Following the War Between the States, the surviving Southern soldiers came together to form a veterans organization known as the United Confederate Veterans (UCV). The Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) is the heir to this legacy.

Formed in Richmond, VA in 1896, the SCV continues to serve as an historical, patriotic and non-political organization dedicated to insuring that an accurate history of the 1861-1865 period is preserved for future generations. The SCV operates at a national (SCV), state (Division), and local (Camp) level.

In Kentucky, we take particular interest in the preservation and marking of Confederate soldier's graves and sites of historic significance, publication of scholarly works, and attendance at regular meetings to discuss the military and political history of the period. Also, and perhaps most importantly, Kentucky SCV members are at the forefront of the fight to preserve the honor of the Confederate Soldier.

The SCV rejects any person or group whose actions tarnish or bring dishonor upon the Confederate soldier or his reason for fighting. This particularly applies to those groups and persons using the Confederate flag as a symbol for dishonorable purposes.


Confederate flags

Perhaps our reason for honoring and remembering can best be stated by the words of those we seek to honor:

"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. Genl. Stephen D. Lee, CSA, Commander, United Confederate Veterans, 1906.


Application for membership in the SCV is based upon identification and establishment of your relationship to your Confederate ancestor. You will need his name, unit/state of service, and information as to his honorable service (killed/wounded/captured/discharged). The more you know about your ancestor, the more likely you are to find his records and supporting information. You will very likely find the search is easier than you think, and will be a most rewarding and moving personal experience. Membership application is best accomplished through a local SCV Camp in your area. To assist you in this, a list of Kentucky Camps is provided elsewhere on this Web Page. If you are not a resident of Kentucky, please contact the International SCV HQ for assistance. Call 1-800-MY DIXIE or 1-800-MY SOUTH for recruiting assistance only.
