WITH AFFECTION, REVERENCE, AND UNDYING REMEMBRANCE
Welcome to the home of the South Carolina Division of the United Daughters of the Confederacy®
The United Daughters of the Confederacy® (UDC) is a Southern preservation heritage organization made up of the direct and collateral female descendants of the soldiers, sailors, and statesmen of the Confederate States of America (1861-1865) or those whom gave Material Aid to the Cause. Proof of ancestor’s service is required to join the UDC.
The UDC was organized by patriotic women who gave their time, their talents, and their means to serve with no thought of compensation beyond the feeling of duty well done. The General organization is divided into State Divisions, which are further subdivided into Districts and Chapters.
The UDC is the only organization to receive permission from the U.S. Government to present our Crosses of Military Service and Armed Forces awards to United States Military Veterans and Active Duty Servicemen and Women. Since the Spanish-American War, we have continued to provide aid to U.S. troops both overseas and stateside. We are patriotic in our respect to the U.S. and Confederate Flags and exhibit our genuine love for our nation. Since its founding, the UDC has continued to provide aid to U.S. troops and citizens alike, during times of war and in National emergencies.
