United Daughters of the Confederacy

Knoxville has its own chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy!  Chapter 89 was organized November 16, 1896.  Our goal is to honor our Confederate ancestors and keep their history alive.  To that end, we are always looking for new members (yes, that means you)!  We are open to all female descendants (either direct lineal or collateral) of Confederate Veterans or those who gave material aid to the Confederacy.  Many people are pleasantly surprised to find out they have Confederate kin after tracing their genealogy on websites like. Ancestry.com. Rediscovering your family is easier than ever! 

Our goals as follows:

  1. To honor the memory of those who served and those who fell in the service of the Confederate States.

  2. To protect, preserve and mark the places made historic by Confederate valor.

  3. To collect and preserve the material for a truthful history of the War Between the States.

  4. To record the part taken by Southern women in patient endurance of hardship and patriotic devotion during the struggle and in untiring efforts after the War during the reconstruction of the South.

  5. To fulfill the sacred duty of benevolence toward the survivors and toward those dependent upon them.

  6. To assist descendants of worthy Confederates in securing proper education.

  7. To cherish the ties of friendship among the members of the Organization.
