I'm new to G2G and the civil war project.  my veteran was a member of the Bedford Forrest Conf. Veterans Camp #1606 in Portales, NM from 1907-1909.

This seems to be a fraternal veterans organization like the GAR.  If so it would have [[Category: United States Veterans Organizations]] with a subcategory of [[Category: United Confederate Veterans]] and under that subcategory [[Category: Bedford Forrest Confederate Veterans Camp, Portales, New Mexico.]]

If you need assistance setting this up, just say the word.
Natalie.yes you are correct. Can you set it up or do you want me to take a stab at it? I have not created one before

Tell you what: I'll set up the parent categories and you can add the 

[[Category: Bedford Forrest Confederate Veterans Camp, Portales, New Mexico]] to the man's profile. After you add that to his profile, the category will appear red on the profile. Click the red category, and an edit box will appear. You will need to add this to the top of the page:

 [[Category: United Confederate Veterans]] .

Ok. I will do that.
Hopefully, you will get some experience with adding categories. If you have further questions, you can ask here in G2G with a tag of "categorization". One of us will see it. Thank you!
I think I got it. I didn't get the last item you noted. Where to put the United Confederate Veterans category line.

OK, I'll take a look.
It's done. If you click on the category you created, you will see the "parent" categories of United Confederate Veterans and Portales, New Mexico.
Thank you!

I  misread that as Confderate POW camp.  I'm sure one could easily set up a category under Confederate States of America, United States Civil War

I read the question to mean old soldiers’ homes.  Last month I visited Beauvoir, the ladt home of Confederate President Jefferson Davis in Biloxi, MS. After his death, his widow refused to sale the home but turned it over ti SCV to be used as a hospital and retirement home. As the Vets died off, the werre buried in a cemetery in the back of the grounds.
