Welcome to the official site of the Ogeechee Rifles, Camp
#941 of the Sons of Confederate Veterans!
On 29 November 1990
the Ogeechee Rifles, Camp 941, Sons of Confederate Veterans, Statesboro,
Georgia was chartered in a ceremony
held in the courtroom of the Bulloch County Court House. Approximately twenty men were inducted into the camp and signed
the charter. Peter Winn Martin was the first Camp
Commander. The "Ogeechee
Rifles" name came from a Confederate unit from Screven County, Georgia.
Men from Bulloch, Screven, Evans, and Candler Counties
organized the Camp. Because the Ogeechee Rifles borders two of these counties, it was
deemed best to name the camp for a geographic location rather than the name of a person or county. The members of Camp 941 meet every third Thursday at RJ’s Steak and Seafood where we listen to
speakers discussing Confederate History and Southern Heritage. When not listening to these lectures the Camp members are busy
with other tasks which further the cause of the SCV Charge.
