Robert E Lee 1567 Chapter ~ Boonville, Cooper County, Missouri

United Daughters of the Confederacy®

Welcome to our website.

Combining our pride in our southern heritage with dedication to our country and our home city, the Robert E. Lee Chapter and its members stay busy.
We are active in numerous programs that benefit the community and celebrate our southern heritage.

We are involved with local historic societies, veteran’s programs and hospitals, scholarships, and historic preservation. Members participate in historic re-enactments, ceremonies to mark the graves of Confederate soldiers and activities to support and honor veterans and active duty personnel.

Specifically, our chapter has awarded scholarships to area college students, made financial donations to the Veterans Honor Flight Network and has marked area Confederate graves with the UDC Iron Cross to honor the veteran.


The chapter meets the second Saturday of each month. Meetings usually include a time of fellowship, light refreshments and a program of historical significance. Please email us for times and locations of the meetings.

Membership in UDC begins by getting to know us.

Contact us, and plan to attend a meeting soon. We look foward to meeting you.

Thespian Hall

Thespian Hall

A landmark in Boonville, the Thespian Hall, built in 1857, is the oldest theater still in use west of the Alleghenies. During the War Between the States, the Hall was used as a hospital and, at various times, as a barracks by different army troops. Pictured on this page is the earliest known photograph taken of the Hall c1869 by James C Macurdy.
