The United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC) is seeking ladies in the Bland County area of Virginia to join our organization and honor their Confederate heritage.
The UDC has a long history in Virginia of working to preserve Southern history and monuments. Among the many wonderful projects these ladies perform: they mark Confederate Soldiers graves with Government Markers & Iron Crosses to signify their service in the War Between the States (WBTS), they sponsor and maintain numerous Confederate monuments throughout Virginia, and they support active duty and retired military personnel through donations, awards, and volunteer hours.
If you are descended from a Confederate soldier or sailor, or from someone who served in the Confederate government, and you are interested in becoming a member of the UDC, please contact me and I can put you in contact with the nearest chapter in your area. If you are not sure if you have a Confederate ancestor, but are interested in joining the UDC, please let me know and we can work with you to determine if you qualify for membership.
If you have a family member who was a member of the UDC or the Children of the Confederacy, we hope that you will carry on the tradition and consider joining the UDC.
Thank you for taking the time to read such a long posting. I look forward to hearing from List Members.
