Private Isaac Eason Memorial

One of the visitors to our website graciously provided the Cumberland Plough Boys a donation in the memory of her 3rd Great Grandfather, Private Isaac Eason.   Private Eason served in the 38th North Carolina Regiment, Company K (“The Carolina Boys”).

It is the privilege of the Camp to be able to honor all of those who fought and served the Confederacy from the area.  We have undertaken a huge task, The Confederate Soldiers Project, which involves preparing a web page on each soldier, providing information on their family, and burial location if known.  It is our goal to honor the soldier, and to make it easier for their descendants to find information on them.

We appreciate those who support us financially in our efforts.
