Welcome

 The North Carolina Order of Confederate Rose was established in 1993 for the sole purpose of assisting the North Carolina Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans with their historical, educational, benevolent and social functions. Special emphasis is placed on the preservation of Confederate symbols. As there are few rules and restrictions to stifle the creativity of its members, North Carolina chapters are free to focus on the activities important to its members and local SCV Camps along with supporting their efforts on the state and national levels.
