" 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!"
                                                                            General Stephen Dill Lee
  The Sons of Confederate Veterans organization(SCV) is a direct desendant of the United Confederate Veterans(UCV),a voluntary organization of many of the veterans who fought so gallantly for the Confederacy during its brief existence(1861-1865).The SCV was organized at Richmond,Virginia in 1896 at the Convention of the UCV.Initially, the SCV was charged with two duties.These were(1) assisting the UCV and its elderly members at thier conventions and other activities and (2) ensuring that the true history of the Cofederacy and its struggle be accurately documented. 
    The SCV continues to exist and grow as an historical,patriotic and non-political organization dedicated to ensuring that a true history of the 1861-1865 period is preserved.
     Membership is open to all male desendants(direct or collateral) of any person who served honorably in the Cofederate armed forces.The SCV is not affiliated with any organization other than the Military Order of Stars and Bars(MOSB),an organization of male desendants of Confederate officers and members of the civil  government.
   In September 1861,one hundred thirty Moore County patriots formed Company C of the 35th Infantry Regiment,North Carolina State Troops to help defend their homes and new country against an invading army. They called themselves"Scotch Riflemen"to reflect their status as infantrymen and as desendants of 18th century Scottish settlers.
   They,along with 1100 other citizen-soldiers of Moore County,would serve the cause of Southern Independance by fighting for the Confederate States of America during the War Between The States.
    To honor their sacrifice,twelve charter members of the Scotch Riflemen Camp # 2001,Sons of Confederate Veterans held their first meeting on November 14,2002 at the McDuffie American Legion Post near West End,North Carolina. Today,membership in the Scotch Riflemen Camp affords the opportunity to serve the community and honor our Confederate ancestors through historic and civic activities.The camp supports a mission of promoting the history of the Confederacy and promoting the legacy and good name of the Confederate soldier.
     Do you have an ancestor who served in the Cofederate army,navy,marines or government?If the answer is yes,contact us today.You may be elegible for membership in the Scotch Riflemen Camp,Sons of Confederate Veterans- truly a Heritage of Honor.
