#OnThisDay in history, Harriet Beecher Stowe was born in Litchfield, Connecticut in 1811. She died in 1896 and is remembered as one of the most influential abolitionist authors of the 19th century. Her best-selling book, "Uncle Tom’s Cabin," an anti-slavery novel containing vivid descriptions of the sufferings and oppression of enslaved African Americans in the United States. is the work that she is perhaps most well known for.

The book provoked a storm of protest and is often credited for being one of the many catalyst of the Civil War.

On this day in 1866, the #GrandArmyoftheRepublic, the powerful grouping of United States Armed Forces (Union) Veterans of the Civil War, was formed by Dr. Benjamin Stephenson in Decatur, Illinois. By 1890, the number of participating former Union soldiers would number around 409,489 veteran members. Membership was limited to honorably discharged veterans of the Union Army, Navy, Marine Corps or the Revenue Cutter Service who had served between April 12, 1861 and April 9, 1865. The GAR founded soldiers’ homes, was active in relief work and in pension legislation. Five members were elected President of the United States and, for a time, it was impossible to be nominated on the Republican ticket without the endorsement of the GAR voting block. In 1868, Commander-in-Chief John A. Logan issued General Order No. 11 calling for all Departments and Posts to set aside the 30th of May as a day for remembering the sacrifices of fallen comrades, thereby beginning the celebration of Memorial Day.

The Sons Of Union Veterans Of The Civil War is pleased to bring you another installment of a months-long initiative called "the Commander-in-Chief is Reading". This initiative draws on a list of books that our Commander-In-Chief Brother Brian C. Pierson will be reading during 2021. The objective of the initiative is to further the educational role of Our Order, with the aim of helping Brothers and friends become better advocates of good citizenship, become more familiar with the true history of the Civil War, advocate leadership within our communities, and reinforce American values. Brother Pierson’s selection this week is entitled “History of the Grand Army of the Republic” and is written by Robert Burns Beath. Stop by a bookstore, local library or browse online to pickup a copy today and let us know what you think of the selection after you read it in the comments below.

NEWS FROM THE GEN. LOGAN MUSEUM – FROM OUR COLLETIONS

The Museum’s latest acquisition is an early 20th century post card of “Logan’s Bed.” The post card appears to date from the 1900-1920 period. It shows Logan’s 400 pound walnut bed in what seems to be a museum setting. (Notice there is no mattress, a framed photo of Logan above the bed and something is on display at the foot of the bed.)

It is believed that the bed was sold at auction in Carbondale when the Logan family moved from there to Chicago in 1871 after his election to the U.S. Senate.

It is not known if this bed has survived to the present but it would be a great find for the museum.

Our Brothers from across the nation are saddened by the news that current Department of Massachusetts Commander, Brother Stuart “Chip” Chambers passed away on February 3rd, 2021. Brother Chambers is the first Department Commander in recent memory to pass away while actively performing the duties and responsibilities of his office. In honor and recognition of Brother Chambers, The Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War has requested that the Charters of all Departments and Camps will be draped in black. In addition, Brothers will attach a black mourning ribbon to their membership badges for the next thirty days. Our thoughts and prayers are with our Brothers in the Department of Massachusetts, and with Brother Chambers friends and family during this difficult time.

For more information on the General Order honoring Brother Chambers, and other orders issued please visit our website at: http://www.suvcw.org/?page_id=513
