Charge to the Sons of Confederate Veterans:
"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."

We of the Ohio Division are very proud of our Confederate Heritage. Three of our Camps are named after Ohio born Confederate heroes. Ohio has a rich Civil War heritage. Six of Ohioís sons became Confederate Generals. The war first came to Ohio in 1862, when Confederate Colonel Albert Jenkins rode into Ohio on a raid.  General John Hunt Morgan then rode through Ohio in July of 1863, and brought the War into Ohio. He suffered defeat at Buffington Island in Meigs County.

Ohio was also the final destination for some Confederates at prison camps located at Camp Chase and Johnsonís Island. There are Confederate Cemeteries at each site. We hold Memorial Services at each location. Ohio has many more Confederate sites throughout the state. It is our Duty and Honor to help preserve these sites and we invite everyone to come to share our Confederate Heritage here in Ohio.
