Summary: Membership and ladies’ auxiliary records of a fraternal and political organization of Union Army veterans’ descendants.

Historical Note

The Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War (SUVCW) was founded in 1881 as a successor organization to the Grand Army of the Republic. Membership is open to all male descendants of veterans of the Union Army. A ladies’ auxiliary organization allows women to participate in activities complementary to those of the SUVCW.

Content Description

This SUVCW collection is unusual in that the activities of the camp’s Ladies’ Auxiliary are much better documented than those of the camp itself. The collection includes approximately twenty years of the ladies’ auxiliary’s meeting minutes as well as membership records. The bulk of the camp’s records consist of membership records, but fragmentary correspondence and financial records may be found as well.
