The Last Soldier project marries the efforts of the SUVCW's grave registration and Monument restoration programs. The objective of the SUVCW's Monuments and Memorials Grant Fund is to restore and preserve Civil War Monuments.
The Last Soldier project is funded, in part, by the SUVCW's Monuments and Memorials Grant Fund and also by obtaining contributions of the citizens, local veteran organizations and governmental agencies. For more information, please visit the SUVCW Last Soldier page.
