President General explains purpose of the United Daughters of the Confederacy to preserve the privileges of the "pure Anglo-Saxon race."

The bibliographic note for this is, Mrs. Roy W. McKinney, President General of the United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC), "From the President General," Confederate Veteran, Vol. 28 No. 1, Jan. 1920, page 32. UDC members did not generally until late in the 20th century use their own names, but instead used their husband's names.

The UDC has the slogan, "Live, Love, Think, Pray, Dare." This is the Live section of her message.
Live to brighten the declining years of the men who wore the gray; live to educate their posterity and thereby fasten more securely the rights and privileges of citizenship upon a pure Anglo-Saxon race; live to to hand down to generations to come a truthful history of these men and of the times in which they live.
Confederate heritage as defined by the UDC.
