About Us

     Tulsa’s first SCV camp, D. M. Wisdom, was established in 1908 under the leadership of Tate Brady, one of the founders of Tulsa and a prominent businessman and civic promoter.  Camp Stand Watie, No. 664 was chartered in 1911.  Records do not exist with either National SCV or Camp McIntosh to inform us whether Camp Wisdom had failed, and Camp Stand Watie was an entirely new camp, or that the 1911 charter was simply a re-charter to effect a name change.  In either case, the camp existed through 1948.  After a one-year lapse in 1949, probably due to lack of membership, Camp Stand Watie, No. 664, was re-chartered in 1950.  Waldo Emerson “Dode” McIntosh, a grandson of Col. Daniel N. McIntosh, was the camp’s first commander under the new charter.  Sometime in the succeeding years, the camp ceased to exist.  Again, there are no records to inform us how long the camp was active.

On August 2, 1980, a new camp was chartered in Tulsa:  Capt. Clem V. Rogers, No. 1378.  The charter members were Mitchell Kelly, Randy Burns, David Riggs, Stanley V. Cronquist, Frank Fisk, W. P. Robinson, James Smith, Sequoyah Perry, Gerald Butterworth, Robert Hutchings and Harold T. Wood.  Sometime in 1986, a new charter was issued renaming the camp for Colonel Daniel N. McIntosh, commander of the 1st Creek Mounted Rifles (CSA), and grandfather of Dode McIntosh.  The Camp McIntosh charter retained the original Camp Rogers charter date of August 2, 1980.   The camp has remained in continuous existence from that date.

     Over the years, Camp McIntosh has had two annual events: Confederate Memorial Day, which is generally held on the third Saturday of May and an Awards Luncheon (formerly Real Sons/Real Daughters Luncheon), held on the second Saturday of August.  The camp began a monthly newsletter, The Round Mountain Report, in 1984.   The newsletter was named for the first battle of the War of Southern Independence fought in Indian Territory (Oklahoma), at a location a few miles west of Tulsa.  Today, Camp McIntosh remains a vibrant and growing camp with an unbounded future.
