Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War

Iowa has a proud history in the Civil War. Iowa regiments fought at Fort Donelson, Shiloh, Vicksburg, Chattanooga, and Atlanta. Many were on the March to the Sea and the March through the Carolinas. Others served west of the Mississippi in Missouri, Arkansas and Louisiana.

We will be commemorating the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War from 2011 through 2015. Join the Sons of Union Veterans for various events including dedications, parades and reenactments. Please visit one of the many wonderful monuments in Iowa honoring the Civil War Veterans who fought and died for their country.

We have taken photographs of all known Iowa monuments with a brief written description including directions about how to locate the monument. Our intent is to add more historical information in the future. We have also added Iowa monuments outside the state, such as those on battlefields at Vicksburg and Shiloh. The definition of monument is fairly broad as cannons, GAR Halls, head stones of Medal of Honor Recipients, stained glass windows and historic homes are included along with the traditional monuments or memorials.

Please contact me if there are any additions or corrections. I am sure that there are other monuments that have been overlooked. Contact me at Gaardt@aol.com.
