How to join us!

Welcome to Our Virtual Encampment!

Major General Joseph Wheeler, Camp #863 is part of the 13th Brigade of the Georgia Divison of Sons of Confederate Veterans. Our camp headquarters is based in the "Olde Towne" district of the city of Conyers Georgia, about 30 miles east of Atlanta at the Philologia Masonic Lodge, 1005 Milstead Avenue, just down the street from the Rockdale County Courthouse Complex. 

The Sons of Confederate Veterans is a Historical Honor Society. Our mission is a simple one, to protect and preserve the accurate history of the Confederacy and the legacy of our ancestors that took up the Confederate Cause during the War Between The States. 

We invite you to learn more about us by exploring our virtual encampment here on our official web site. We hope you find what we present here to be infomative, educational, and useful to you. We also ask you to consider becoming a member or a friend of our encampment, or another SCV encampment if another is closer to where you live. Your participation is welcome and most needed! 

Please consider joining us in our cause!

A few words from the Web Master

By Hal Doby, Web Master, March 14, 2018
Hello Everyone
Spring is finally in the air and as we come out of our winter hibernation, activities are beginning to develop for Camp Wheeler. First up are plans for a great Confederate History and Heritage Month in April. There are many things going on this year with the all the talk about how our Confederate Memorials are under attack, this makes April a very important month.

Looking down the calendar, June will have it annual Division Reunion in Macon and the National Reunion in Franklin Tennessee.

Looking ahead in the Fall, we've been invited to participate in the Harris Homestead Festival in early October. This year the festival is celebrating the 200th anniversary of Walton County. Then towards the end of October we will once again have a presence at the Conyers Olde Town Festivel. Of course every second Tuesday of the month, we will have our monthly membership meetings.

If you have something to say or share and would like it to be posted on our website, please contact me directly and I'll be more than happy to accomodate you. 
That's all for now, Please enjoy the web site.
