Virginia Division UDC Logo



Those eligible for active membership in the United Daughters of the Confederacy are women no less than sixteen years of age who are blood descendants, lineal or collateral, of men or women who served honorably in the Army, Navy or Civil Service of the Confederate States of America, or gave Material Aid to the Cause. Also eligible are those women who are lineal or blood descendants of members or former members of the UDC. Adopted children are not eligible for membership by virtue of the adoptive parents’ bloodlines, but solely by virtue of the natural or biological parents. Proof of ancestor service to the Confederate States of America is required.

The Fredericksburg Chapter currently has 68 members, one associate member, and numerous prospective members.

The Fredericksburg Chapter was especially honored to have among its membership Mrs. Raymond (Brooke) Hughes Snead, a REAL Daughter. Mrs. Snead’s father, Eldridge Tucker Hughes, served with the “Goochland Light Dragoons” – Company F, 4th Virginia Calvary. Brooke is no longer with us, but her memory will live on in our hearts forever.
