The SCV has been charged with two tasks we take
very seriously. The first is the remembrance and to uphold the legacy
that our ancestors fought for during the Civil War. Our second charge
is to educate people about the Civil War and the reasons our ancestors
choose to defend their State and the Confederate States of America by
placing their very lives in harms way.
This section of our website contains an assortment of web pages, and
other various files that explain the Confederate Cause and why we hold
that Cause in such high esteem.
We realize that to some, some of these topics are, shall we say,
controversial. All we ask is that you take in this information with an
open mind. We invite our camp brothers to contribute to this page with
anything they may like to share. Submissions, if requested, can be
posted anonymously after approval of the club officers. Please consider

The Constitution of the Confederate States of America
The 1865 Hampton Roads Secret Peace Conference
as digitially presented by Wikisource
This is a must-read document for anyone who studies the Civil War. This
is the story of an ultra-secret peace conference, proposed by one of
Lincoln’s aides. Lincoln himself attended the conference as well
as Confederate Vice-President Alexander H. Stephens. To maintain
absolute secrecy, notes and records were forbidden, but afterwards,
Stephens wrote about it in his book “A
Constitutional View Of The Late War Between The States: Its Causes,
Character, Conduct And Results Presented In A Series Of Colloquies At
Liberty Hall”. This little known peace conference is
startling and enlightening about Lincoln’s true motives and
feelings about the war as well as emancipation of the Slaves.

T. Sherman's tactics of “scorched earth” inflicted damage on the
civilian population of Georgia. Homes and farms burned, all their
livestock stolen or shot, fields destroyed and all their belongings
destroyed or shipped north for personal gain by the Union soldiers. A
name, to this day, is still despised by Georgians and South
Carolinians. A study of Sherman's campaigns had contributed
significantly to Heinz Guderian's doctrine of Blitzkrieg and Rommel's
theory of strategy and tactics in mechanized warfare during World War
