About the camp
The Sons of Confederate Veterans is a genealogical-historical organization dedicated to preserving the history and honoring the memory of our Confederate ancestors. The SCV is the direct heir of the United Confederate Veterans, and 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, and non-political organization dedicated to insuring that a true history of the 1861-65 period is preserved.
The Sons of Confederate Veterans is not affiliated with any other organization, with the exception of The Military Order of the Stars and Bars, an organization for the male descendants of the Confederate Officer Corps and civil government officials.
