     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 "The Charge"

     Charge to the Sons of Confederate Veterans

     "To you, 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.
