In October of 1890, several ex-Confederates met in Fort Worth and organized the Robert E. Lee Camp #158 of the United Confederate Veterans (UCV). The primary purpose for the creation of the UCV was to garner greater recognition and support for the ex-Confederate soldiers and their families. The materials represented here are merely a sampling of the more extensive UCV resources, dating from 1861 to 1936, which are housed in the Library’s Archives. It includes descriptive lists, rosters, applications for honors, minutes, reports, correspondence, burial records and muster rolls.
The scanned images in the United Confederate Veterans Robert E. Lee Camp No. 158 Collection are made possible by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services to the Texas State Library and Archives Commission under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act. (2013)
