 A REAL Daughter is a member whose father served in the Civil War. Ladies extraordinaire, they are a treasure and an inspiration to our organization. If you know of any lady who is a first generation daughter of a Civil War veteran, we would be thrilled to have them join our membership. Their membership is FREE. However, their direct lineage must be documented.
