Charge to the Sons of Confederate Veterans

To you, Sons of Confederate Veterans, we will commit to the vindication of the cause which we fought.

To your strength will be given the defense of the Confederate soldier’s good name, the guardianship of his history, the emulation of his virtues, the perpetuation of these principles which he loved and which you love also, and those ideals which made him glorious and which you will cherish.

Remember, it is your duty to see that the true history of the South is presented to future generations.

- Lt. General Stephen Dill Lee

Commander-General
