Fort Blakeley Camp #1864, Sons of Confederate Veterans is based in Baldwin County, Alabama. As the name implies, the SCV is made up of living descendants of the soldiers and civil servants of the Confederate States of America. If you live in the South, it's very likely that one or more of your ancestors fought in the War for Southern Independence or at the bare minimum were affected by it. We study and promote the true history of the Confederate States of America and of the men and women who sacrificed their all in a struggle for what was their constitutional right as citizens of sovereign states - freedom and independence from what even then was in their view a Federal Government out of control and for their very right to exist as a nation.

cannonSCV Charge To you, Sons of Confederate Veterans, we will commit the vindication of the cause for which we fought. To your strength will be given the defense of the Confederate soldier's good name, the guardianship of his history, the emulation of his virtues, the perpetuation of those principles which he loved and which you love also, and those ideals which made him glorious and which you also cherish." -Lt. Gen. Stephen Dill Lee, Commander General, United Confederate Veterans, Apr. 15, 1906

graveGrave SearchOur grave finder searches through the Sons of Confederate Veterans database, the Veteran Affairs database, and Find-a-Grave to help find information on a person all in one place. It might give you the grave location information, soldier information, gravesite pictures, or more. It can be of excellent help with ancestral research. Note: If it finds too many entries, your may not be listed and more information may be needed to narrow search. If search returns too little data, try a more broad search. Remember, some soldiers may have only been recorded with first or first and middle initials instead of names. Try it here.
