Military Order of the Stars and Bars
The Military Order of the Stars and Bars is a fraternal organization for documented descendants of men who served as commissioned officers in the armed forces of the Confederate States of America or who are descended from members of the Confederate Congress, or any elected or appointed member of the Executive Branch of the Confederate Government. Membership is open to males, aged 12 or older, who are direct or collateral descendants of Confederate Officers who served honorably in the Confederate military, elected or appointed civilian officials of the individual Confederate States, officials of the Confederate National government, and officials of the Five Civilized Tribes that allied with the Confederacy. Its headquarters is in White House, Tennessee. Members may join local chapters as well as state societies or be a national at-large member, with the organization working as a lineage society.
The group is related to the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV), an American lineage society for all male descendants of Confederate veterans.
