A Message From the Department Commander
Welcome to the official website of the Army of Northern Virginia, Sons of Confederate Veterans. The Sons of Confederate Veterans is divided into three Armies for organizational and administrative purposes. The armies are the Army of Northern Virginia, the Army of Tennessee, and the Army of Trans Mississippi. The armies are further subdivided into Divisions by state. The Army of Northern Virginia is composed of the Divisions of South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, and Europe.
The Sons of Confederate Veterans is a historic honor society composed of male descendants of Confederate Veterans. Applicants must prove their lineage prior to being accepted. Please see our national organizations website for membership applications or visit the website of the Division in the state where you reside. We welcome all of those who wish to honorably preserve the history of the Confederacy.
We are justifiably proud of the sacrifices made by the men who served in Confederate uniform when called on by their states from 1861 – 1865. We have nothing to be ashamed of and much to be proud of as descendants of the greatest citizen army to ever raise a sword in a quest for freedom.
I am proud to say “My GG Grandfather was a Confederate Veteran” and hope you will consider joining our historic honor society.
Randall B. Burbage , Commander
Army of Northern Virginia
