The Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) was a fraternal organization composed of veterans of the Union Army who had served in the American Civil War. The GAR was among the first organized interest groups in American politics. It was succeeded by the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War (SUVCW). New Hampshire has 94 GAR Posts and most had a Sons of Veteran's Camp. Today all GAR posts are gone and only 5 Sons of Union Veteran's Camps remain.
