The Sons of Confederate Veterans is the direct heir of the United Confederate Veterans, and the oldest hereditary organization for male descendants of Confederate soldiers. Organized at Richmond, Virginia, in 1896, the Sons of Confederate Veterans continues to serve as a historical, patriotic, and non-political organization dedicated to insuring 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 full membership is 12, but there is no minimum for Cadet membership.

If you are interested in becoming a member, please join us at one of our monthly meetings, held the 3rd Tuesday of each month. Visitors are always welcome!

The Charge

"To you, Sons of Confederate Veterans, we submit the vindication of the Cause for which we fought; to your strength be given the defense of the Confederate Soldier's good name, the guardianship of his history, the emulation of his virtues, the perpetuation of those principals he loved and which made him glorious and which you also cherish. Remember, it is your duty to see that the true history of the South is presented to future generations."

Lt. General Stephen Dill Lee, Commander General

Quotes

We feel that our cause is just and holy; we protest solemnly in the face of mankind that we desire peace at any sacrifice save that of honour and independence; we ask no conquest, no aggrandizement, no concession of any kind from the States with which we were lately confederated; all we ask is to be let alone; that those who never held power over us shall not now attempt our subjugation by arms.

PresidentJeffersonDavis 75President Jefferson Davis

Once you get them running, you stay right on top of them, and that way a small force can defeat a large one every time... Only thus can a weaker country cope with a stronger; it must make up in activity what it lacks in strength.

The Abbeville Institute

abbeville institute logo

The Abbeville Institute was founded in 2002 by a group of scholars in history, literature, philosophy, religion, and other disciplines who conducted a conference on “Modernity and the Southern Tradition” at the University of Virginia. We were concerned that the Southern tradition is no longer taught in colleges and universities except as a function of the ideological needs of others. With few exceptions, the Southern tradition is presented as little more than the story of racism and slavery.

The Institute was formed as a response to this intellectual challenge. Its purpose is to critically explore what is true and valuable in the Southern tradition. To this end, we hold summer schools for college and graduate students as well as conferences for academics at colleges and universities. We also conduct educational conferences for the public.

Understanding the War Between the States

Understanding the WBTS

A Supplemental Booklet by 16 Writers that Enables A More Complete and Truthful Study of American History (Middle School, High School, College and Beyond)

This Supplemental History Study Booklet has been organized and written by sixteen Society members as a gift to young and older Americans seeking a truthful, realistic and deep understanding of the War Between the States, including the 1850s political sectionalism within the Northern States that gave rise to their Republican Party, the resulting Secession of many Southern States, and the brutal, four-year war campaign by President Lincoln and Republican Governors to conquer Seceded States, force them back under the Federal Government and impose Political Reconstruction on everyone.

The booklet can be downloaded for free, read online or a version can be purchased at Amazon in a printed version or e-book version.

Understanding “The Battle Hymn of the Republic”

Consider reading the article, Understanding “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” by Howard Ray White, at the Abbeville Institute site, and discover the meaning of the lyrics of this song. A song that glorified John Brown, and even likened him to Jesus Christ.
