Grand Army of the Republic Collection

This source includes documents and publications that include information regarding members of several St. Louis posts (or chapters) of the Grand Army of the Republic, which was the largest association of Union Civil War veterans. This is not a comprehensive index to all the names that appear on documents or in publications in the Grand Army of the Republic Collection; rather, this collection was selectively indexed, focusing on sources that contain information about the member’s military service in the Civil War; biographical information; and date of the member’s death. Among the documents indexed are membership applications, transfer cards, biographical sketch forms, G.A.R. muster rolls, and death lists of members. The information contained in these sources varies.
