The Missouri Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans are compiling as much information as is available for educational purposes in an effort to help people to better understand the efforts of  The Confederate States of America and the reasons surrounding secession of the Southern states. We believe that a better understanding through education will help Americans and people of all nationalities better relate to the Southern cause and hopefully eventually help to eliminate discrimination aimed toward Southern American heritage. We hope you enjoy this information and that it serves as an educational tool in what ever capacity it is deemed to be appropriate.
