Charge to the Sons of Confederate Veterans: "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 also 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, United Confederate
Veterans; New Orleans, Louisiana; April 25, 1906.
