The SCV is the direct heir of the United Confederate Veterans, and the oldest hereditary organization for male descendants of Confederate soldiers. Organized at Richmond, Virginia in 1896, the SCV continues to serve as a historical, patriotic, and non-political organization dedicated to insuring that a true history of the 1861-1865 period is preserved. Our camp is named after a Hawaiian Confederate to honor the service of the brave Hawaiians who took up arms to defend their Country, their 'Aina & Moana, their history, their way of life. The Hawaiians comprised 10% of the crew of the warship C.S.S. Shenandoah which annihilated the U.S. whaling fleet in the Pacific, saving vast numbers and species of whales, and weakened the ongoing economic attack on Hawaii waged by Northern interests at the time. Other Hawaiians served elsewhere in the Confederate Armies and Navy.
Our State Flag. The Kingdom of Hawaii declared Neutrality in the WBTS.
The Confederate Second National Flag. This is the flag that flew over the C.S.S. Shenandoah and the Hawaiians who crewed her.
The Kanaka Maoli Flag. From a description of King Kamehameha the Great's Flag that flew over Fort Honolulu during his reign, it was resurrected by Uncle Louis 'Buzzy' Agard during his tenure at UH in the 1970s and flies today over Hawaiian Kanaka Maoli.
