• 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

Dear Educator,

In this day of high tech toys and easy travel, one would think that it would be an easy matter to educate our youth. But we, as educators, know this is far from the truth. So great a problem has been caused by the advent of new ideas and technologies that the simple practice of teaching our students has become a task for giants to undertake.

You may ask why any organization would undertake this task. We, the North Carolina Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, feel it is important that you have the needed tools. The NC SCV Education Committee has prepared teaching materials for use by our teachers and the following are enclosed.

• Handouts for your students inviting them to participate in a statewide essay contest.
• A list of possible lesson plans (which follow the state guidelines) to help you during your presentation of history of 1861-65.

In addition, our website, www.ncscv.net, contains an Educational services site which currently has eight course guides similar to the one enclosed. Additional lesson plans will be added in the future. Please feel free to contact me for information about our local mentor's program and about reenactors who will be happy to visit your school and present "first person" history lessons to your students.

Thank you for your time and your energy as a teacher. If you have questions or need additional information, please contact me.

 

Until then, I remain Remembering and Forever Vigilant,

 

Edward Lee Harris, Jr.
Education Committee Chairman

Written by James Hicks   
Saturday, 19 December 2009 15:43

AN ORDINANCE to dissolve the union between the State of North Carolina and the other States united with her, under the compact of government entitled "The Constitution of the United States."


We, the people of the State of North Carolina in convention assembled, do declare and ordain, and it is hereby declared and ordained, that the ordinance adopted by the State of North Carolina in the convention of 1789, whereby the Constitution of the United States was ratified and adopted, and also all acts and parts of acts of the General Assembly ratifying and adopting amendments to the said Constitution, are hereby repealed, rescinded, and abrogated.

 

We do further declare and ordain, that the union now subsisting between the State of North Carolina and the other States, under the title of the United States of America, is hereby dissolved, and that the State of North Carolina is in full possession and exercise of all those rights of sovereignty which belong and appertain to a free and independent State.


Done in convention at the city of Raleigh, this the 20th day of May, in the year of our Lord 1861, and in the eighty-fifth year of the independence of said State.

Why Session- Proclamation? PDF Print E-mail
Written by James Hicks   
Saturday, 19 December 2009 15:44

Whereas, by Proclamation of Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, followed by a requisition of Simon Cameron, Secretary of War, I am informed that the said Abraham Lincoln has made a call for 75,000 men to be employed for the invasion of the peaceful homes of the South, and for the violent subversion of the liberties of a free people, constituting a large part of the whole population of the late United States.

 

And, whereas, this high-handed act of tyrannical outrage is not only in violation of all constitutional law, in utter disregard of every sentiment of humanity and Christian civilization, and conceived in a spirit of aggression unparalleled by any act of recorded history, but is a direct step towards the subjugation of the whole South, and the conversion of a free Republic, inherited from our fathers, into a military despotism, to be established by worse than foreign enemies on the ruins of our once glorious Constitution of Equal Rights.

 

Now, therefore, I, John W. Ellis, Governor of the State of North Carolina, for these extraordinary causes, do here by issue this, my Proclamation, notifying and requesting the Senators and Members of the House of Commons of the General Assembly of North Carolina, to meet in Special Session at the Capitol, in the City of Raleigh, on Wednesday the first day of May next.

 

And I furthermore exhort all good citizens throughout the State to be mindful that their first allegiance is due to the Sovereignty which protects their homes and dearest interests, as their first service is due for the sacred defense of their hearths, and of the soil which holds the graves of our glorious dead. United action in defense of the sovereignty of North Carolina, and of the rights of the South, becomes now the duty of all.

 

Given under my hand, and attested by the Great Seal of the State. Done at the City of Raleigh, the 17th day of April; A.D, 1861, and in the eighty-fifth year of our Independence.
