Educational Files

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 contributing to our website!

The Constitution of the Confederate States of America

The 1865 Hampton Roads Secret Peace Conference
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.

Sherman's Atlanta Campaign and March to the Sea

William 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 II.
