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, September 10, 2014
Is it me, or is it as we age, it seems time seems to speed up around you? It feels like it was only yesterday we were celebrating the arrival of 2014 and now we are only three months away from 2015! Amazing!
Things seem to be humming along here at Camp Wheeler. As the leaves start to turn color, it will be time for us to participate in the Olde Towne Festival in Conyers in October. It will soon be time for us to have our elections for another set of officers to run the camp. After that, it's time to sit down and have a great Lee-Jackson Dinner as the cycle starts over again.
There are several recent updates I've put around the website. Take a stoll through the pages and see what you can find that's new.
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
