Sons of Confederate Veterans Camp 379

“First at Bethel, Farthest to the Front at Gettysburg and Chickamauga, and Last at Appomattox” is a traditional saying honoring the role of North Carolina’s soldiers in the Civil War. This sentence begins the article describing the latest commendation for the McDowell County’s Camp 379, Sons of Confederate Veterans.

Take a moment to scan the Sons of Confederate Veterans, Camp 379 website to discover the history of “The McDowell Men” who were “First at Bethel, Farthest to the Front at Gettysburg and Chickamauga, and Last at Appomattox”.

There is a pdf document that lists the cemeteries in McDowell County where Confederate Veterans are buried.
