The Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War is a patriotic and educational organization, similar to the Grand Army of the Republic. It was founded on November 12, 1881 and incorporated by Act of Congress August 20, 1954. The Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War is the legal heir to and representative of the Grand Army of the Republic. More on About Us page
Membership is open to men who are directly descended from a Soldier, Sailor, Marine or member of the Revenue Cutter Service (or directly descended from a brother, sister, half brother or half sister of such Soldier). Men who do not have the ancestry to qualify for hereditary membership may become Associate members. All men with a genuine interest in the Civil War and can subscribe to the purpose and objects of SUVCW are welcome to join. More on Dept of GA and SC website on Membership Eligibility and Application page. Direct link to fillable application form
There is a misconception that SUVCW is all about being a Civil War reenactor. While there is a ceremonial uniformed military component of the SUVCW in the Sons of Veterans Reserve (SVR), the majority of the members are interested in the Civil War as history or family history enthusiasts. The SVR Units participate in Civil War related ceremonies, parades, living history programs, and re-enactments.
