Group Description

Welcome to the Willie Grout, Camp 25, Department of Massachusetts, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War. The Camp is located in Worcester.

The Willie Grout Camp, Sons of Veterans, began on January 13, 1894 in Brinley Hall (the first G.A.R. Post 10 hall) located on Main Street in Worcester, Massachusetts. There, a committee met and voted for the first time on taking part in one of the newest movements of organizing camps.

In Burwood Hall on February 12, 1894 (Abraham Lincoln's birthday), Camp officers were elected and the camp was officially named Willie Grout in honor of the first soldier from Worcester to die in the Civil War.
