The aims of the General organization, which was founded in Nashville, TN, in 1894 and reorganized in Atlanta, GA, in 1895, are to preserve and protect the historical writings of the Confederacy, the true history of its people, and historic sites of Confederate valor, while honoring the memory of those gallant boys in gray.
