ABOUT STONEWALL JACKSON CAMP 1381
The Sons of Confederate Veterans is an organization continually striving to preserve the
history and legacy of Confederate Heroes so that future generations may understand the motives that galvanized the Southern Cause. The SCV is the direct successor of the United Confederate Veterans, and it 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 and non-political organization dedicated to ensuring that a true history of the 1861-1865 period is preserved. Membership in the Sons of Confederate Veterans is open to all male descendants of any veteran who served honorably in the Confederate armed forces. Membership can be obtained through either direct or collateral family lines and kinship to a veteran must be documented genealogically. The minimum age for membership is 12. If you are interested in perpetuating the ideals that motivated your Confederate ancestor, the SCV needs you. The memory and reputation of the Confederate soldier, as well as the motives for his suffering and sacrifice, are being consciously distorted by some in an attempt to alter history. A unique part of our nation's cultural heritage will cease to exist unless the descendants of Southern soldiers resist those efforts.
The SCV has ongoing programs at the local, state, and national levels:
Preservation work, marking Confederate soldier's graves, historical reenactments,
scholarly publications, and regular meetings to discuss the military and political history of the War Between the States are only a few of the activities sponsored by local camps. We also vigorously defend any and all attacks on our Confederate heritage.
The patriot volunteer, fighting for country and his rights, makes the most reliable soldier on earth.
Gen Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson

"Everyone should do all in his power to collect and disseminate the truth, in the hope that it may find a place in history and descend to posterity. History is not the relation of campaigns and battles and generals or other individuals, but that which shows the principles for which the South contended and which justified her struggle for those principles."
-Robert E. Lee
