Welcome to the Battle of Olustee, Camp 1463 Web Site! This is our first endeavor into the digital arena, and we hope you find our web site educational and informative. This web site is designed to be an ongoing, ever changing area of information. So keep checking our site as we mature in the ways of web site design, and technology.
We created this site with the primary goal of honoring the men who fought in the Confederacy during the Civil War. As some of you might know, the membership of our organization is made up of descendants of Confederate Veterans; a distinction that all of us are proud of.
As we constructed this site, we realized there were many in today's society who do not understand why we are proud of this distinction, nor why we embrace the historical past as we do. So we decided to try, with this web site, to answer the questions people about the “what we do, and why we do it?” Hopefully this will help prospective members, students doing research on the Civil War and those that might believe we have a hidden agenda.
The first section of this web site covers the historical aspect of the Civil War era starting with The SCV section of our web site. In this section we provide you with information about the history of the SCV, the SCV in today's society and the goals of the SCV.
In our Camp History section, we cover the Battle of Olustee, local stories of the Civ War and finally, the Local Veterans-Roll Call. This last section lists the names of the men who fought, and died at the Battle of Olustee. Included will be the names of local veterans who fought for the United States in the various wars since the Civil War.
For prospective members who are descendants of Confederate veterans, we provide all the information you need to become a member in the Join the SCV section. Believe it, or not there are many who are of Southern descent but have no ancestors who fought in the War, as well as individuals of Northern descent who believe in the Southern cause, who would like to be apart of the SCV. We have a program called the Legionnaire Corps for those who fit in that category and want to become full time members in our organization. This is covered in the Join the Legionnaires section. For any prospective member, genealogical help and assistance is provided in our camp as well as nation wide assistance with links provided in the Join the SCV section.
Camp meetings, directions and activities of our camp are provided in the Camp Meeting section of our site. Also, a list of Camp Officers and members are given in the Camp Members section.
As stated in the beginning, this site is an ongoing process, as well as a labor of love. Many items contained in this site will change, and some information will be added. However, our goal of providing historically accurate information, as well as the honoring of our brave Confederate ancestors will never end Enjoy - The Webmaster
