General Order, No. 4.
In viow of the approach of the time
for the reorganization and reunions of
subordinate State and National Camps
tho time seems propitious for calling
special attention to tho provisions of
General Orders, No. 303, of Lieutenant
General Stephan D. Lee, Commanding
U. C. V. promulgated more than a year
ago, bearing upon the subject of estab
lishing closer relations between the
Veterans and Sons of Veterans and to
encourage tho formation of Camps of
Sons of Veterans and for other pur
poses, (a copy of which General Orders
will be published next week.)
With daily admonition of the rapid
depletion of our ranks as one by one
tho Veteran soldiers of the mightiest
conflict of modern times drops out of
the attenuated lines to join our com
rades on the eternal camping ground,
nnd realizing that the time is already
at hand, when upon the sons and daugh
ters of these men, must devolve the sa
cred duty and privilege of rescuing ami
defending from partisan perversion and
falsehood, the story of our immortal
struggle and of preserving and trans
mitting to posterity the priceless berit
agc'Jeft them by the immortal men and
women of the sixties, the Colonel com
manding cannot too earnestly urge up
on all Camps the necessity for action.
Under this order, subordinate Camps
of United Confederate Veterans are
empowered and are hereby urged to
give all members of duly organized
Camps of Sons of Veterans "such priv
ileges of membership as each Camp may
determine, and by loving kindness make
them feel that they are the Sons of the
Veterans' Camps." Particular atten
tion is directed to the importance of
holding more frequent meetings of sub
ordinate Camps. Veterans, let us meet
and mingle together more frequently,
and keep alive the memories of a glori
ous past. Lot us invite the Sons to join
and mingle in our councils, that we may
avail ourselves of their council and as
sistance, and that they may imbibe
something of the spirit of the few who
still survive of an historic and heroic age,
and that they may draw anew inspira
tions for the sacrifices, struggles and
triumphs of the future.
