Moses Wood Camp #125 Sons of Confederate Veterans is located in Gaffney, South Carolina and serves the Cherokee County areas of Gaffney and Blacksburg along with surronding areas. We are a part of the 3rd Brigade South Carolina Division SCV and the Army of Northern Virginia Department.
The citizen-soldier who fought for the Confederacy personified the best qualities of America. The preservation of liberty and freedom was the movitating factor in the South's decision to fight the Second American Revolution. The tenacity with which Confederate soldiers fought underscored their belief in the rights guaranteed by the Constitution. these attributes are the underpinning of our democratic society and represent the foundation on which this nation was built.
Today the Sons of Confederate Veterans is preserving the history and legacy of these heros so that the future generations can understand the motives that animated the Souther Cause.
The SCV is the direct heir of the United Confederate Veterans, and the oldest hereditary organization for male descendents of Confederate Soldiers. organized at Richmond, Virginia in 1896, the SCV continues to serve as a historical, patriotic, and non-political organization dedicated to ensuring that a true history of the 1861-1865 period is preserved.
TO YOU SONS OF CONFEDERATE VETERANS, WE SUBMIT THE VINDICATION TO THE CAUSE FOR WHICH WE FOUGHT. TO YOUR STRENGTH WILL BE GIVEN THE DEFENSE OF THE CONFEDERATE SOLDIERS GOOD NAME. THE GUARDIANSHIP OF HIS HISTORY, THE EMULATION OF HIS VIRTUES, THE PREPETUATION OF THOSE PRINCIPLES WHICH HE LOVED AND WHICH MADE HIM GLORIOUS AND WHICH YOU ALSO CHERISH.
