Becoming an SCV Member
Application for membership in the Sons of Confederate Veterans is based upon identification and establishment of your relationship to your Confederate ancestor. You will need his name, unit, state of service, and information as to his honorable service (killed/wounded/captured/discharged). The more you know about your ancestor, the more likely you are to find his records and supporting information. You will very likely find the search is easier than you think, and it will be a most rewarding and moving personal experience.
The Texas Division is composed of over 100 individual chapters, called "Camps", which are located throughout the state. For information about the Camp nearest you, please click here.
Benefits of membership include participation in local, state, and national events, a membership certificate, and a subscription to Confederate Veteran magazine, published 6 times a year. Best of all, you'll be helping to preserve the honorable memory of the Confederate fighting man.
Application for membership is best accomplished through a local SCV Camp in your area. If you are not a resident of Texas, please contact the International SCV Headquarters for assistance. You may call toll free at 1-800-MY SOUTH.
