SCV Camp 2244 of Nampa, Idaho, held a recruiting event at the Eagle Island War Between the States Reenactment on April 30th, 2016. They passed out numerous applications to join and were exceptionally well received by visitors and reenactors. There were a few people who will definitely be joining their Camp. This was the Camp’s first significant recruiting event. They are planning on being in a local parade this spring.
Keep up the great work brothers!

The Southern Poverty Law Center aka SPLC, is taking their quest to eradicate all things Confederate to a whole new level. They are currently organizing rallies, workshops and legal battles against anything Confederate related. It is exceptionally obvious that they are directly attacking what we stand for as members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans.
They have come up with a comprehensive game plan to take on our members. This plan includes talking points and responses to our usual answers regarding Confederate history and heritage. What we need to do is educate ourselves and be ready to take them on. The following link will send you to the SPLC’s website, where they have a detailed game plan on how to take us on. SPLC Website. We all must read this information and ready ourselves for the upcoming battles we will face.
