While on the Subject of the SCV

Here in Goldsboro, North Carolina, the local Sons of Confederate Veterans camp is the Goldsboro Rifles 760.

They are named after Co. A of the 27th North Carolina Infantry which was called the Goldsboro Rifles who came from the Wayne County area.

A member will be giving a talk on the group later in May at the Wayne County Historical Museum.

The Rifles continued to exist until World War I as one of my great uncles was a lieutenant in it.

After the war, the Rifles were instrumental in having the Confederate monument erected in the city's Willowdale Cemetery.
