Graves Registration Program

The International Headquarters of the Sons of Confederate Veterans has instituted a graves registration program. The intent of this program is to register all the confederate veterans’ graves wherever they may located. This is an exhaustive process which requires proof that any particular grave actually contains the remains of a Confederate Soldier. It is particularly difficult in the Arizona Territory because there are very few “Native Sons.” However, Camp 1202 has implemented the program within the Pima County area and it remains ongoing.  

 

As a consequence of the Graves Registration Program several graves have been located which did not have proper markers or were not marked at all. Camp 1202 has acquired, through the Veterans Administration, and had installed new VA markers for the unmarked graves. We have the distinction of having installed the first VA markers in “The Old Pueblo.”
