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 virtues, 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 Oleans, Louisiana, 1906

News Update


The Sons of Confederate Veterans, litigating to protect Southern and U.S. history, were granted on October 24th an extension of the Temporary Injunction against the City of Charlottesville, VA, and its City Council, generally preventing disturbance or alteration of the Robert E. Lee and Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson Monuments in the City of Charlottesville, VA.  The pronounced intentions and intended acts of the Charlottesville City Council, in violation of Virginia's Veterans' Monuments and Memorials Statute, have been enjoined through a Court of law.

The Sons of Confederate Veterans will continue efforts to ensure that the history of our Great Republic, and the memorials dedicated to Southern and Confederate Veterans are protected and given the honors to which they are entitled and to which they well deserve.

The rule of law and the honor of Confederate heroes has won the day. 

The lawless and the enemies of history, heritage, and truth are currently prohibited from destroying the honor of true American heroes and veterans.
