The Last Soldier Project

Beginning in 2003, the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War (SUVCW) embarked on the Last Soldier Project. The purpose of the project is to locate and appropriately mark the final resting place of the last Civil War Soldier buried in each county/parish and in each state of this great country.

The Last Soldier project is funded, in part, by the SUVCW's Monuments and Memorials Grant Fund and also by obtaining contributions of the citizens, local veteran organizations and governmental agencies.  For more information, please visit the SUVCW Last Soldier page.

PLEASE HELP!!  The Ben Harrison Camp is currently seeking information on any Civil War soldier who may have been the last soldier buried in any of the counties in central or southern Indiana.  If you know of or suspect a soldier who might have been the last burial in a particular county, please send an e-mail to the Ben Harrison Camp Web Host.  We will be listing on this web page or on the Department of Indiana SUVCW Last Soldier Page all known or suspected Last Soldiers from each county, as we receive the information.
