Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War - Monuments and Memorial Database
Kansas is known as a Soldier state due to the very large number of Civil War Veterans who settled here. Almost all communities supported a camp of the Grand Army of the Republic (G.A.R.). It was typical for those camps to sponsor or erect monuments to honor the Civil War Soldier whether lost during the war or as a returned Veteran. The Women’s Relief Corps (W.R.C.), Ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic (L.G.A.R.), and others also erected memorials and monuments. Many county court house squares, City Parks, and local cemeteries are so honored. This listing preserves the memory of those Civil War Memorials and Monuments located in Kansas.
