Detroit’s Grand Army of the Republic building has fostered thousands of stories over its 100+ year history. We take immeasurable pride in renovating the Detroit Grand Army of the Republic building, where the veterans of the Civil War and the Battle of Gettysburg, met regularly and recounted those three bloody days in July, 1863.
It is our goal to perpetuate those memories of the men who wore the blue uniform of the Union army and later of the Grand Army of the Republic for future generations.
Happy Veterans Day!!!
