Our organization is made up of more than 20,000 women nationwide who are lineal or collateral blood descendants of the men and women who served honorably in the Army, Navy, or Civil Service of the Confederate States of America or who gave material aid to the cause.  Our objects are Historical, Educational, Benevolent, Memorial and Patriotic, and our work is concentrated in these areas.

Organized in Meridian, Mississippi, on April 27, 
1897, the Mississippi Division United Daughters 
of the Confederacy has hundreds of members 
in many Chapters located throughout the state.
Mississippi Daughters work diligently to 
carry out the objects of our Organization.
