The Mechanized Cavalry is among the most active of SCV members. We proudly display our Southern symbols and mission is to honor our grandfathers who fought bravely for the right cause. We believe that Gen. Patrick Cleburne was right when he said, "Surrender means that the history of this heroic struggle will be written by the enemy; that our youth will be trained by Northern school teachers; will learn from Northern school books their version of the War; will be impressed by all the influences of history and education to regard our gallant dead as traitors, and our maimed veterans as fit subjects for derision."
President Jefferson Davis was prophetic when he said, "The contest is not over, the strife is not ended. It has only entered upon a new and enlarged arena. The principle for which we contend is bound to reassert itself, though it may be at another time and in another form." This has never been more true and it is our duty to defend the honor of those heroic men who went to war to save their liberties from a tyrannical government and a brutal, invading enemy.
"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." ~~ Lt. Gen. Stephen D. Lee, CSA, Commander, United Confederate Veterans, 1906
