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, January 11, 2017
Hello Everyone
2016 has come to an end. It was certainly a year of incredible events. As 2017 begins, we look forward with hope and optimism. Here at Camp Wheeler, we have elected a new Command Staff that will be sworn in at the annual Lee-Jackson Dinner on the 21st. The dinner looks to be a very exciting event that will kick off our new year.

During our dinner, we will swear in our new 2017-2019 Command Staff to start the new year. I hope 2017 is as successful as our previous years have been.

There is one bit of news you should have already read. We held a staff meeting on January 10th to prepare for the Lee-Jackson Dinner. As we were concluding, Jerry New pointed out that our February Membership Meeting fell on Valentine's Day. Since this could mean a bit of discord in our personal lives, the staff chose to move the meeting back to the 21st. We will return to our traditional second Tuesday date beginning in March.

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
