The UDC says it also seeks to document the role of Southern women "during the struggle," and their "untiring efforts after the war" in reconstruction the South.
Since the Civil War, the UDC's Web site says, the organization has come "to the aid of the nation in times of crisis," citing civic service during World War I, World War II and the Korean, Vietnam and Persian Gulf wars. The organization also sponsors scholarships and awards to outstanding students at the nation's service academies and other schools.
The Guilford UDC chapter, which numbers 105 members, was founded in 1899.
The UDC is not related to the male-only Sons of Confederate Veterans.

Principal should've gathered facts first
- An editorial by Gilbert Jones
9-2-02 - Greensboro News & Record
Your story, "Aycock bars essay contest" (Aug. 28), demonstrates that cultural insensitivity is alive and well in the Guilford County school system.
I believe that she would be hard pressed to make a statement further from the facts than this. In my opinion, Harrelson is either ill-informed about the UDC or is unfamiliar with the KKK.
I appreciate Harrelson's offer to meet with the UDC to discuss future
contests. She should have met with them about this contest before
slandering them in the newspaper.

Civil War reenactor loses child custody battle
A Louisiana Brigade Chaplain, The Rev. Denver P. Hutchens, of Beauregard Camp #130, recently lost a child custody battle when he was judged to be an unfit
parent because of his membership in the Southern Confederate
Volunteers and his interest in reenacting Civil War events.
During the proceedings, the opposing counsel stressed
the fact that the couple hung a Confederate flag over their historic
bed and breakfast in Natchitoches, LA. She asked Mrs. Hutchens if she
didn't think that was a horrible example for the children. Mrs. Hutchens
said no, she didn't think it was at all. The case has been sent to the
Southern Legal Research Center in hopes of appealing this ruling.
National Heritage "OFFENSE" Chairman appointed
Ron Wilson, Commander-in-Chief, has announced his choice for Heritage Defense Chairman and committeemen. Space precludes the listing of all members, but if you know of a Heritage violation first contact Ed Butler, Tennessee Division Heritage Defense Chairman, so that he may coordinate a response through Division and International.
They are all fully prepared to do as the situation requires when informed of any disrespect shown to our mutual Confederate Heritage, up to and including kicking some butt, taking names, and then sending a bill.
Please do not hesitate to contact any of these individuals
should advice or assistance be in order.
Allen Sullivant - Chairman
