Our camp was originally organized on 7 May 1901 in Erin, Tennessee.  On 19 February 2003 it was reorganized at the Stewart County Public Library in Dover, Tennessee.  Our camp’s goal is to educate and promote the rich history of our community and the role it played during those dark years known as The War Between The States.


We meet on the 2nd Tuesday night of each month, 7:00 PM, at Stewart County Public Library located at the corner of Spring Street/SR Hwy. 49 and Natcor Drive.  All are welcome to attend.




The Sons of Confederate Veterans was founded in 1896 at Richmond , Virginia as the direct heir to the United Confederate Veterans, making the S.C.V. the oldest hereditary organization for male descendants of Confederate soldiers. Since it's founding, the S.C.V. has functioned as a historical, patriotic, and non-political organization dedicated to insuring that the true history of the 1861 - 1965 period is preserved.

Membership in the S.C.V. is open to all male descendants of any veteran who served honorably in the Confederate armed forces. Membership can be obtained through either direct or collateral family lines and kinship to a veteran must be documented genealogically. The minimum age for membership is 12. The S.C.V. has a network of genealogists available to assist you in tracing your Confederate ancestors service.

The S.C.V. has several ongoing programs at the national, state and local level to benefit the community such as: Preservation work, Scholarly publications, Scholarship programs, Medical research grants and historical reenactments.

At the heart of the S.C.V. is our International Headquarters in Columbia, Tennessee. This historic antebellum mansion serves as the base of operations for our organization and provides meeting and conference space for several groups within the community. The mansion contains a museum and gift shop which are open for the general public as well as members of the organization. The mansion is available for weddings and special functions also.
