Welcome to the South Carolina Division,
United Daughters of the Confederacy



A message from the South Carolina Division President,
Ann P. Shugart



Buds are bursting, and flowers are blooming. Birds are singing in the trees. Finally, spring has arrived in South Carolina. Happy spring!

District meetings have begun. Our meetings have been outstanding and attendance has been high. Chapters are reporting on activities and projects. South Carolina Division Daughters continue to do a wonderful job preserving and protecting our Southern heritage.

Confederate Memorial Day in South Carolina is May 10th. Confederate Memorial Day programs and ceremonies are being planned throughout our state. Please make plans to attend!

Our Southern history is very active and alive in South Carolina. We have historical buildings, monuments, museums, archives, and libraries. Confederate Park in Fort Mill, South Carolina, has monuments that pay tribute to the soldiers, women, Native Americans and slaves who participated in the War Between The States. Make your spring and summer plans to visit Confederate monuments, markers, museums, and libraries throughout our state and nation. Perhaps you and your family could walk a battlefield, see an exhibit, or attend a reenactment.

Our 150th commemoration of the War Between the States is coming to an end. The importance of the sesquicentennial is to give recognition to our Confederate soldiers, the War Between the States and its battlefields, and to teach the real truth and history of the War.

On April 9, 1865, General Robert E. Lee, dignified in his immaculate uniform, met with General U.S. Grant in Wilmer McLean's parlor at Appomattox Court House to discuss "Unconditional Surrender." The War Between the States was over. Lee's soldiers were told simply to go home.

Our South Carolina Division Convention will be held October 1-3, 2015, in Columbia, South Carolina. More details will be available in our SC Division Newsletter. Save the date and plan to attend!
