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, April 25, 2016
Hello Everyone
I want to make yet another apology for not keeping the website up to date. I have been under a great deal of stress and pressure dealing with a personal matter. While I  do not want to talk publicly about it or the details, let me simply say I have been helping a very dear friend with the last days of his life. The person passed around the first of this month and I have been dealing with that along with some personal illness.

As always, 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.
Hal Doby, Web Master
SCV Camp 863, Maj.-Gen. Joesph Wheeler
