• Greetings and welcome to our web site. The members of our organization are a brotherhood of descendants from soldiers who honorably fought for the South during the War for Southern Independence, also known by some as The American "Civil War." The purpose of our organization is to promote, preserve and defend the Confederate soldier and the Cause for which he fought. We accomplish our goals in numerous ways to include cultural and historical educational programs, institutional funding, the preservation of historical artifacts, the maintenance of Confederate monuments and cemeteries, plus involvement with historical battlefield reenactments and living histories.

    Chances are, if you and/or your family are from the South, you may have a Confederate soldier as an ancestor. We cordially invite you to find one of our meeting places, listed on this website, to allow us to help you make the connection. Most meetings start with a meal, have an informative historical presentation, and end with a short discussion on service projects, fund raising, and planning. Please consider this as an invitation, from me, as my personal guest.

    For the South,

    Thomas Smith, Commander
    NC Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans
