Holland Family History in America

The Holland family have a rich heritage among those who fought on the side of the South during the War Between the States, otherwise known as the War of Northern Aggression. Many of their lives and accomplishments have been forgotten. It is our hope to keep their stories alive through the work of this website. We welcome your comments and contributions to this ongoing effort. Enjoy reading about the confederate history of the Holland Family in the Public Records - Military section of this website.

Many Hollands fought in the “War Between the States” in 1862-1866.  The National Park Service lists 198 Hollands from North Carolina  as fighting on the Confederate side for the South and two Hollands from North Carolina on the Union side.

About this History

My father's people came from Wayne County, North Carolina.  Although I live in Alabama now, I inherited his love of our heritage.  So it is with love for him and admiration for his strong desire to preserve our history that I dedicate my part in compiling and maintaining this Holland Family History and Tree to my father,
