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 MasterBy Hal Doby, Web Master, December 7, 2014
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and are enjoying this special time of year. For me, 2014 went by in a flash. I can't believe we are just weeks away from a brand new year.
I want to apologize for not updating the site over the last few weeks. My right hand was mauled by a cat and I have had to limit my use of that hand as it heals. It is still screwed up, but at least I am making progress on it.
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.
SCV Camp 863, Maj.-Gen. Joesph Wheeler
