CIVIL WAR/GAR MEMORIALS PROJECT

This is a very large project and we can use your assistance. If you know of a monument to the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) or Civil War-related memorial (of any size or design) near you, we invite you to share this information with the SUVCW. Please contact our Department Civil War Memorials Officer with any information.
