South Carolina Military Order of the Stars and Bars honors the
Confederate Officer Corps and the government officials of the
Confederacy. Our members are all lineal or collateral descendants
from these two groups.
We are loyal Americans whose mission is to honor our ancestors and
our Southern heritage, defend the U. S. Constitution, and promote
the well-being of South Carolinians..
are proud that the National Order was founded on August 30, 1938,
at Columbia, South Carolina. Fifteen former Confederate officers,
as well as sons and grandsons of other Confederate Officers were
present. Included in the latter group were the descendants of
Robert E. Lee.
