Meetings are an opportunity to spend time with an interesting group of men who share a common bond as descendents of patriots of the Union Forces in the War Between the States.

 

While a majority of our members reside in Lee County, Collier County, Charlotte County, and Hendry County, other parts of Florida and several other States are represented as well.

 

Our meetings are open to all interested persons, and we particularly welcome Brothers from other parts of the country who are visiting our area.
