History of the Florida Division
|The Sons of Confederate Veterans, Florida Division, was chartered in 1898 with two camps. Camp Charles C. Hemming, No. 80 in Ocala was the first, followed by Camp Stonewall Jackson No. 83 in Jacksonville. A 1915 issue of Confederate Veteran Magazine lists 30 Florida Camps in good standing as of November 15,1914. The Camps ranged from No. 83, Stonewall Jackson, in Jacksonville to No. 781, Santa Rosa, in Milton. A 1935 Annual Convention program indicates that a joint UCV/SCV Florida Division Convention was held in Bradenton. In 1972 the Florida Division, SCV had shrunk to four Camps.
Today, the Sons of Confederate Veterans, Florida Division, Inc. is a vibrant, fast-growing, non-profit corporation, consisting of over 50 camps and more than 1,300 members throughout the state of Florida. The Florida Division is involved in numerous projects throughout the state, ranging from Confederate Gravesite location and preservation to conservation of the State's Confederate Flag Collection.
On behalf of Florida Division Commander Donald Young, we the officers and men of the Florida Division, welcome you to our site.
