The Officers Core included: William L. Atwood, Commander  ...

Camp Roster : 1939 - Published on March 9, 2019
...On August 18, 1939 a very interesting list was circulated that contained the names of 114 members of the Sterling Price Camp #145. It contained not only current (1939) members, but also names of those who had served in the past. Some of these men had passed away by this time, and the list is by no means complete. Included were 23 Camp #145 Commanders who had either served in the past, or would serve in the near future. Their St. Louis  addresses, and occasionally places of business were also listed. Some very notable St. Louisans will be seen on this list, such as: Edward J.

Monthly Meetings - Published on March 8, 2019

Many of our members are re-enactors , that can share their experiences at modern living-history battle reenactments that are sometimes filmed for motion film productions ("Gettysburg", etc.).       Meetings include a featured guest as well as in-house speakers (In the past we have had historia...
100 Years of Price Camp History : 1899-1999 - Published on March 8, 2019
...     We all have a natural curiosity about our past. It’s a universal trait in historical organizations such as ours. We are all enthralled and absorbed with reminiscences of the “Lost Cause”, and the impact that this watershed event had on our American culture. We all enjoy pondering how things might have been, if only a few things were changed. For instance: What if, “Stonewall” Jackson would have been at Gettysburg; or, what if....Captain Nathaniel Lyon would have stayed in Kansas where he belonged; or as Hank Williams Jr. wails..“If the South Would’a won we’d have it made!” All of these...”what ifs” are interesting to contemplate, however history is written by “what was”....not “what if&r...

Our Mission - Published on March 8, 2019
...     We hope our website is not only educational but enjoyable as well. We believe Confederate heritage is one part of America's diversity which must be preserved. This includes educating the public about the ethnic diversity that existed in the Confederate ranks. Since Confederate veterans and their descendants include individuals from all races, we invite all male descendants regardless of skin color, ethnicity, and creed to join us in protecting the memory of the Confederate soldier. We defend the right of millions of Americans to express their pride, without harassment and discrimination, regarding their national origin including that which was derived from the former Confederate States of America. The heritage of all Americans is very important and "should be r...

...     If you are a male descendant of a soldier or sailor who fought for the Confederacy, we need you to help us preserve the memory and reputation of the Confederate soldier. The motives for his suffering and sacrifice are consciously distorted by some in an attempt to alter history. Unless the descendants of Southern soldiers resist those efforts, a unique part of our nation's cultural heritage will cease to exist. Furthermore, we actively condemn racism and bigotry of all forms (including anti-Southern). We abhor the misuse and abuse of the Confederate battle flag by groups who would pervert this sacred symbol for purposes of racial supremacy or other beliefs of the political fringe. Membership is open to all male descendants regardless of ethnic ancestry, political, o...
