63rd VA Inf/54th VA Inf Descendants Association
Welcome to our website, it is still a work in progress so check back often. Feel free to navigate our site as we go. There will be a lot of information through out our homepage.
The Home Tab is where you are now.
The History Tab provides a brief history of the regiments and the reason they were combined in the association.
The Announcements Tab will hold any new information as it comes available.
The Roll Call Tab will take you to our descendant’s roll call of Honor pages where each member with their ancestor’s will be listed.
The Friends Tab will take you to a page where anyone who is not a descendant but contributes to the monument will be listed.
The Monument Page Tab this is where we will be putting a drawing of the monument and a graph illustrating the cost and our progress to that goal. Before we can add the drawing it has to be approved by the National Park Service and other Government Agencies Check back often and view our progress.
The Contact Us Tab will be for anyone with questions or comments. We will answer these questions in a timely manner. There is a link to an email address for your convience to contact us.
The store Tab is where you will find our on line store. There you will find the merchandise we sell as a fundraiser for the monument along with a donation button all of which can be paid through Paypal. We hope everyone will take advantage of this and help us toward our goal of building the monument.
The Honor Gallery Tab is a collection of pictures of our soldier's, it is our hope that as you browse this collection you will remember that these are the faces of the heroe's we are dedicated to remembering and honoring. If anyone has a picture of one of our soldier's not represented they can contact us at the email address located on the contact us page.
Our organization was formed to educate, preserve the history of, and honor the sacrifices and dedication of our ancestors. At this point no monument exists to honor the soldier’s of the 63rd and 54th regiments.
Anyone who is a descendant of a soldier of either regiment who wishes to join our association, please open and print the application by clicking the link in the contact us page, fill it out and send the application along with a check or money order for a one-time membership fee of $50.00 to the address provided below. A receipt will be returned to you for your records. Please provide ancestors name and which regiment they fought in. Also, any one who wishes to donate to our cause but is not a descendant can do likewise and a receipt will be mailed to you, and your information will be listed on this website under the Friends of the Monument section, to honor your support for our cause. Please include a self addressed stamped envelope for the return so we can keep our costs down and apply all proceeds towards the monument.
The goal is to have everything in place for the anniversary celebration in 2013 at the Chickamaugua Battlefield National Park.
