American Westerners and Southerners are spiritual mates. Westerners are fine folks. Real agrarianism, no factories, no rush. Dislike of East. Great interest in South. -- Allen Tate, 1936
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, 1906
The righteous are bold as a lion.
-- Proverbs 28:1
Welcome to the web page of SCV Camp 676 in Denver. What? You didn't know the Sons of Confederate Veterans existed in Colorado? Well, come join us for some good ol' Southern hospitality -- Western style! Our meetings - which run about an hour and a half - consist of very brief camp business; there follows fun, fellowship, open forum, trivia and a presentation related to Southern history and heritage. We meet the second Tuesday, every other month in Lakewood (near Alameda Ave. and Wadsworth). Our next meeting is July 12th. Please contact us for more information.
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 lineal or collateral family lines and kinship to a veteran must be documented genealogically. The minimum age for full membership is 12, but there is no minimum for Cadet membership. Associate memberships are available for people who cannot qualify for membership in the SCV, but still have an interest in Confederate history and want to participate in the activities of the camp.
If you are in the Denver metro area and are interested in joining or merely investigating the possibility of joining our camp, please send us your information through the "Contact" page.
