Brig. Gen. Richard Montgomery Gano
We are a Southern heritage preservation organization for all male descendants of Confederate Veterans. We are a unreconstructed camp that follows the Charge given to us by Stephen D. Lee and we forward the colors of our ancestors. Founded in 2017 to provide a presence where the Denton, Tarrant and Dallas county lines meet for the Sons of Confederate Veterans. We are one of the most active camps in the North Texas area and we are perfectly in between Dallas, Denton and Ft Worth.
Charge to the Sons of Confederate Veterans:
"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. Remember, it is your duty to see that the true history of the South is presented to future generations."
Lt. General Stephen Dill Lee, Commander General, United Confederate Veterans, New Orleans, Louisiana, April 25, 1906.

Membership in the Sons of Confederate Veterans is open to all male descendants of any veteran who served honorably in the Confederate armed forces. Membership can be obtained through either direct or collateral family lines and kinship to a veteran must be documented genealogically. The minimum age for membership is 12.
Proof of kinship to a Confederate soldier can take many forms. The easiest method is to contact the archives of the state from which the soldier fought and obtain a copy of the veteran's military service record. All Southern state's archives have microfilm records of the soldiers who fought from that state, and a copy of the information can be obtained for a nominal fee. In addition, the former Confederate states awarded pensions to veterans and their widows. All of these records contain a wealth of information that can be used to document military service.
Our camp has a free genealogist that will help you finish any research you have started and help find your Confederate ancestor. Contact us below or show up at one of our meeting on the second Tuesday of every month at historic Willhoite's 432 S Main St, Grapevine, TX 76051.

Until we meet again, let us remember our obligations to our forefathers, who gave us the undeniable birthright of our Southern Heritage and the vision, desire and courage to see it perpetuated.
