Military Order of the Stars and Bars Pledge
We, the posterity of the Officer Corps and civil officials of the Confederacy, do
pledge ourselves to commemorate and honor the service of leadership these men rendered
in the cause of the fundamental American principles of self-determination and states'
rights and to perpetuate the true history of their deeds for the edification of ourselves,
our society and for generations yet unborn.
We also offer support by any means possible to national headquarters. Many of the
current and past national leaders have come from the Texas Society.
In efforts to fulfill our duty to our ancestors and to the Military Order of the
Stars and Bars, Texas Society members participate in a number of activities. Historical
reenactments, parades, monument dedications and educational presentations to name
