"Life has always been a small matter with me when duty points the way." - General Patrick Cleburne
This is the official site and home of the Sons of Confederate Veterans Louisiana Mechanized Cavalry, 1st Battalion, Company B. The SCV LA MECH CAV is first and foremost members in "good standing" of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. The Sons of Confederate Veterans Mechanized Cavalry (SCV-CAV) is made up of members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans with the desire to find other like-minded persons who share their passion for motorcycles and their Confederate Heritage. You do not have to ride a motorcycle to be a member. (Dismounted Cavalry) We actively recruit members in good standing with the Sons of Confederate Veterans which is a group you must be born into.
The entire Mechanized Cavalry has over 3,500 members in 19 States. We also have members in Spain, Holland, Canada, Wales, and Germany; natives of their respective countries. The SCV Mechanized Cavalry is not a motorcycle club (MC) but, rather, is a rolling billboard for the Sons of Confederate Veterans. You'll see us on the roads throughout the South, attending heritage events promoting our Southern Heritage. We are among the most active of SCV members and we're very proud to honor our heroic ancestors. If you see us on the road or at a function somewhere, wave or say hello.
If you think you might be interested in joining us, ask us for information. We'll be happy to help those who share our passion and respect for our Confederate ancestors to "enlist" in the Cavalry. We do have back patches (service mark) that may be worn at appropriate times and places. If your family is from the South you probably have a honorable Confederate veteran in your linage. If you are unsure, we have qualified people that can help you with research and will put you in contact with a camp in your area.
