About the Kentucky Division,
Sons of Confederate Veterans!
The Kentucky Division represents the 24 local units, known as Camps, that are situated across the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Those camps are organized into 7 Brigades which comprise the entire Division See Detailed Map. For more information on the entire Confederation you can go Here. Our organization is open to men aged 12 and above who prove through genealogical research a bloodline that includes a Confederate Veteran who served honorably during the period between 1861 and 1865. Our organization can assist in that research. If there was ever a time for our mission statement to be practiced- the effort to vindicate and remember that cause of the men in Gray to maintain the principles of the limited constitutional republican government of America's beginning - today is that day.Join us!
"To you, Sons of Confederate Veterans, we will commit the vindication of the cause for which we fought. To your strength will be given the defense of the Confederate soldier's good name, the guardianship of his history, the emulation of his virtues, the perpetuation of those principles which he loved and which you love also, and those ideals which made him glorious and which you also cherish."
Lt. General Stephen Dill Lee,
Commander General, United Confederate Veterans,
New Orleans, Louisiana, 25 April 1906

Jefferson Davis On The War
"We feel that our cause is just and holy; we protest solemnly in the face of mankind that we desire peace at any sacrifice save that of honour and independence; we ask no conquest, no aggrandizement, no
concession of any kind from the States with which we were lately confederated; all we ask is to be let alone; that those who never held power over us shall not now attempt our subjugation by arms."
President Jefferson Davis
29 April, 1861
