Ploughboys.org Website Launch

Welcome to the Ploughboys.org website!  We are starting out with the bare bones, but we hope to add in news about our current activities, information on our ancestors, information on the original Cumberland Plough Boys, information on all the units from Cumberland, Sampson, Bladen, Robeson, and Harnett counties, and a special section on graveyards.   This is not a quick venture, but will be a process that will take many months of hard work.  Our primary purpose is to honor the men who so bravely served the Confederate States of America.  If you have any suggestions or comments, please send them to cumberlandploughboys@rocketmail.com
