G.A.R. Monuments/Civil War Memorials

Monuments and Markers in Missouri


As legal heir to the Grand Army of the Republic (G.A.R.), the preservation of monuments, memorials, and outdoor sculpture erected and dedicated by the G.A.R., is one of the most important objectives of the SUVCW. Our American tradition of Memorial Day, founded by the G.A.R. in 1868, is celebrated each year with many communities still centering their Memorial Day programs around a monument erected by the G.A.R.. With proper care, these monuments will continue to stand in tribute to those who saved the Union.

In addition to those monuments erected by the G.A.R., there are many monuments erected by other organizations and individuals commemorating battles, engagements and skirmishes, as well as the exploits of individuals during the Civil War. The SUVCW is engaged in a nationwide campaign to physically seek and inspect every monument that can be found to document their existence and identify any restoration work that is needed.

Although the total number of G.A.R./Civil War monuments across the state of Missouri is not known, a goal has been established by the Department of Missouri to search all 114 counties and identify and document the conditions of all monuments located within those counties. The Department estimates that there may be as many as 400, and has established an aggressive goal to identify and record this number by the year 2010. In order to obtain additional information, or to find out how you can help, please contact our Department Monuments Officer at the following:

What Is A Monument?

The Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, Department of Missouri, is committed to helping maintain the historic monuments, markers, and plaques honoring Union soldiers, Union and Confederate Soldiers, and/or those containing significant text about the Civil War. However, not everything is a monument or marker.

Cemeteries often have monuments to the deceased that are really grand tombstones, and they are not considered monuments. However, sometimes, Grand Army of the Republic posts (such as in the case of Gen. John McNeil) or comrades in arms (as in the case of Major James Wilson) or soldiers honoring someone else (as in the case of Willie Sherman) sponsored the erection of monuments over graves. So, strangely, General W.T. Sherman's young son has a monument in St. Louis over his grave, but his more famous father does not! Those are monuments within our definition. This does not mean that we are not interested in the tombstones of soldiers, that is simply another program and this one is about monuments.

Another concern is that the monument, marker, or plaque represents the true history of the incident commemorated or be of a patriotic nature. As such, monuments that posit a one-sided, self-serving interpretation of the war are not patriotic and are not recorded by us.

Finally, the Sons of Confederate Veterans maintain a listing of monuments, markers, and plaques sponsored by the United Confederate Veterans and Daughters of Confederate Veterans and their allied orders. Our listing does not duplicate their efforts. For information on Confederate monuments and markers in Missouri visit: http://www.missouridivision-scv.org/monument.htm

If you come across a monument, marker, or plaque that may qualify for listing in our program or in need of repair, please contact Walt Busch, Dept of Missouri SUVCW Monuments Officer, at his e-mail. Please provide as much information as you can especially about the location and a member of the SUV will check it out as soon as it can be arranged.
