By the 1890's our Confederate Forefathers, the United
Confederate Veterans, were getting on in years and began to
look at how to best preserve the legacy of the Cause for
which they had fought. To accomplish this honorable goal
they established an organization for their descendants - the
Sons of Confederate Veterans - in 1896. In 1906 to this
organization the Men in Grey left - what is today called
Charge to the Sons
of Confederate Veterans
Sons of Confederate Veterans, we will commit 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 which he loved and which you love
also, and those
ideals which made him glorious and which you also cherish."
Lt. General Stephen Dill Lee, Commander General,
United Confederate Veterans,
New Orleans, Louisiana, April 25, 1906.
