General organization.

I rejoice that a general organization too long neglected has been at last perfected. It is a brotherhood which all honorable men must approve and which heaven itself will bless. I call upon you, therefore, to organize in every State and community where exConfede-rates may reside and rally to the support of the high and peaceful objects of the ‘United Confederate Veterans,’ and move forward until by the power of organization and persistent effort your beneficient and Christian purposes are fully accomplished.

J. B. Gordon, Commanding General
