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 virtures, 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, 1906
"Governor, if I had
foreseen the use
designed to make
of their victory,
there would have
been no surrender at Appomattox Courthouse, no
sir, not by me. Had I foreseen
these results of subjugation, I
would have preferred to die at
Appomattox with my brave
men, my sword in my right
- General Robert E. Lee
to Governor Stockdale
It is our Duty as decendants of these brave men to restore their sacred banner, the Confederate Battle Flag, back to it's rightful place of honor!!
"The Confederate Soldiers were our kinfolk and our heroes. We testify to the country our enduring fidelity to their memory. We commemorate their valor and devotion. There were some things that were not surrendered at Appomatox. We did not surrender our rights in history, nor was it one of the conditions of surrender that unfriendly lips should be suffered to tell the story of that war or that unfriendly hands should write the epitaphs of the Confederate dead. We have a right to teach our children the true history of that war, the causes that led up to it, and the principles involved."
- Senator Edward W. Carmack, 1903
