The William Kenyon Australian Confederates SCV Camp 2160 was organized in Australia to honour those Confederate soldiers from, or who are buried in, Australia and New Zealand; and to perpetuate the memory of their dedicated sacrifice in defense of the Southern states

Unknown to many and forgotten by all, those dedicated veterans became citizens of Australia and New Zealand after the War Between the States and were buried, many without even a stone to mark their grave, in a land far from the shores they fought to protect.

It is now up to the Sons of Confederate Veterans, Inc. and members of the William Kenyon Australian Confederates Camp 2160 to preserve their stories for future generations; and to ensure that the gravesites of all such veterans be marked and remembered for their gallant service.

It must always be remembered that many from Australia, and New Zealand, traveled to America and participated in the defense of the Confederacy as gallant soldiers, some never to return.

In addition, there are members of the Confederate Treasury Department and Blockade Runners buried in Australia and New Zealand, who fought and defied death to supply the Confederate forces with munitions and supplies in their time of need.

They as well must never be forgotten.

The William Kenyon Australian Confederates Camp 2160 is dedicated to preserving their memories and defending the honour they rightly deserve, and for which they fought, against the unconstitutional and illegal invasion by northern troops.
