United Daughters of the Confederacy
Albert Sidney Johnston Chapter 2060
The United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC) is the oldest patriotic lineage society in the United States. The heart of the UDC is its members, who work tirelessly to honor their Confederate ancestors through activities that fulfill the historical, educational, benevolent, memorial, and patriotic objectives of the Organization. The information provided in this section of our website briefly describes these objectives and gives explanations of key UDC terms.
HISTORICAL: Our chapters strive to preserve history, especially the period of our Southern History relating from 1855 to the present.
EDUCATIONAL: Each year awards and scholarships are presented to deserving students.
BENEVOLENT: We continue to provide aid to our Real Daughters and Real Granddaughters in need. We provide support and monetary aid to areas across the U.S. after natural disasters.
PATRIOTIC: We are the only organization ever given permission by the U.S. Government to present our Crosses of Military Service and Armed Forces awards to United States Military Veterans and Active Duty Servicemen and Women. Since the Spanish-American War we have continued to provide aid to U.S. troops both overseas and stateside. We are patriotic in our respect for the American and Confederate Flags and in our genuine love for our nation. Since it’s founding, the UDC has continued to provide aid to U.S. troops and citizens alike, during times of war and in National emergencies.
MEMORIAL: We mark and maintain graves and monuments of our ancestors who fought gallantly in the War Between the States.
Chapter Meetings are held at 11:00 am on the 3rd Thursday of the month, September through May, at the Oak Hills Country Club.
