Colorado/Wyoming – Civil War Memorials Inventory

As part of an ongoing project, the Sons of Union Veterans have been assessing monuments and memorials in Colorado/Wyoming Department’s Memorials range from a statue or cannons in a park, to a stained glass GAR window in a church or even a commemorative plaque on a wall.

This is not an all-inclusive list of Colorado/Wyoming memorials; there are some 28 known memorials in the Department. We will add to this page as photographs and information become available. There were 50 Post of the GAR in the area covered by the current Colorado/Wyoming Department.

If you have an interest in submitting a monument or memorial for this page, we require the following: at least one clear digital photo, a description of the location or address, and information about the monument, such as when it was erected and by whom, with a source cited for the information. Submit these materials to the Department of Colorado/Wyoming Signals Officer.
