The Sons of Confederate Veterans is the direct heir of the United Confederate Veterans, and the oldest hereditary organization for male descendents 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 South, especially the 1861-1865 period, is preserved and presented to future generations.
The citizen-soldiers who fought for the Confederacy personified the best qualities of America. The tenacity with which Confederate soldiers fought demonstrated their belief in the rights guaranteed by the Constitution. Today, the SCV is preserving the history and legacy of these heroes so that future generations can understand their motives and character.
If you're a male descendent of anyone who honorably served the Confederate military, claim your heritage now with pride. Contact the individuals named below for membership information or visit our next meeting. Visitors are Welcome!
Camp 1657 meets the 2nd Tuesday of every month, at the Western Sizzlin Restaurant in Pooler. Eating & fellowship, 6:30PM; the meeting starts at 7:30PM.
