The Clayton County Monument project was completed with great personal effort in time and money by the members of the 49th!
This is another tangible example of our stated mission…we are NOT a paper unit, but an active, hard-working, committed group of men.
I am a proud member of an organization who remembers those who have served & are serving today.

Wow!

A very impressive day of service at Lineville Methodist Church!
I want to thank all the Riflemen who made the trip to save the beautiful G.A.R. stained glass window from demolition.
A fantastic job, ‘Boys’…Well Done, Brothers!
You make me proud to be part of this honorable group!

Horrific number in modern context:

625,000 lives were extinguished in the four years of our civil war.

If that number would be transposed to the population of the United States today, that would be 5 million deaths in four years.
