Welcome to the North Carolina Society!

Pledge of the MOSB

We, the posterity of the Officer Corps and civil officials of the Confederacy, do pledge ourselves to commemorate and honor the service of leadership these men rendered in the cause of the fundamental American principles of self-determination and states' rights and to perpetuate the true history of their deeds for the edification of ourselves, our society, and for generations yet unborn.

   We had a good turnout of MOSB compatriots, despite some rough weather. Some left their homes with snow falling down.  The wind was blowing and the temperatures rose.  Felt good to get out!  Members of the Garnett-Pettigrew Chapter, the WHC Whiting Chapter, the Henry C. Grady Chapter, the Zeb Vance Chapter, and the Children of the Confederacy's Charlotte Grays Chapter 844 participated in the dedication!  This was the fourth wayside marker.  Looking forward to working with the State Cultural Resources to help install more markers.

The NC Society is continuing their support for the Tar Heel Junior Historian Association's 2015 Civil War Essay Contest and Civil War Markers and Monuments Photography Contest.  The awards ceremony will be held at the North Carolina Museum of History in the Spring of 2015.

The War Between the States produced some of the most outstanding civil and military leaders in the history of mankind. To perpetuate the idealism that animated the Confederate Cause and to honor the courage, devotion and endurance of those who dedicated their lives and services during four years of devastating war, and who, throughout the dreadful decade of reconstruction, labored heroically for the restoration of self-government as the most precious heritage of the American Revolution, male descendants of the officers who honorably served in the Army, Navy and other commands of the Confederate States of America and male descendants of the elected and appointed officials of the Confederate Executive and Legislative branches of government unite to establish The Military Order of the Stars and Bars, a patriotic Society.

If eligible, we invite you to join this prestigious organization.
