Printed By: Bureau of Engraving and Printing

Although federal law prohibited “rebel” societies until 1878, several small Confederate veterans groups organized in the wake of the Civil War. On June 10, 1889, their representatives assembled in New Orleans and formed the United Confederate Veterans. Its constitution declared the organization’s purpose as “strictly social, literary, historical, and benevolent.”
 
The first reunion of the United Confederate Veterans was held in Chattanooga, Tennessee, on June 3-5, 1890. Invitations were extended to veterans of both the Confederate and Union armies as well as the general public. The annual reunions were very popular, and attracted nearly one hundred thousand veterans and onlookers.
 
Membership of the United Confederate Veterans peaked in the early 1900s and began to decline as eligible veterans passed away. The last reunion was held in Norfolk, Virginia, in 1951.
