Military Order of the Stars and Bars

The Military Order of the Stars and Bars is a fraternal organization for descendants of men who served as commissioned officers in the armed forces of the Confederate States of America or who are descended from members of the Confederate Congress, or any elected or appointed member of the Executive Branch of the Confederate Government. Its home office is in Daphne, Alabama.

Previously, it was headquartered in Columbia, Tennessee in the antebellum house "Elm Springs", where it was co-located with a similar organization, the Sons of Confederate Veterans. Together, the two organizations published a magazine, Confederate Veteran. This arrangement ended in 2005 when SCV Commander-in-Chief Denne Sweeney paid $67,500 to sever relations.

In 2006, the MOSB's Commander General Daniel W. Jones, citing "the continuing political turmoil within the SCV," moved the MOSB out of the shared headquarters, ended the joint magazine publishing enterprise, and separated the two organizations' finances. In 2006, for the first time the two organizations held separate conventions.
