How to Join

When you join the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, you enter a network of more than 6,000 men who form lifelong bonds, honor their heroic ancestors, and promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism in their communities. There are hereditary members, who trace their lineage to those who served honorably in the Civil War, and associate members, who do not have the requisite ancestry but wish to join the fraternity. Each is described in greater detail below.

Men and juniors in the State of Oklahoma interested in joining the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War should connect with the Department of Oklahoma or one of the local Camps, as this will greatly accelerate the application process. Camps in the Department of Oklahoma are listed in the footer of all pages on this website. We currently have 3 Camps within the Department
