Starting with tomorrow’s Civil War Saturday post I’m going to run a short series of articles on Civil War heritage groups. Groups like Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV), Sons of Union Veterans (SUV), United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC), Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War (DUVCW), LGAR, Women’s Relief Corps (WRC), etc.
My aim is to let people know they exist and how to join them. The first three groups to be highlighted are Sons of Confederate Veterans, Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War and United Daughters of the Confederacy. The SCV post will publish tomorrow.
If you’re a member of a Civil War heritage group not mentioned and would like to write a post about your organization contact me. I’d love to include any and all groups with roots dating back to the Civil War. I’ve already received a couple comments that folks weren’t aware these groups exist. Who knows your group may gain some new members!
Be sure to stop back for Civil War Saturday and we’ll see how the Civil War impacts lives today
P.S. I still need a post from a Son of Union Veterans! Can you help a girl out?
