The Confederate Soldier
Fighters for Southern Independance
The Confederate soldier won the admiration of the world by his courageous fight against an enemy overwhelming in numbers, equipment and implements of war. With few exceptions they were volunteers who fought for principles of government in which they believed.
The Continued Work
“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.”
