Welcome to our WEB Site   

 

Following the War Between the States, surviving Southern soldiers came together to form a veterans organization known as the United Confederate Veterans (UCV). The Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) is the heir to this legacy. Formed in Richmond, Virginia in 1896, the SCV continues to serve as an historical, patriotic and non-political organization dedicated to insuring that a true history of the 1861~1865 period is preserved for future generations.

Today, programs are ongoing at the national, state and local level. In Chattanooga, we take particular interest in the preservation and marking of Confederate soldier’s graves and sites of historic significance, publication of scholarly works and attendance at regular meetings to discuss the military and political history of the period.  Additionally, N. B. Forrest Camp #3 proudly cooperates with the local chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy and the City of Chattanooga in maintaining and preserving the Chattanooga Confederate Cemetery.

Being one of General Forrest's SCV Camps, we take particular pride in honoring the Army of Tennessee. Many N. B. Forrest Camp #3 members have ancestors that fought in that noble army.  It is with reverence that we proudly display those legends whose deeds are written in our history and heritage. 

 

Thank you for visiting our site. We are confident that you will find useful and interesting information. And, if you are a male aged 12 or over with Confederate ancestry, we encourage you to consider membership in the Sons of Confederate Veterans.  The link entitled MEMBERSHIP will guide you to application information,  instructions and help in tracing your Confederate ancestry.
