"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."

Lees’ take on the Confederate Soldier:
“So far as lies in our power, we have striven that history may not lack the evidence of his purity of motive, his fortitude, his heroism. I, for one, do not fear that justice, however long delayed, will not ultimately be done to one of the grandest bodies of men who ever battled for independence or, triumphing over defeat, bound up the bleeding wounds of the country.”

We'd like to thank our members and their guest for making this an extraordinary event celebrating the births of Generals Lee and Jackson. This years head count was 46. The food brought back childhood memories of the women folk ringing the dinner bell and us kids running up from the Cumberland River to set down to an unbelievable spread of grub where even the mashed taters were steaming hot! Hats off to the cooks for a fabulous job.
