Children of the Confederacy Creed

Because we desire to perpetuate, in love and honor, the heroic deeds of those who enlisted in the Confederate service and upheld its flag through four years of war, we, the children of the South, have united in an Organization called the "Children of the Confederacy," in which our strength, enthusiasm, and love of justice can exert its influence.

We, therefore, pledge ourselves to preserve pure ideals, to honor the memory of our beloved Veterans, to study and teach the truths of history (one of the most important of which is that the War Between the States was not a rebellion), and always to act in a manner that will reflect honor upon our noble and patriotic ancestors.
