GenJohnstonStatueTar Heel Monument Fund

Our current project is the statue to General Joseph E. Johnston. The statue was dedicated on March 20, 2010, on private property donated to the Sons of Confederate Veterans located adjacent to the Bentonville Battlefield State Historic Site.

This is the first Confederate general's statue to be erected in North Carolina. Renowned artist and sculpter Carl Regutti was commissioned to sculpt the statue.

We will continue to raise funds to complete additions and improvements to the statue area such as plaques, brick walkways, lighting, etc.

Oakwood Cemetery (Raleigh, NC) Fund

In the continuing effort to beautify the Confederate section in Oakwood Cemetery in Raleigh, funds are needed to complete the installation of paved walkways and other such upgrades. For the past two years we have been soliciting funds for Oakwood Cemetery in Richmond, Virginia, but now it's time to work closer to home. Let's all join together and help to complete this beautification effort. Our Confederate section will be the showcase of the South.

Rally to the Colors Flag Fund

Our state has one of the largest original flag collections in existence today. If we don't preserve these flags, who will? We are currently working to conserve the headquarters flag of Brigadier General Rufus C. Barringer, which may have also been used by the 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 5th NC Cavalry. This is a third bunting ANV Infantry battle flag. Barringer was born on December 2nd, 1821, into a distinguished Cabarrus County family. He graduated from the University of North Carolina in 1842 and became a prominent lawyer and politician in his home county.

Uniform Conservation Fund

The Francis W. Bird frock coat conservation donation has been completed! A new artifact for conservation will be selected at the Summer DEC in September. Please continue your support for the conservation of these priceless articles.

Sam Davis Youth Camp: Honor, Respect, Truth.

Now is the time to instill in our youth three simple traits: honor, respect and telling the truth. In today's educational system these traits often seem to be lost. The Sons of Confederate Veterans have created a special week long summer camp where the youth of today have the opportunity to experience a wonderful time while they learn about their heritage and the true history of the South. Consider a donation to assist in sending deserving young people for this experience. They are our future and the future of our Confederation.

Flags Across the Carolinas

NCDivisionPinThe SCV Mechanized Cavalry of North Carolina is proud to announce that the "FLAGS ACROSS THE CAROLINAS" fund has been officially established to raise money to support the project of the placement of mega size Confederate flags in many high profile locations on private land across the Carolinas.

This exciting project was adopted by the NCSCVMC in a partner-ship with the North Carolina Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans to post the Confederate Battle Flag like the mega flags flying currently in other States all over the South like the two new flags flying off I-95 in the State of Virginia.

The Nathan Bedford Forrest Camp 803 of Sanford volunteered to sponsor this project by purchasing these new pins to be given as a gift for donations to this fund for the North Carolina Division.

There is a minimum donation of $5.50 required to receive one of these new North Carolina Division pins but all money donated above the minimum amount will be collected and donated by the NB Forrest Camp 803 to FLAGS ACROSS THE CAROLINAS.

The North Carolina Division pins can also be purchased individually. Orders are now being taken and please add extra money for postage when mailing your order form if
only purchasing pins at the minimum price.

Join us in making our Ancestors proud by considering your support to this project with a donation TODAY!

Thank You for Your Support
