Charge to the Sons of Confederate Veterans
"To you, Sons of Confederate Veterans, we submit the vindication of the Cause for which we fought; to your strength will be given the defense of the Confederate soldier's good name, the guardianship of his history, the emulation of his virtues, the perpetuation of those principles he loved and which made him glorious and which you also cherish. Remember, it is your duty to see that the true history of the South is presented to future generations."
Lt. General Stephen Dill Lee, Commander General
United Confederate Veterans
New Orleans, Louisiana 1906
The SCV rejects any person or group whose actions tarnish or bring dishonor upon the Confederate soldier or his reason for fighting.
This particularly applies to those groups and persons using our cherished flag as a symbol for their own dishonorable purposes.
The Kirby Smithís main purpose is to maintain and defend Confederate Heritage and perpetuate the memory of the Southern Confederate soldiers who fought during the War Between the States (1861-1865). The Camp is strictly a patriotic, historical, educational, benevolent, non-political, and non-sectarian entity bound by its by-laws and governed by the Sons of Confederate Veterans Constitution. Membership is open to any male 12 years of age and older who can show descendants (Collateral or Lineal) from a Confederate Soldier who served honorably. If these attributes and ideals appeal to you, we encourage you to be a part of us. To obtain an application for membership to the Kirby-Smith Camp #1209 contact our Commander C. J. Hart at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 904 904-730-0343 or Recruiting Officer David Nelson 904 -730-8932.

Kirby-Smith Camp #1209 Educational Exhibits
Kirby-Smith has added another weapon to it's arsenal is the replica of the
confederate submarine the H.L. Hunley . It was completed after long months
of fabrication by many camp members and we were honored to have the Hunley
featured as a cover article in the Florida Times Union newspaper on Veterans
day. The inaugural voyage of the H.L. Hunley was the 2012 Jacksonville Veterans'
Day Parade. The Hunley will see service in many events and be an important
part of your campís commitment to public education on Confederate History and
the sacrifices of our gallant ancestors.
There has already been several requests for itís appearance and the
recruitment opportunities that it will provide camp 1209 will be endless.

Capt. Bryan's Confederate Observation Balloon
Kirby-Smith Camp #1209 has a new exhibit that will be part of its educational displays. The Confederate Observation Balloon represents Capt. John Randolph Bryan's balloon while attached to Gen. J. B. Magruder's headquarters before Yorktown. His trips in the balloon were one of the most unique experiences of the War Between the States, as it was doubtless the first time a balloon was used by the Confederate Forces in order to ascertain the position and strength of the Union forces. It will add to the interest of this story to know that at the time Captain Bryan was making his ascensions from the Confederate lines Gen. Fitz John Porter was performing the same service for the Union army which lay facing the Confederates.
