There are three membership types in the SUVCW: Member, Associate and Junior.
To be a full Member, you must be able to show that you are a descendant of a veteran (soldier, sailor, Marine, or Revenue Cutter Service) who fought for the Union between 1861 and 1865. There is also a Junior Member for boys aged 6-14.
Associate members are those who do not have a qualifying veteran ancestor, but who are interested in the Civil War and support the tenets of the SUVCW.
Please visit the SUVCW National Organization website for more information and membership application forms.
