The Sons of Confederate Veterans are organized with the mission to honor and memorialize the principles, sacrifices and history of our ancestors. This is our Southern heritage which is today threatened by some who wish to deny us our rights. There are those who would like to enforce their will on all America to eliminate all historical reference to the Confederacy. Revisionist "historians" have distorted our ancestors lives and we wish the truth to be known. We are an organization based on heritage, not hate.
In 1896, the Sons of Confederate Veterans was founded by the veterans and progeny of veterans who fought in the War Between the States. The Sons of Confederate Veterans was established as, and remains, an independent organization that supports the protection and preservation of Confederate heritage. Current members are descendants of the original defenders of Confederate heritage and are not aligned or affiliated with any other organization other than the Military Order of the Stars and Bars.
