• 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

Men of the Old North State,


I am proud to report on another successful National Reunion and that the Old North State has much to be proud of. Our Division was well represented at the Reunion with a broad spectrum of attendees from across the Old North State, however, special recognition goes to Commander Danny Stanley and the men of the Fayetteville Arsenal Camp. They sent eight men to represent their Camp!


After listening to 3 days of presentations and reports from across the Confederation, I can tell you that we have much to be thankful for here in North Carolina and I am convinced that we have the best Division in the SCV. The national organization is talking about starting a PAC but NC already has one... other Divisions talk of the need for a Heritage Protection bill but NC already has one...other Divisions lost their SCV car tags but NC still has theirs...we must build on that success and keep taking the fight to the enemy!


Tom Strain and Paul Gramling were elected as our new Commander and Lt. Commander in Chief. They are now are limited to one two-year term per an amendment approved at the Reunion (our Division Chaplain Reverend Dr. Herman White made the motion).


I would like to congratulate Division Chief of Staff Ronnie Roach for his election to the position of Commander of the Army of Northern Virginia by acclamation. I am also proud to announce that Frank Powell, Division Parliamentarian and editor of the national magazine, received the Jefferson Davis Chalice - the highest award the SCV can bestow on a member. On top of that, Rev. Dr. Herman White was awarded the Robert E. Lee Award - the second-highest award given to members by the SCV. Both men were recognized for their many years of selfless service to our Division and the National Organization.


In addition, two Arsenal Camp members and past Sam Davis Youth Camp attendees are now Sam Davis Youth Camp junior counselors and were featured speakers. Delance Stevens spoke before the entire SCV body and received kudos from across the Confederation for his eloquence and message. Brandon Herrera spoke before the ANV body and delivered an excellent message that the Sam Davis Youth Camp is the West Point of the SCV. Several out of state men came to me and bragged on both of these Tar Heels.


The North Carolina Division SCV and OCR hosted a hospitality suite Thursday night and many were in attendance, however, I hope to see more next year. Speaking of which, next year's Reunion is in Memphis and I hope its closer geographical proximity means that we can have a large showing. National Reunions are fun and educational but more importantly, they are where the business of the SCV is conducted and where fraternal bonds are built. It is important to attend.


Thanks to all that showed up and to all the others in the Old North State that work so hard every day to help fulfill the Charge!


See you on the front lines...



R. Kevin Stone

Division Commander

Men of the Old North State:


I hope that you are all well and rested from the holiday and that this notice finds you full of energy for the Cause. In furtherance of the recent acquisition of our Division Headquarters, I have formed a special task force to assist the owner of Oak Grove Plantation with any logistics that are needed in order for it to become operational. The task force will consist of:


South Central Brigade Commander, Marshall Pike (Chairman)
[email protected] / (919) 202-0724


South East Brigade Commander, Steve Hulen
[email protected] / (910) 385-7547


Southern Brigade Commander, Tommy Taylor
[email protected] / (910) 865-4783


In forming this task force and working with Oak Grove, we will be able to draw upon resources over a wide area that are in close proximity to our new Division Headquarters. I hope that you will see fit to reach out to these fine men and offer your services and abilities to help out with our new Division Headquarters.


See you on the front lines…

Men of the Old North State:


I am excited to announce that we now have a Division Headquarters in the antebellum Oak Grove plantation owned by Mr. & Mrs. Ron Lewis of Godwin, NC. Oak Grove is located on the Averasboro Battlefield and is the site of a very pro-Confederate reenactment each Spring. We have a dedicated room set aside that will serve as the Division HQ Office and we will place SCV literature and a display there for education and recruitment of the many visitors touring the site.


I am proud that the Division has incurred ZERO expense in obtaining our Headquarters and we will form a partnership with Oak Grove that is mutually beneficial to all parties involved. However, this partnership will require some effort on our part as members of the Division. I am asking you to support this project in at least one of many ways, including but not limited to: volunteering time at the site to help upgrade the facilities; learning the history of Oak Grove and the Battle of Averasboro in order to become volunteer docents; assisting with activities relating to the annual reenactment; and eventually, when the planned site museum opens, placing items in it on loan for display.


This is a great opportunity for the Division. We now have a Headquarters to hold special recruitment events at the reenactment as well as at stand-alone SCV-sponsored events, Camp or Brigade meetings and picnics, press conferences, possible visits by elected officials, and whatever other possibilities arise.


Please contact your Brigade Commander if you would like to serve on the Division Headquarters Committee and/or have time, talents, or items that would benefit Oak Grove Plantation.

See you on the front lines…

R. Kevin Stone
Commander, NC Division

PRESS RELEASE


A message from Division Commander Stone to be read at the July 4th “Salute to Independence” at the State Capitol in Raleigh, NC:


I bring greetings on behalf of the North Carolina Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans. We think it especially important to honor our Confederate veteran ancestors today because like the patriots of 1776, they sacrificed their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor fighting for their independence during the second American Revolution. Ponder the words within the preamble to the Declaration of Independence and consider that our Confederate ancestors were no different in their motives and actions than their Revolutionary forefathers of less than a hundred years before:


“…Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.


Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”


We can pay these men no higher honor than to remember them alongside their Revolutionary ancestors. In their suffering and death during the War for Southern Independence, North Carolina’s Confederate Soldiers confirmed their sincere dedication to what our Founding Fathers started on this very day 240 years ago.

Our Confederate Heritage is under attack like never before in history. We are witnessing historical genocide and an attempt to eliminate everything Confederate in our nation. Please consider contributing to the defense fund (SCV Heritage Defense Fund). This fund will allow us to continue to fight to keep our Monuments, Flags and Confederate heritage around for future generations.
