The Auxiliary to Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War is the female counterpart to the SUVCW. The women of the Auxiliary strive to keep alive the memories of our ancestors and their sacrifices for the maintenance of the Union; to aid in caring for helpless and disabled Veterans; to properly observe Memorial Day. You can learn more about the mission of the ASUVCW at our national website at www.asuvcw.org.
