The Grand Army of the Republic (The G.A.R. - Civil War Veterans)This picture was taken during the 1909 reunion of the Civil War veterans of the 21st Regiment, Connecticut Volunteers (“The Gallant Old Regiment”).

Those who came for this, their fortieth reunion, marched from the railroad station to the Grand Army of the Republic Hall. The May 16th reunion was also the anniversary of the 1864 Battle of Drury’s Bluff in which the regiment had played a prominent part. May 23, 2013 Pic of the Week.
