Williamson County Grays, Sons of Confederate Veterans, Camp 502, Georgetown, Texas

Welcome

The mission of our organization is to honor our Confederate forefathers who served in the War for Southern Independence and faithfully practice The Charge as laid out for us by Lt. General Stephen D. Lee (CSA). We do this by active participation in community events and educational programs.

The Sons of Confederate Veterans are direct descendants of the United Confederate Veterans(UCV), a voluntary organization of the veterans who fought so gallantly for the Confederacy during its existence(1861-1865). The SCV was organized in Richmond, Virginia in 1896 at the convention of the UCV. Initially the SCV was charged with two duties:

(1) to assist the elderly members at their conventions and other activities,

(2) to ensure the true history of the Confederacy and the struggles be accurately documented.

The SCV continues to exist and grow as an historical, patriotic, and non-political organization dedicated to ensuring that the true history of the 1861-1865 period is preserved. It is driven by The Charge given to the SCV by Lt. General Stephen D. Lee

The 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, 25 April 1906
