OUR MISSION STATEMENT:
Our shared southern heritage and history are a record of who and what we are. Sadly, though, most times we lose these treasures, not by fire, flood, or simple neglect; but to willful destruction by those that wish to perpetuate a false narrative. History is not something obscure or unimportant. As Sons of Confederate Veterans, our cause is rooted in the virtues of the southern soldier - honor, integrity, righteousness, faith, and freedom. We serve to commemorate and preserve the memory of the Confederate soldiers that fought to defend their homes during the War of Northern Aggression of 1861-1865 and are dedicated to ensuring the true history, flags, & sacred symbols of the Confederacy are preserved. To never allow the ravages of an era that would see them canceled and forgotten.
