Poplar Spring Grays, Camp # 1700

Spring Hope, NC, CSA

To you, sons of Confederate Veterans, we submit 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 he loved and which made him glorious and which you also cherish. Remember it is your duty to see that the true history of the South is presented to future generations. - Commission to SCV by Lt. General Stephen D. Lee, 1896
