Sons of Confederate Veterans was established in 1896 by the last remaining actual
Confederate Veterans who commissioned the SCV with the responsibility of defending the
honor of their good name and teaching future generations of Southerners of the rightness of
their Cause and presenting the true history of the South. The Georgia Division is the largest
and most active Division within the SCV and welcomes new members from all across America
who had ancestors who fought for Georgia and the Confederacy.
