To perpetuate the acquaintance and the cordial affection existing among the officers; to chronicle the memories of our comrades who have nobly fallen in defence of their country's rights; to recall the scenes and incidents, pleasing or sad, of the camp, the march, the bivouac, and the battle; and to keep in mind the duty of preserving inviolate the rights, liberties and national honor for which the Army of the Union fought and bled, and on which depend the future happiness and dignity of the American Republic and the American people.
