Announcement #4 – January 25, 2021
The SCV Charge Policy
We are fast approaching the Reunion season and it has been brought to my attention the SCV Charge Policy had not been shared with you. Below you will find the official policy adopted by the GEC on October 10, 2020 at our last meeting:
It shall be the policy approved by the General Executive Council of the Sons of Confederate Veterans that all its Divisions, camps, and subdivisions or subordinate organizations will incorporate in their Constitutions and or By-Laws the following Charge from Lt. General Stephen Dill Lee and nothing will be added or removed from said Charge to keep it in historical accuracy as published in The Constitution of 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.”
Any current or future publications of the said Charge of Lt. General Stephen Dill Lee shall have the Charge as adopted and approved by the General Executive Council of the Sons of Confederate Veterans.
Unanimously adopted by the General Executive Council on October 10, 2020
God Bless our Southland,
Larry McCluney, Jr.
