GAR Encampment Reenactment and Monument Dedication
West Union, Iowa
May 30 – June 1, 2008
Abernethy Camp 48 in West Union will be hosting a ‘reenactment’ of the G.A.R. Veteran Reunions which were held in West Union for many years. This will be an encampment on the Fayette County Courthouse lawn. We will set-up camp Saturday morning and conclude Sunday morning. There will be a community Sunday morning worship on the grounds and a dedication to follow.
Sunday, June 1, Abernethy Camp 48 will re-dedicate the West Union Veterans’ Monument at 12 noon. The monument is currently under restoration. This will be an extension of the G.A.R Encampment on the Fayette County Courthouse grounds, and will follow the original dedication of 1914 as close as possible. We will march from the Courthouse grounds to the cemetery for the re-dedication.
