Colonel Hiram Parks Bell Camp #1642
Sons of Confederate Veterans

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. 

Sons of Confederate Veterans raise thousands of dollars for the preservation of the flags that these valiant men served under.

The SCV ( ) is the direct heir of the United Confederate Veterans, and the oldest hereditary organization for male descendents of Confederate soldiers. Organized at Richmond, Virginia in 1896, the SCV continues to serve as a historical, patriotic, and non-political organization dedicated to ensuring 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.


Out-manned, out-gunned, and out-supplied – but never out-fought – Confederate soldiers wrote a proud chapter in this nation’s history for independence, toughness, bravery, patriotism and Heritage of Honor.

 If you want the symbols of the Confederacy to remain a part of our cultural history, and if you are the male descendant of a Confederate soldier, then we invite you to join our cause. 

The SCV is a non-political heritage organization, not affiliated with any other group, dedicated to the preservation of the reputation of men like Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson – and your great-grandfather.
