Honoring the past through Education, Preservation and Community Service.

The Ladies of the G.A.R., Congressionally Chartered, is the oldest Women’s hereditary organization in the United States.  The original objectives of the organization included promotion of patriotism and loyalty to the Union, participation in community service, especially for the aid of our Veterans and their dependants.  Today’s objectives are still the same, with great emphasis on education and preservation of Civil War history.  This is accomplished through local school and community programs, monument and battlefield preservation, fundraising for memorial and dedication ceremonies, and involvement in local activities including patriotic holiday observances and parades.  The goal of The Ladies of the GAR is to teach patriotism and preserve the historyof our ancestry.  This is our founding principle.  Together with other organizations, we are making a difference in our Country, one community at a time.
