Preserving the Memory of the Grand Army of the Republic and our Ancestors who Fought to Preserve the Union 1861 - 1865

The Gov. Crapo (pronounced Cray'-po) Camp No. 145 of Flint is named in honor of the memory of the Grand Army of the Republic Post of that name. The Gov. Crapo Post No 145 was chartered on June 7, 1883 and ceased to exist in April 1937.

The current Gov. Crapo Camp No. 145, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, was chartered on October 14, 1992, by the National Organization, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War. It conducts meetings and activities throughout the year. More information about Camp meeting times, activities, and locations can be found on our Events Calendar or on the scroller above.

Camp Commander Lloyd Lamphere offers his warm invitation to visitors and fellow members of the Allied Orders of the Grand Army of the Republic who wish to attend. A listing of Camp Officer contacts can be found at Headquarters, and you can find more information about the Camp at our History link. You can also find out how to join us at the Membership link, which contains a downloadable fill-in application in PDF format.

The Camp supports a number of community Projects designed to help preserve the memory of the Grand Army of the Republic and the history of the American Civil War. The members of the Camp are actively involved in graves registration, recording the names and locations of Civil War era Veterans buried in Genesee and Lapeer Counties in Michigan. Members of the Camp also participate in educational experiences appearing as guest speakers, assisting in the research of the American Civil War, and being involved in living history events. The Gov. Crapo Camp Guard participates in ceremonies that commemorate the sacrifices made by the veterans of the Union Army, Navy, Marines and Revenue Cutter Service during the Civil War.
