It received its Charter on January 21, 1974. Meetings are held on the Fourth Saturday of the Month. We subscribe to the UDC Motto, "Think, Love, Pray, Dare, Live. Our Chapter motto is "Scientia est potentia."

Our Namesake

The Belle Boyd Chapter was named after Confederate spy Belle Boyd who helped Stonewall Jackson defeat the Union Army. When Jackson was advancing on the Union Army at Front Royal, Belle learned that the federal army planned to burn the bridges. So she donned her white sunbonnet and ran across the battlefield, to warn Jackson. The bridges were saved and Belle Boyd became notorious. In later years, Belle was a popular speaker at Grand Army of the Republic halls; she promoted unity, and ended her talks with "One God, one people, one flag -- forever".

Our Mission

    The Mission of our Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy is to honor the memory of those who served and those who fell in the service of the Confederate States of America; to protect, preserve and mark the places made historic by Confederate valor; to collect and preserve the material for a truthful history of the War Between the States; to record the part taken by Southern women in patient endurance of hardship and patriotic devotion during the struggle, and in untiring efforts after the War during the reconstruction of the South; to fulfill the sacred duty of benevolence toward the survivors and toward those dependent upon them; to meet monthly for fellowship and a potluck luncheon at the lovely home of one of our members, or, better yet, indulge in the delicacies at a nearby tearoom.
