The General Organization of the Children of the Confederacy® (CofC) is divided into state organizations called Divisions. The Texas Division of the CofC has chapters in the
following locations. If you would like information about any of these chapters, please contact the Texas Division CofC Director,
Those eligible for active membership are boys and girls from birth to the Annual General CofC Convention after their 18th birthday who are blood descendants, lineal or
collateral, of men and women who served honorably in the Confederate Army, Navy, or Civil Service, or gave material aid to the Cause or those who are lineal or collateral
descendants of members of the United Daughters of the Confederacy whose papers are acceptable by the present requirements for membership. Adopted children are not eligible
for membership by virtue of the adoptive parents' bloodline, but solely by virtue of the natural or biological parents.
Because we desire to perpetuate, in love and honor, the heroic deeds of those who enlisted in the Confederate Services, and upheld its flag through four years of war, we,
the children of the South, have united in an Organization called the "Children of the Confederacy," in which our strength, enthusiasm and love of justice can exert
its influence. We, therefore pledge ourselves to preserve pure ideals; to honor the memory of our beloved Veterans; to study and teach the truths of history (one of the most
important of which is, that the War Between the States was not a rebellion, nor was its underlying cause to sustain slavery) and always to act in a manner that will reflect
honor upon our noble and patriotic ancestors.
