We of the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) who ride motorcycles have banded
together into a special interest group within the organization. Members of the SCV are
most welcome and encouraged to join even if they do not have a motorcycle
(dismounted cavalry) at the time of submitting the SCV Mechanized Cavalry Membership
Application.We currently have one annual national meet, around the second week of June,
which rotates to each host state each year. Members living near each other are encouraged to
gather on a more frequent basis to attend camp meetings, dedications, re-enactments,
and other SCV and UDC events together. Even rides for fun are good to hone the
skills and fellowship of the South's new Mechanized Cavalry! We have "Back Patches" that
you may wear, if you wish, at appropriate places and times. Had the motorcycle been in
existence during the War Between the States our ancestors would certainly have utilized that
mode of transportation. We are then the present day mechanized cavalry, Confederate States
of America, on-going.There is a one time application fee of $100.00 to cover an attractive
back patch. This fee also helps us pay for the expenses of the group and membership activities.
There are currently no annual dues or fees. We are a Heritage group. We are not a motorcycle club. We follow a set of standing orders necessary to uphold the ethics and values of our organization.
