RI Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, GOVERNORS ELISHA DYER CAMP No.7, is based in the City of Cranston, Rhode Island. This Web Page is posted on the Internet to honor the servicemen (all citizens of Cranston) who fought to preserve the Nation during the Great War of the Rebellion, 1861 to 1866.
The following is the Cranston Honor Roll of those who died during the Civil War. This page was inspired by the research of former Rhode Island Secretary of State, and honored member of Camp 7, Edward S. Inman, III. Under the leadership of Secretary of State Inman the Rhode Island State Archives generated a series of complete listings of fallen Rhode Islanders of the Civil War, each compiled by city and/or town. The 2009 Camp 7 Camp Commander and 2009 State Commandery Commander of RI MOLLUS, Gregg A. Mierka, PDC, compared the information about Cranston with his research and Camp material for the 100th Anniversary year of Camp 7 for the People of Cranston. Camp 7 Research References: 1893 Adjutant General's Report by Elisha Dyer; the R.I. Dept. GAR Encampment Proceedings (and Necrology Reports) 1867 to 1941; the Memoirs of R.I. Officers, 1867; the Descriptive Books of the R.I. Dept. GAR and SUVCW, 1866 to 1941; the R.I. State Archives Civil War Enlistment Data; and the Annual Reports of the State Board of Soldiers’ Relief as prescribed under Chapter 88, Generals Laws of the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations to the Rhode Island General Assembly December 30, 1905.
