Mary Yates Snowden Chapter
Our chapter is the official support group for the Secession Camp #4, Sons of Confederate Veterans in Charleston, South Carolina.
Snowden Chapter proudly took its name from a prominent Charleston lady who was very active in community service before, during and after the War Between the States. We hope you will read more about the life and accomplishments of Mary Amarinthia Yates Snowden.
To join Snowden Chapter OCR, you do NOT need to have a Confederate ancestor, nor a relative in the SCV. Members of our chapter must be 18 years old or better to become members, and acquire the sponsorship and signature of an SCV member and a Snowden OCR member before being voted upon. Some of our members have relatives in other SCV camps because those camps do not have chapters yet. Some are also members of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, and some are reenactors. All have joined in the common bond of a love and respect for the Southern and Confederate Heritage.
We meet every month for a dinner meeting. If you would like to come to a meeting, we always welcome guests. Please contact our President to learn the date and location of our next meeting.
Until we can make our own Calendar of Events webpage, we will link to the Calendar on SCLA's website. Since the sites share the same webmaster, feel free to contact either webmaster edress for additions and corrections.
