In conclusion

We would express again our increasing sense of the importance of the work in which we are engaged — our abiding conviction that the present is the golden period for successful effort — and our earnest hope that we may have the warm sympathies, the active co-operation, the liberal help of all who desire to see the truth of history vindicated, the name and fame of our Confederate people defended, and the heroic deeds of “the men who wore the gray” handed down to our children, and perpetuated by the future historian.

By order of the Executive Committee.
