Charge to the Sons of Confederate Veterans

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 ideas which made him glorious and which you also cherish."
