Who We Are

We are a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of Southern heritage and the truth as it pertains to what the boys in gray fought, suffered, and died for.

Our main objective is education. We try to inform the public and especially our younger generation about the true causes of the War of Northern Aggression. We try to aid any individuals who seek their Confederate ancestors. We work to erect new Confederate monuments and to maintain the ones which are already standing. Many more duties and public services are performed by the SCV; the list goes on and on.

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 ensuring that a true history of the 1861-1865 period is preserved.
