The Last Four Stars and the 150th Anniversary of the Grand Army of the Republic: Their history and how they influenced our Veteran’s Today

On Saturday, August 20, 2016 at the American Civil War Memorial, corner of Washington and Locust Streets, Waterloo, NY, starting at 11:00 am, its sculptor will gold guilt the last four stars inscribed during this year’s Celebrate Commemorate Memorial Day’s Reconciliation Program held at the memorial site.

Pietro del Fabro will be available for discussion as he gold guilts the stars on the memorial’s Star Stone. The last four stars were incised by interpreters representing: Frederick Douglass, for the end of slavery, General Lee, the Confederate losses, Sojourner Truth for her support of Women’s Rights and finally, President Grant for the future of America. There will be a total of 620 Gold Guilt stars on the Star Stone that day, each star commemorating 1,000 lives lost during the Civil War.

After the gold guilting, Waterloo’s Mary Gahan Tent 109 of the Daughters of the Unioin Veterans of the Civil War, 1861-1865 will host a Session on the 150th Anniversary of the founding of the Grand Army of the Republic. This session will take place at the recently build Docent Cabin on the memorial’s property by Eagle Scout, Nathaniel Bauder. All are welcome to attend.
