Charge to the SCV!

Lt. General Stephen Dill Lee, Commanding General, United Confederate Veterans, gave us our charge in 1906.  

To you, Sons of Confederate Veterans, we submit the vindication of the Cause for 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 those principles, he loved and which made him glorious and which you cherish.  Remember, it is your duty to see that the true history of the South is presented to future generations.”
