Our Mission

        We hope our website is not only educational but enjoyable as well. We believe Confederate heritage is one part of America's diversity which must be preserved. This includes educating the public about the ethnic diversity that existed in the Confederate ranks. Since Confederate veterans and their descendants include individuals from all races, we invite all male descendants regardless of skin color, ethnicity, and creed to join us in protecting the memory of the Confederate soldier. We defend the right of millions of Americans to express their pride, without harassment and discrimination, regarding their national origin including that which was derived from the former Confederate States of America. The heritage of all Americans is very important and "should be recognized and respected." We reject the abhorrent doctrines of the "Klan" and their defilement of the Confederate flag for the purpose of racial hatred. They "no more represent the flag's true symbolism than that their defiling of the cross represents Christianity."

       The citizen-soldiers who fought for the Confederacy personified the best qualities of America. The preservation of liberty and freedom was the motivating factor in the South's decision to fight the Second American Revolution. The tenacity with which Confederate soldiers fought underscored their belief in the rights guaranteed by the Constitution. These attributes are the underpinning of our democratic society and represent the foundation on which this nation was built.

       Today, the Sons of Confederate Veterans is preserving the history and legacy of these heroes, so future generations can understand the motives that animated the Southern Cause. 

Charge to the Sons of Confederate Veterans


"To you, Sons of Confederate Veterans, we submit the vindication of the Cause for which we fought; to your strength will 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 principles 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, United Confederate Veterans, New Orleans, Louisiana, 1906
