Join the Fire Eaters

Why should a Twenty-first Century man want to join an organization based on a Nineteenth Century war? We join the Sons of Confederate Veterans to preserve the honor of those who fought during the Confederate era to defend our families against an invading Northern army. We join the Edmund Ruffin Fire Eaters, Sons of Confederate Veterans, Camp 3000, to celebrate the contributions of our Confederate Veterans, to treasure our heritage, and to enlighten our fellow citizens regarding the honor and valor with which our Confederate Veterans fought.

The SCV is the direct heir of the United Confederate Veterans, and the oldest hereditary organization for male descendents of Confederate soldiers. Organized at Richmond, Virginia in 1896, the SCV continues to serve as a historical, patriotic, and non-political organization dedicated to ensuring that a true history of the 1861-1865 era is preserved.
