The Sons of Confederate Veterans is an organization continually striving to preserve the
history and legacy of Confederate Heroes so that future generations may understand the
motives that galvanized the Southern Cause. The SCV is the direct successor of the United
Confederate Veterans, and it is the oldest hereditary organization for male descendants of
Confederate Soldiers. Organized at Richmond, Virginia, in 1986, the SCV continues to serve
as a historical, patriotic and non-political organization dedicated to ensuring that a true
history of the 1861-1865 period is preserved. Membership in the Sons of Confederate
Veterans is open to all male descendants of any veteran who served honorably in the
Confederate armed forces. Membership can be obtained through either direct or collateral
family lines and kinship to a veteran must be documented genealogically. The minimum
age for membership is 12. If you are interested in perpetuating the ideals that motivated
your Confederate ancestor, the SCV needs you. The memory and reputation of the
Confederate soldier, as well as the motives for his suffering and sacrifice, are being
consciously distorted by some in an attempt to alter history. A unique part of our nation's
cultural heritage will cease to exist unless the descendants of Southern soldiers resist those
The SCV has ongoing programs at the local, state, and national levels:
Preservation work, marking Confederate soldier's graves, historical reenactments,
scholarly publications, and regular meetings to discuss the military and political history of
the War Between the States are only a few of the activities sponsored by local camps. We
also vigorously defend any and all attacks on our Confederate heritage.
