Welcome to the John
B. Ingram SCV Camp #219.
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 our America nation was built.
Today, the John B. Ingram Camp & the Sons of Confederate Veterans are
preserving the history, heritage, & legacy of these men so that future
generations can understand their reasoning for fighting.
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
Membership in the Sons of Confederate Veterans is open to all male
descendants of soldiers and sailors who served honorably in the
Confederate armed forces.
