Biographical or historical data
The United Confederate Veterans were organized in New Orleans in June 1889 and elected General John B. Gordon as the first General Commander. The first reunion was held in Chattanooga, Tennessee on 3 July 1890. Its mission was to "unite all associations of Confederate veterans, to gather data for an impartial history of the war, to preserve relics or mementos, to care for the disabled, to protect widows and orphans, and to make and preserve a record of the services of every member." The Sons of Confederate Veterans was created in 1896 in Richmond, Virginia.
