSES IN DEATHS AT THE BATTLES OF FREDERICKSBURG AND CHANCELLORSVILLE AND THE THIRD BATTLE OF WINCHESTER, ITS GREATEST SINGLE LOSS IN MANPOWER CAME AT THE BATTLE OF RAPPAHANNOCK STATION ON NOVEMBER 7, 1863, WHEN MORE THAN THREE HUNDRED MEMBERS WERE TAKEN PRISONER. HOWEVER, WITH THE ADDITION OF NEW RECRUITS, THE REGIMENT CONTINUED TO FIGHT UNTIL THE END OF THE WAR. AT APPOMATTOX ON APRIL 12, 1865, ONLY FIFTY-EIGHT MEN COULD BE MUSTERED TO RECEIVE THEIR PAROLES

"To you, Sons of Confederate Veterans, we will commit the vindication of the cause for which we fought. To your strength will be given the defense of the Confederate soldier's good name, the guardianship of his history, the emulation of his virtues, the perpetuation of those principles which he loved and which you love also, and those ideals which made him glorious and which you also cherish. Are you also ready to die for your country? Is your life worthy to be remembered along with theirs? Do you choose for yourself this greatness of soul? Not in the clamor of the crowded street. Not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng. But in ourselves are triumph and defeat."
