Historical Note

The Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) was established on April 6, 1866 by Major B.F. Stephenson, a former army surgeon, and held its first national meeting that same year in Indianapolis, Indiana on November 22, 1866. Its membership consisted of Union veterans of the Civil War.

The GAR evolved from local veteran groups. The Connecticut GAR began with the United Service Club, with General Edward Harland of Norwich as president. In 1867, this Club was initiated into the Grand Army of the Republic, and Post #1, located in Norwich, was formed in February 1867.1

The GAR was concerned with veteran benefits and was actively involved in establishing soldiers’ homes, making provisions for soldiers’ graves, and lobbying for pension benefits. It proved to be an effective pressure group and exerted significant influence in the political arena.2

Membership in the organization reached its highest point in 1890, when its numbers reached over 400,000. In 1949, however, with almost all its members deceased, the GAR held its last national meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana. The decision was made to disband the organization after its last member died. This came about in 1956.

The Grand Army of the Republic, Department of Connecticut, was divided locally into posts, and organized on a military basis. The affiliated organizations of the GAR are the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, and the Women's Relief Corps.
