SONS OF CONFEDERATE VETERANS
Welcome to the official home of THE ILLINOIS DIVISION, Sons of Confederate Veterans. We are glad you are here. Inside this site you will find a list of Sons of Confederate Veterans (S.C.V.) camps within the State of Illinois. You will also find links to the International Headquarters, as well as, the Army of Tennessee websites. They are full of information about us and our organization, goals, and on-going projects. The Sons of Confederate Veterans is a historical lineage society that is proud of it's Southern Heritage. All members of the S.C.V. have to provide proof that their ancestor fought for the Confederate States of America armed forces between 1861-1865. We condemn in the strongest terms possible the misuse of our sacred battle flag by any and all groups who use it to promote hate and violence, and promote themselves and their cause by displaying the Confederate Battle flag. We view this as staining the memory of our ancestor's honorable service to the South in her War for Independence. So please stay awhile and have a look around.
"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. General Stephen Dill Lee, Commander General, United Confederate Veterans, New Orleans, Louisiana, 25 April, 1906
