Welcome to our website!

We all have important values and ideas, things we care about and want to share. Sometimes we feel our ideas can even change the world, and we want to let other people know how they can join in and make all our lives better.

This site will present our organization's cause or ideas to the world. As communicating isn't always easy, we'll try to include photos and images that convey our message. We'll also include specific information about our organization and its members, so no one forgets the people behind the pictures.

 

Mission Statement

To locate and record every American Civil War Veteran who served for The State of Rhode Island. To insure that their memory and deeds are never forgotten. To provide information and education to all who are learning from the past.
 Many men served our state during the ACW (over 23,000) to date we have only located and recorded @8,200. As you can see we have a lot of work to do. Finding grave locations that have been moved & destroyed by land owners and contractors makes this task even more difficult if not impossible, but that is why we try to get the word out to the people of Rhode Island and the world about what it is we are trying to accomplish.
