The association was established at Franklin on Sept. 14, 1892, in conjunction with the annual reunion of the Tennessee Association of Confederate Soldiers which was held in McGavock's Grove 500 yards Southeast of this marker. The Tennessee Association, Sons of Confederate Soldiers was founded by Delegates representing bivouacs from Winchester, Nash., Clarksville, Gainesboro, Knoxville, Franklin, and McKenzie. Known today as the Sons of Confederate Veterans (S.C.V.), the group continues to promote Confederate historical and memorial events.

The first officers of the association were Biscoe Hindman - President, Lee S. McEwen - Vice President, James Turney - second VP, Litton Hickman - Secretary, Frank Beaumont - Treasurer, Rev. Thomas Gailor - Chaplain, and James T. Quarles - Sergeant-at-Arms. Ten thousand people were welcomed by the city before attending the program. They were seated at a dinner table 1 mile long while hearing tragic battle related stories from survivors of the hard fought Battle of Franklin a mere 26 years earlier.
