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.


"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."

May 4, 2024:  3rd Annual Memorial Day Service
The Isle of Wight Avengers Camp celebrated the Confederate Monument to our Confederate dead.

The monument dedicated to those Confederate soldiers who died for the Cause.

 Randy and Karen Grigg provided the music at the beginning of today's Memorial event.

Cdr. Ed Whitley welcomed all guests and Camp members and called for the presentation of colors by the Tom Smith (Camp #1702) Memorial Guard.


Chaplain Tom Conley gave the Invocation and Cdr. Tim Houde did an excellent job of reciting the Charge by Stephen Dill Lee.

5th Brigade Cdr. Brandon Dorsey was our featured guest speaker. He spoke about the institution of slavery and early efforts to prevent it which have eliminated the eventual need for secession.
His talked included the Founding Fathers, the Declaration of Independence, and laws aimed at preventing slavery on our continent.
Cdr. Whitley presented him with a framed picture of Stonewall Jackson.

Various SCV Camps and ladies' organizations (pictured is the Smithfield Chapter, U.DC.) presented wreaths at the Monument in honor of the Confederate dead.

The Memorial Guard fired 3 vollies with amazing precision.

Karen and Randy provided more music, including the singing of "Dixie", and Chaplain Tom Conley gave the Benediction.

The Memorial Guard respecfully retired the Colors, after which everyone was invited to a lunch including barbeque, chicken, and so many other "goodies".

I salute the Flag of Virginia with reverence
and patriotic devotion to the "Mother of
States and Statesmen" which it represents -
the "Old Dominion" where Liberty and
Independence were born.

-- Written by Mrs. Cassye Gravely, UDC


I salute the Confederate flag with affection,
reverence and undying devotion to the
cause for which it stands.  Amen.
