Mobile, Alabama

Cause Description:
Welcome to the Sons of Confederate Veterans, Admiral Raphael Semmes Camp 11, Cuba Libre Camp Project Donation Page. The Sons of Confederate Veterans is a Non-Racial, Non-Political, Non-Sectarian, Historical, Patriotic and Genealogical Organization, Founded in 1896. We welcome all men who are descendants (Lineal or Collateral) of men who served in the Confederate Military. The Admiral Raphael Semmes Camp 11, located in Mobile, Alabama has set up a "Cuba Libre Camp Project" to help preserve the History and Genealogy of Cubans and other Minorities who served in the Confederate Military or those who assisted the Confederate War Effort. This History has been ignored and forgotten and we hope that this project will help preserve it for future generations, both in the United States and in a Free Cuba. We would also like to preserve the History and Genealogy of other Ethnic Groups who served in the Confederate Military. These include the African -American Confederates and "Free Creoles of Color", as well as other Hispanic Confederates, including Spaniards (Basques, Catalans, Canary Islanders and Minorcans), as well as Mexicans, Puerto Ricans and Sephardic Jews, who served. There were approx. 7000 Hispanics (approx. 9000-12,000 if you include the "daughtered out" names) who served in the Confederate Military, of which over 400 were Officer's. The known Cuban Confederate contribution was approx. 80 confirmed men and 4 women but there are many more who have yet to be confirmed. The majority of the Cuban Confederates had settled along the Gulf Coast States of Alabama, Louisiana and Florida prior to the War. They mostly came from Havana, Cuba and the surrounding area, although a few were from other parts of Cuba. The small Cuban Community in New Orleans, Louisiana was even able to form a Confederate Militia Company known as "The Cuban Rifles" early in the War and many of its members served in other Confederate Units between 1861 and 1865. // The goal of the Cuba Libre Camp Project is to identify every single Cuban Confederate and to preserve their Military Records, History, Genealogy and any known Photographs and then to do the same for other Ethnic Minorities, who served in the Confederate Military. We hope to be able to preserve a part of American, Confederate and Cuban History, as well as that of other Minority Groups for future generations. We set a project goal of $50,000, this is a "Long Term Goal" and we will immediately begin this project with whatever Donations we recieve, even if it means researching One Soldier at a time, "Rome wasn't built in a day" and neither will this project be completed overnight. Remember, if we don't preserve OUR History, who will ? Please Donate to the Cuba Libre Camp Project of the Admiral Raphael Semmes Camp 11, Sons of Confederate Veterans, any Donation amount is welcome, please take a second and Donate today. Remember every penny counts and gets us closer to our long term goal. // If you are a Descendant of a Cuban, Hispanic or other Minority which served in the Confederate Military and want some more information on Minorities in the Confederacy or if want to join the Sons of Confederate Veterans, please contact me at JoinTheSCV@Aol.Com . Thank You // Gracias !
