Regarding South Carolina Generals Memorial. P.A.C.S. Provisional Army of the Confederate States
To meet the damands of the immediate crisis, the Provisional Army of the Confederate States ( P.A.C.S. ) - a force equivalent to the U.S. Volunteer Army - was created by legislation passed on February 28, 1861 (a week before the authorizing legislation for the Regular Army was passed, March 6 - The Army of the Confederate States of America (ACSA)). Because the fledging nation was at war almost from the start and troops had to be raised, virtually all new Confederate soldiers were mustered in P.A.C.S. units. Virtually all regular, volunteer, and conscripted men preferred to enter this organization since officers could achieve a higher rank in the Provisional Army than they could in the Regular Army.
