General Joseph E. Johnston statue
at Bentonville Battlefield
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.
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.

The 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.
