ID required) Grand Army of the Republic and Kindred Societies By PDC Michael W. Beck After the Civil War was over many soldier were incapacitated by their wounds and or diseases. Service organizations were created such as the Women s Relief Corps, Loyal Ladies League and the Ladies of the G. A. R. etc., etc. As the fathers and brothers told their stories of battles and victories were retold over and over again, the sons and daughters of these veterans started their own organizations such as Son of Veterans of the United State of America, Ladies Aid Society (formerly known as the Loyal Ladies Legion and the Daughters of Veterans. During this time frame there were also a number of other Association and Societies organized around the United States. 1. The National Association of Naval Veterans of the United States, organized January 13, The Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States, organized in May of Union Veterans Legion, which was organized March of 1884 in Pittsburg, PA 4.

4 Little known facts about the Gettysburg Battlefield Camp Colt was established in 1917, and opened at Gettysburg National Military Park in March, 1918 as the first post to train soldiers to use tanks during World War I. The main section of the camp was in the fields made famous 55 years before, by Pickett s Charge. The commander of Camp Colt was Captain Dwight D. Eisenhower. Eisenhower would earn the rank of Major, and the Distinguished Service Medal for his efforts at Camp Colt, and he and his wife, Mamie, fell in love with the area. After they retired from the military, the Eisenhower s made their home near Gettysburg, west of Seminary Ridge. After doing some research about Camp Colt, PDC Bruce Kolb and I decided to see if we you find some of the areas mention in photographs and information on Camp Colt. This is what we found in out last visit to Gettysburg, PA for the 2014 Remembrance Day Parade.
