Children of the Confederacy® Creed
Because we desire to perpetuate, in love and honor, the heroic deeds of those who enlisted in the Confederate Services, and upheld its flag through four years of war, we, the children of the South, have united in an Organization called the "Children of the Confederacy," in which our strength, enthusiasm and love of justice can exert its influence.
We, therefore pledge ourselves to preserve pure ideas; to honor the memory of our beloved Veterans; to study and teach the truths of history (one of the most important of which is, that the War Between the States was not a rebellion, nor was its underlying cause to sustain slavery). and always to act in a manner that will reflect honor upon our noble and patriotic ancestors.


Our Objectives
Historical, Benevolent, Educational, Patriotic and Memorial


Eligibility
All unmarried children, eighteen years of age and under, having a lineal or collateral ancestor
who served the Confederacy honorably.
