Parish Mounted Rangers Camp #2222
Sons of Confederate Veterans
A Short History of our camp's beginning:
The beginnings of our camp formed in November 2011 when four members of the Pvt. John S. Bird, Jr - Palmetto Guard Camp #38 (North Charleston) started talking about spreading the SCV to Goose Creek. As these talks progressed over the next few months, it was discovered Goose Creek had a lot more Confederate history than was originally known. Excitement about the new camp grew and plans for the new camp began to evolve.
In early December 2011, the intentions to form a new camp in Goose Creek were formally announced to the 10th Brigade and the South Carolina Division, SCV. Immediately, several new membership applications were submitted, as well as member transfers from other nearby camps. The prospective officers of the forming camp also gained the support and friendship of Mayor Michael Heitzler of the City of Goose Creek. By mid-March 2012, the forming camp had 15 dedicated members, with at least six more showing strong interest.
We officially became Camp #2222 in early April 2012 with new members, inactive members coming back, and transfers. We were off to a good start.
Since we organized, we were named the R.E. Lee Sandlapper Camp of the year for 2013, 2014 and 2015. Were also the National Dr. George Tabor Camp of the Year for 2013. In 2014, the SC Division of the SCV started a new award and that was the Gold Star Camp. We were one of two camps that were awarded that distinguished award.
