1. Grand Army of the Republic (Wikipedia). The Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) was a fraternal organization composed of veterans of the Union Army (United States Army), Union Navy (U.S. Navy), Marines and the U.S. Revenue Cutter Service who served in the American Civil War. It was founded in 1866 in Springfield, Illinois, and grew to include hundreds of "posts" (local community units) across the nation. It was dissolved in 1956 at the death of its last member, Albert Woolson (1850–1956) of Duluth, Minnesota. (Submitted on May 20, 2020, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)

The National Woman’s Relief Corps (WRC) is an active organization, chartered in 1883 as auxiliary to the Grand Army of the Republic (GRR). It is a patriotic organization whose primary goal is to provide perpetually, curation and preservation of research, documents and records that pertain to the GRR. The WRC also strives to perpetuate the memory of those who sacrificed much and sometimes all in the Great War of the Rebellion (The American Civil War).
