Philadelphia Chapter 972
From the beginning of our history, our chapter has been dedicated to honoring the objectives of the United Daughters of the Confederacy® — Historical, Educational, Benevolent, Memorial and Patriotic:
Underground Railway quilt, created by Philadelphia Chapter 972 member, Janice Blusnavage, which was auctioned during the 2009 General Convention to benefit our Chapter's scholarship fund.
To collect and preserve the material necessary for a truthful history of the War Between the States and to protect, preserve, and mark the places made historic by Confederate valor
To assist descendants of worthy Confederates in securing a proper education
To fulfill the sacred duty of benevolence toward the survivor of the War and those dependent upon them
To honor the memory of those who served and those who fell in the service of the Confederate States of America
To record the part played during the War by Southern women, including their patient endurance of hardship, their patriotic devotion during the struggle, and their untiring efforts during the post-War reconstruction of the South
To cherish the ties of friendship among the members of the Organization
We are patriotic in our respect for the American and Confederate Flags and in our genuine love for our nation. Since its founding, the United Daughters of the Confederacy® has continued to provide aid to U.S. troops and citizens alike, during times of war and in National emergencies.
Our mission is to further promote the interests of our organization and our members to the community. We strive to make a difference by educating the public and expanding our reach. Throughout our long history, our members have worked tirelessly to meet these objectives and to fulfill our mission.
