Charge to 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. - Stephen D. Lee, Lieutenant General, CSA
The meaning of the Confederate Battle Flag
The red field represents the Blood of Christ.
The white border represents the Protection of God.
The blue "X" represents the Christian Cross of Saint Andrew, the first Disciple of Jesus and Patron Saint of Scotland.
The 13 stars represent the 13 Southern States of Secession.
Thus, the message in the Confederate Battle Flag is:
"Through the Blood of Christ, with the Protection of God, We, the Thirteen States, are united in our Christian fight for liberty."
Regarding Confederate Monuments
Confederate Soldiers, Sailors and Marines that fought in the Civil War were made U.S. Veterans by an Act of Congress in 1957, U.S. Public Law 85-425. Sec 410, Approved 5/23/1958.
This made all Confederate Veterans Equal to U.S. Veterans. Additionally, under U.S. Public Law 810, Approved by the 17th Congress on 2/26/1929, the War Department was directed to erect headstones and recognize Confederate grave sites as U.S. war grave sites.
The Last Confederate Veteran died in 1958. So, in essence, when you remove a Confederate Statue, Monument or Headstone, you are in fact removing a Statue, Monument or Headstone of a U.S. VETERAN!
