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,

The citizen-soldiers who fought for the Confederacy personified the best qualities of America. The preservation of liberty and
freedom was the motivating factor in the South's decision to fight the Second American Revolution. The tenacity with which
Confederate soldiers fought underscored their belief in the rights guaranteed by the Constitution. These attributes are the
underpinning of our democratic society and represent the foundation on 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.
