The Mechanized Cavalry is a part of the SCV That LOVES the road. It is open to all members in good standing who wish to do a little extra in helping to preserve our Heritage and to protect the Honor of our Ancestors as Charged to us as the SCV. As many already know, most of the Southern War records were destroyed by the north as a means to cover up any wrongdoings that would make the Union look bad. If that wasn't bad enough, many military and death records were also destroyed. That's where we come in. One of our main objectives is to schedule rides to the old cemeteries off the beaten path. It leads us to some pretty cool spots way out in the boonies (and many are not very well kept) in search of our undocumented dead.
Other plans will include re-tracing Morgans Run through beautiful Southern Indiana and maybe checking out a cave or two. If all goes right, we intend to join in a ride or two to benefit area Childrens' Hospitals and set up a local campaign to help families of fallen Vets.
So if this is something you may be interested in, Please contact Commander Garrett or send a memo with "Mechanized Cavalry" in the body on the contact page and we will respond with instructions. Not a Member? We will do our best to help you find your Confederate Ancestor.
