The Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) is the oldest hereditary organization for male descendants of Confederate soldiers. Founded in Richmond, Virginia in 1896, the SCV serves as a historical, patriotic, and non-political organization striving to preserve the true history of the events that occurred in the years 1861-1865. The members of the Robert E. Lee Camp, #239, consider themselves an historical and genealogical organization that works to honor their Confederate ancestors.
