What is the OCR ?

What is the OCR ? What exactly do you do ? What is your purpose? Questions I am often asked. I have been giving it some serious thought as to how to best answer these inquiries. First, the Order of Confederate Rose is a support group for the Sons of Confederate Veterans, helping with their social & benevolent functions. But we are so much more than that, - we have our own agenda as well. Chapters of the OCR raise funds to purchase flags for the Flags across Florida project. To date we have supplied flags for White Springs and the Confederate Park Flag site in Tampa. We have placed a memorial plaque for Rose O’Neal Greenhow and a granite bench at Confederate Park as well. We strive to protect our monuments and southern culture and heritage. We march in parades, provide living history, we teach about our heritage, but most importantly we are visible in our communities in a positive light.

In the past several years we have provided school supplies to small rural schools. Helping teachers educate our youth. We have donated clothing to women’s shelters across the state. Toys for Tots, food drives & roadside cleanups are just a few of the civic activities of the OCR. We support a scholarship to place children in the Sam Davis Youth Camp. Because our youth are our tomorrow.

The next time someone asks What is the Order of Confederate Rose, tell them we are all these things and more.
