COL Robert W. Barnard Camp 2

The Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War (SUVCW) is a volunteer, non-profit, charitable, fraternal, patriotic and educational organization similar to the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR), which was the largest Union Civil War veterans' organization. The SUVCW is officially recognized as the GAR's legal successor, receiving its Congressional Charter in 1954 (Public Law 605).

Membership in the SUVCW is open to male descendents (sons, grandsons, great grandsons, nephews, grand nephews, great grand nephews, etc.) of soldiers, sailors, or marines who were mustered into Federal service and served honorably in, were honorably discharged from, or died in the service of the Union Army or Navy during the War of the Rebellion, 1861-1865. Member applicants must be at least 14 years of age and must not have been convicted of any heinous or notorious crime (felony). In addition, the applicant and his ancestor(s), through which eligibility is claimed, must not have ever borne arms against the U.S. Government. Male descendants, ages 6-14, may join as Juniors with the same stipulations stated above.

Males who do not have the ancestry to qualify for hereditary membership, but who demonstrate a genuine interest in the Civil War, who are 14 years of age or older, and who can subscribe to the purpose and objectives of the SUVCW may become Associates.
