Biographical or historical data
The society, organized in 1890 by Joseph Cullen Root, offers two classes of membership: Beneficiary and social/fraternal. Initially, memberships were offered to "white males of sound bodily health, exemplary habits, and good moral character" who were devoted to the principles of perfected woodcraft. Insurance benefits were paid and monuments were erected for deceased members. Presently (1999), it is still in existence and open to women. There are statewide "Head Camps" with four subordinate bodies: camps and groves, for 16 year olds and older; courts, for 16 year old and older females; and junior units, for those who are under 16. The Appomattox Camp, No. 152, in Ettrick, Virginia, was organized about 1910.
