Our Mission

Col. Isaac Williams Smith Camp 458

Sons of Confederate Veterans

Our main mission way out here in the Pacific Northwest is honoring our Confederate ancestors and of course that means actively preserving our Southern history and heritage.  We do this in many ways: By preserving historical artifacts, creating fitting memorials, documenting our ancestor's stories, educating the public, and most importantly by locating Confederate veterans buried in Oregon and ensuring that they are properly recognized for their noble service.

If you are descended from a Confederate soldier, sailor, or marine and wish to honor and strengthen these noble American traditions, then join with us in the Sons of Confederate Veterans!  Together we will defend the Confederate soldier's good name, his cause and his symbols, and see that future generations are taught the true history of the South.

The Sons of Confederate Veterans does not condone, allow, or accept racism in any form, nor are we aligned or allied with any hate groups of any kind.  The Confederate Army and Navy included members of all races and ethnicities, including thousands of African-Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, and even some Asians.  To better understand the purpose and objectives of the Sons of Confederate Veterans and Camp 458, please examine this website, review our official Camp Constitution and By-Laws here, attend our meetings, or drop us a line.
