 Do you have a confederate ancestor in your family history.
We would love to add you to the camp roster.

Our camp is named after Albert G. Jenkins, who was a lawyer and later became one of the most famous generals in the Civil War.  He was the leader of the Border Rangers and campaigned mainly in the West Virginia area which was actually the state of Virginia until June 20th 1863 when it was conficated by the North in order to cut off railroad and waterways which were supply routes to the south.
Albert Galletin Jenkins lived on a plantation on WV State Route 2 in an area now known as Greenbottom, WV.  This area was named after his plantation of 4000 plus acres bordering between Route 2 and the Ohio river.  His plantation house still stands today.
​​  
The plantation house was built about 1835, and is a 2 1/2 story, rectangular, brick dwelling in a late period Federal style. It sits on a sandstone foundation and the interior has a center hall, single pile plan. The most prominent resident was 1850s lawyer and politician Albert Gallatin Jenkins (1830-1864).  The Gen. Albert Gallatin Jenkins House — known historically (along with its 4,395 acre estate) as "Green Bottom" — is located on the east bank of the Ohio River about 7 miles north of Lesage, Cabell County, West Virginia, USA. 
It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.  The picture on the right shows the house before restoration.  The bricks were painted white and had to be removed. The side structure (on left in the picture)  was eliminated because it was not part of the original architecture.  Actual descendants lived in the house up until the late '70's when it was purchased by the Corps Of Engineers.  
 
The above picture on the left  is the view of the rear of the house facing State Route 2.  Above small middle picture shows the front of the house facing the Ohio river about 1/4 of a mile beyond.  The far right small picture is the Basement door at the rear which was a part to the original foundation.  The bottom right picture is the East side of the house with the rear to the left. 

Our Goal
We are the SCV, Son's of Confederate Veterans.  Our goal is to preserve our heritage and history and teach all who are interested about the the Civil War and the Real history about it.  We are non political, make no religious statements and above all are not racists.  We try to enlighten those who have been misinformed about the reasons for this terrible war that cost this nation 620,000 soldiers lives.  We will not present a history lesson here but may discuss the war from time to time historically.  But this site is about Camp A. G. Jenkins and the SCV.  I hope you enjoy the site.  If you have any comments email me.  Col. Roger A. Casey
