Who are we?

Our Values

The Sons of Union Veteran’s participate in many activities at Mount Peace Cemetery where over 430 Union Army Veterans are buried. They have helped dedicate various State Historical Markers. They take great pride in the marker in front of the old Grand Army of the Republic Hall on Massachusetts Avenue because they were major contributors both financially and in its wording. 

 Local activites


Marching in parades locally and occasionally in other parts of Florida.

It’s an honor to be a “Son.” 

 

Our Team

The Sons of Union Veterans, L L Mitchell Camp Four was chartered in 1996. It revises a St Cloud tradition of remembering and honoring the veterans of the Civil War who had worked and fought to preserve the Union and end slavery. St. Cloud was founded by Union Army Veterans and they strive to keep this history alive. 

The 2021 Department Encampment was held Saturday May 15th in St. Cloud at the St. Cloud Senior Citizens Center (Community Center) 3101 17th Street.  

SONS OF UNION VETERANS OF THE CIVIL WAR
 
As Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War (SUVCW), we are the legal heirs to the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR). Our goal and purpose is to perpetuate the memory of the GAR; what they did in the Civil War and to preserve the Union, and to con­tinue the work they started following the War. Teaching others about our flag, patriotism and citizenship were important to them and should be important to us all. Learning about the other cultures and histories that live among us today is important, but the basic history of the United States cannot take second place to that of others.


 

We are a National organization divided into Depart­ments (States) and then Camps (local chapters). While perpetuating the memory of the GAR, we also work actively to locate and record the final resting place of all Civil War soldiers as well as work to restore and or preserve Civil War memorials. We also seek to honor the veterans of all wars. We participate in Memorial Day services as well as those on Veterans' Day.
