I don't see much "vindication" with the "cause" chosen by the Confederate government those men fought for. The Confederate veteran's "Sons" are listening to the wrong Lee!Oh, it is not the case that the SCV doesn’t listens to what’ going on out there --there is far more listening than you might think. What SCV members don’t do is to listen to Confederate phobic opinion that they abandon the Charge to honour and to defend the Confederate soldier’s good name.
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.
