Honoring Confederate Soldiers Since 1896
Following the War Between the States, the surviving Southern soldiers came together to form a veterans organization known as the United Confederate Veterans [UCV]. The Sons of Confederate Veterans [SCV] is the heir to this legacy.
The SCV is the oldest hereditary organization for male descendants of Confederate soldiers. Organized at Richmond, Virginia in 1896, the SCV continues to serve as a historical, patriotic heritage organization dedicated to ensuring that a true history of the 1861-1865 period is preserved.
The citizen soldiers who fought for the Confederacy were motivated by the preservation of liberty and freedom in the South.

These attributes are the underpinning of our republic and represent the foundation upon which this nation was built. Today the Sons of Confederate Veterans is preserving the history and legacy of these heroes so future generations can understand the motives that animated the Southern Cause.
