The Grand Army of the Republic or GAR was formed in Decatur, Illinois in
1866 by Benjamin F. Stephenson. It was the largest organization of
Union veterans of the Civil War. The organization promoted comradeship
among veterans, worked to increase pensions and assist war widows and
orphans, and maintained retirement homes for old soldiers. In 1868, the
commander in chief of the GAR and Civil War General John Alexander Logan
inaugurated the observance of Memorial Day to honor fallen soldiers.
Membership in the staunchly Republican organization peaked at more than
409,000 in 1890. The last member died in 1955, and the GAR was
discontinued in 1956. The Women's Relief Corp and Ladies of the GAR were
initiated through the GAR, as well as organizations for sons and
daughters of veterans.
Following the Civil War, the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) was
created to promote the welfare and a powerful lobby for Veteran's rights
and increased benefits.
