Welcome to CWVHA.org, home of “The 4th Battalion” — collectors and historians interested in the life and times of veterans of the American Civil War.

On April 25, 1987 while attending the Ohio Civil War Relic and Collectors Show in Ashland, Ohio, a small dedicated group of historians and collectors formed the “Civil War Veterans Historical Association.”

The organization’s primary purpose was then and continues to be in researching, collecting and preserving the history and material culture relating to Civil War veterans, both North and South. Areas of interest include unit reunions, auxiliary organizations, Grand Army of the Republic, United Confederate Veterans and all other Civil War veteran-related associations and societies.

The CWVHA ceased operations in May, 2014. A Tip-‘o-the-hat to those who helped to organize and educate today’s Civil War Veteran historians and collectors.
