R. G. Wilson, commander in chief of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, contributed the foreword. As the oldest patriotic and hereditary organization for male descendents of Confederate soldiers and sailors, the Sons of Confederate Veterans continues to preserve and defend the history and principles of the Old South. Through more than seven hundred camps and 35,000 members coast to coast, the memory and sacrifice of the men who defended the Confederacy, as well as the heritage, history, and records of the Confederate States of America, endure.
