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, September 30, 2015
Hello Everyone
Fall is thankfully in the air! It is once again so pleasant to be outdoors. In October, Camp Wheeler will once again participate in the Conyers Olde Towne Festival, now in its 35th year. The event will take place on Saturday, October 24th, the weekend before Halloween. This is going to be the last big event the camp will be involved with this year and considering the controversy over all things Confederate as of late, this is a very important venue we need to have great group participation in.

We will need compatriots to volunteer time all day for this event. Any and all participation is welcome and we ask everyone to consider joining us. Please attend our October membership meeting or contace Adjutant Steve Camp or Commander John Maxey for more information.

As always, if you have something to 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
