Welcome to the
Order of Confederat Rose

We assist the SCV with their historical, educational, benevolent and social functions. Special emphasis is placed on the preservation of Confederate symbols. As there are few rules and restrictions to stifle the creativity of our members, Upshur Patriot Rose #45 is free to focus on the activities important to our members and our local SCV Camps along with supporting their efforts on the state and national levels.

The Order of the Confederate Rose is a historical organization whose main purpose is to support the Sons of the Confederate Veterans in their service to the South.

Other functions include, but are not limited to, education, history, heritage, research, and preservation of the sacred symbols of the Confederacy and remembrance of the valiant soldiers who fought for freedom from Northern Aggressors.

The Order of the Confederate Rose is named after Rose O'Neal Greenhow (1814-1864) a brave, beautiful and successful spy who lost her life in the quest for Southern freedom. Below is a photo of Rose and her daughter while they were imprisoned in the old Capital Prison.
