The Isle of Wight Avengers is a proud Camp in the Sons of Confederate Veterans.  

We meet on the 1st Tuesday of
each month at 6:30 at the Carrollton Ruritan Club.
See our Calendar below. 

 

"He who forgets his ancestors is unworthy
to be remembered by his descendants!"

 

 

Our purpose is to fulfill the
Charge to the Sons of Confederate Veterans:

"To you, Sons of Confederate Veterans, we submit the vindication of the Cause for which we fought;
to your strength will be given the defense of the Confederate soldier's good name, the guardianship
of his history, the emulation of his virtues, the perpetuation of those principles he loved
and which made him glorious and which you also cherish. Remember, it is your duty to see that
the true history of the South is presented to future generations."
