Heritage and Honor!
|If you are a male descendant of a soldier or sailor who fought for the Confederacy, we need you to help us preserve the memory and reputation of the Confederate soldier. The motives for his suffering and sacrifice are consciously distorted by some in an attempt to alter history. Unless the descendants of Southern soldiers resist those efforts, a unique part of our nation’s cultural heritage will cease to exist.We actively condemn racism and bigotry of all forms (including anti-Southern).
We abhor the misuse and abuse of the Confederate Battle Flag by groups who would pervert this sacred symbol for purposes of racial supremacy or other beliefs of the political fringe.
Membership is open to all male descendants regardless of ethnic ancestry, political, or religious background. Membership can be obtained through either direct or collateral (such as an uncle or cousin relationship) family lines to a veteran who served honorably in the Confederate armed forces. Kinship must be documented genealogically, and we will help you do it through our network of genealogists assisting you in tracing your ancestor’s Confederate service. For those with Southern sympathies who cannot document an ancestor or are currently researching for ancestors, we have an associate membership available.

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 attempts to alter history. Unless the descendants of Southern soldiers resist those efforts, a unique part of our nation’s cultural heritage will cease to exist.
