Welcome to the home page for the Isaac Newton Turner Camp 1275! We hope you take a few moments to scroll through our pages to see what our camp has to offer. Our Camp meets at 10:00 A.M. the second Saturday of each month at the Livingston Municipal Library at 707 North Tyler Avenue.
The Sons of Confederate Veterans is an organization preserving the history and legacy of Confederate Heroes, so future generations may understand the motives that galvanized the Southern Cause. The SCV is the direct successor of the United Confederate Veterans, and the oldest hereditary organization for male descendants of Confederate Soldiers. Organized at Richmond, Virginia, in 1986, 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. Membership in the Sons of Confederate Veterans is open to all male descendants of any veteran who served honorably in the Confederate armed forces.
Membership can be obtained through either direct or collateral family lines and kinship to a veteran must be documented genealogically. The minimum age for membership is 12. If you are interested in perpetuating the ideals that motivated your Confederate ancestor, the SCV needs you. The memory and reputation of the Confederate soldier, as well as the motives for his suffering and sacrifice, are being consciously distorted by some in an attempt to alter history. A unique part of our nation's cultural heritage will cease to exist unless the descendants of Southern soldiers resist those efforts.
If you have a Confederate ancestor, and are interested in becoming a member of or any SCV Camp please contact us. If you are unsure if you had a Confederate ancestor or not, but are interested, let us help you do the research and find out if you have one.

The Sons of Confederate Veterans is not a hate group. The SCV does not knowingly allow anyone with ties to hate groups to join and has removed, and will remove, anyone from its ranks who expresses racist sentiments. Specifically, the following is not allowed and will be grounds for immediate dismissal: -Attempting to recruit fellow SCV members for racist groups -Disseminating racist literature to fellow SCV members, either through mailings or in person.
ALL MEMBERS MUST BE AWARE OF THESE RESTRICTIONS, AS THEY WILL BE RIGOROUSLY ENFORCED.
Loving the South and defending its culture, symbols and heritage does not mean hate. In fact, many SCV members are descendants of African-American, Catholic, Jewish, Native American, Hispanic and Asian Confederates. The contributions of these groups to Southern culture have made it a beautiful and unique region. To deny their descendants membership in our organization would betray our principles and the very ancestors we honor. We welcome all descendants of Confederate soldiers, sailors, and marines or those who materially aided the South in its struggle for independence.
