1. Recent events have demonstrated that the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War and the Lincoln Death Day Association have different objectives and goals.

7. As the observances began as and have traditionally continued as a cooperative effort between this Order and The Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States, efforts will be taken towards the formation of a joint committee, to continue these observances as it was always intended.
