About this collection

This collection contains various records, documents, and other items related to the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) in Harrison County, Indiana. The GAR was a post Civil War era fraternal organization of Union veterans. The organization formed in 1866 and developed state level "Departments" and community level "Posts" throughout the country. The GAR began in Indiana in 1866 and reached its membership height in the state around 1890. Several GAR Posts existed in Harrison County. Enrollment faded as veterans passed away, and the GAR dissolved in the mid-1950s
