16th South Carolina Color Guard of Honor
The 16th South Carolina Color Guard of Honor, comprised of SCV members, serves as ambassadors to the community. The Color Guard embodies the virtues and principles of our ancestors that we honor; virtues and principles that are just as valid in the 21st Century as they were in 1861. The Color Guard provides a military honor guard for ceremonial occasions. The 16th South Carolina Color Guard of Honor carries the Unites States flag, the South Carolina flag, and the Confederate Battle flag. In addition, the Color Guard normally is flanked by members carrying rifles. The unit wears custom-made uniforms that are an impression of what a crack color guard unit would wear today if the South had won the War for Southern Independence.
The Color Guard participates in parades, historical events, funerals, opening ceremonies at civic events, and opening ceremonies for clubs and organizations. The Color Guard is open to any SCV member. You may contact the 16th South Carolina Color Guard of Honor through:
