About
Knoxville Chapter 89, United Daughters of the Confederacy was organized on 16 November 1896.
Company Overview
United Daughters of the Confederacy is the outgrowth of many local memorial, monument and Confederate Home Associations and auxiliaries to Camps of Confederate ...Veterans which were organized after the War Between the States. It is the oldest patriotic organization in our country because of its connection with two statewide organizations which came into existence as early as 1890, namely the Daughters of the Confederacy (DOC) in Missouri and the Ladies' Auxiliary of the Confederate Soldiers Home in Tennessee.

The National Association of the Daughters of the Confederacy was organized in Nashville, Tennessee, September 10, 1894, by Mrs. Caroline Merewether Goodlett of Nashville, and Mrs. Anna Davenport Raines of Georgia. When the organization held its second meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1895, the name of the Organization was changed to the United Daughters of the Confederacy. The United Daughters of the Confederacy was incorporated under the laws of the District of Columbia on July 18, 1919.
