- The Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War is dedicated to preserving the memory of the brave soldiers, sailors, and marines who fought heroically to save the Union. We conduct Memorial Day services at cemeteries, reset and preserve existing headstones, and set and dedicate new stones. At regular monthly meetings, members share stories of their ancestors and where they fought, listen to speakers on various CW topics, and conduct the regular business of the camp.
The National Commander-in-Chief and the Commander of the Department of Kansas have authorized the formation of a new SUVCW camp in Cowley County. We will hold our first meeting in the process to organize the camp.
I invite any man with interest in the Civil War to meet next Saturday, August 3, at the Cowley County Historical Museum at 10:00 am.
Come and learn how you can be a part of preserving CW history.
