|The Last Soldier Project: Wisconsin|
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 Civil War veteran from each Wisconsin county will be listed as research is completed. Local SUVCW Camps are encouraged to work with other organizations, the SUVCW National organization and the media for recognition and funding of suitable memorials or markers. A Last Soldier Ceremony may be conducted by SUVCW Camps at the gravesite of these veterans. Details are available on the SUVCW National Web site at suvcw.org/last/lastsoldier.htm.
If you have confirmed the last Civil War veteran to be buried in a Wisconsin county, and would like to submit your finding to this Web site, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include reference sources for your information. Often times, local newspaper articles confirm when the last Civil War soldier in a specific locale passed away.
