Administrative History

The original Sons of Confederate Veterans, Major George Washington Littlefield camp was formed in 1898, two years after the founding of the National Sons of Confederate Veterans. In 1977, the camp was re-chartered under the name Major George W. Littlefield Camp #59. The camp has grown over the years and now has over 65 members (2016). The camp is involved in re-enactments, living history demonstrations, parades, and grave marker dedications. Members of the organization are responsible for headstone cleaning and Confederate documentation in Oakwood Cemetery in Austin, Texas.


Scope and Contents

Biographical information about 235 soldiers gathered from historic newspaper articles, muster rolls, the Confederate Gray Book and genealogical websites such as Ancestry.com and Find a Grave, as well as the Confederate Graves Registry, make up the bulk of the collection.

The research was conducted in 2015 but the collection contains copies of newspaper articles and pages from books and muster rolls that were dated from the 1870s through the 1930s.
