Confederate Secret Service Camp 1710, S.C.V.
Join the Sons of Confederate Veterans


Welcome to the Confederate Territory of Arizona!
The Confederate Secret Service Camp 1710 of the Sons of Confederate Veterans is located in Cochise County in Southeastern Arizona.  It is headquartered in Sierra Vista, home of Fort Huachuca, the US Army Intelligence Center, an active Army post since 1877.
The Camp was chartered on 6 April 1995.  The charter members chose to name the Camp after the intelligence organization of the Confederacy.  Nearly all the charter members were active duty or retired Military Intelligence soldiers (including one Naval Intelligence sailor).  The Confederate Secret Service was the forerunner of modern intelligence gathering agencies.  It not only included espionage agents in the "Secret Line"--agents and couriers bringing information from the North to Richmond-- but was responsible for tactical intelligence operations, the development of weapons (the Torpedo Bureau) and the procurement of weapons and warships abroad.
The Camp's logo is the Confederate Secret Service's cipher disk, a device that enabled the encoding and decoding of documents and messages.  The disk was developed by a French cryptographer, Blaise de Vigenere and used 26 shifting alphabets and a key phrase to accomplish encryption.  The disk was used in all theaters of operations throughout the war.



Today's politically correct crowd says that Confederate soldiers were traitors.  We see it differently.  Outmanned and outsupplied--but never outfought--Confederates battled against a homeland invasion and set new standards for bravery, patriotism and honor.

If you want Confederate history and symbols to remain a part of our culture and you are a male descendant of a Confederate soldier, sailor or Marine, we invite you to join us.  Founded in 1896 in Richmond, Virginia, the S.C.V. is a non-political heritage organization dedicated to preserving the reputation of men like Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson--and your great-grandfather!
