Thanks for the visit.
We, the posterity of the Officer Corps and
civil officials of the Confederacy, do pledge
ourselves to comemorate and honor the service
of leadership these men rendered in the cause
of the fundamental American principles of
self-determination and states' rights and to
perpetuate the true history of their deeds for
the edification of ourselves, our society, and
for generations yet unborn.
"It is our duty to keep the memory of
our heroes green. Yet they belong to the
whole country; they belong to America."
President, Jefferson Davis CSA
On August 30, 1938, the first meeting of the
"Order of the Stars & Bars" was convened with
seventeen former Confederate officers and forty-
seven male descendants of Confederate officers
in attendance. It was unique in that the
organization was made up of veterans and their
descendants with the understanding that as the
original Confederate officers died their off-
spring would continue to carry on the purposes
of the Order. The name of the Order was changed
to "The Military Order of the Stars & Bars" at
the general convention held at Memphis, Tennessee,
in 1976, and the "Stars and Bars", the first
National Flag of the Confederate States of
America was accepted as the symbol of the Order.
