THE RI GAR
CIVIL WAR VETERAN FLAG HOLDER
PROTECTED UNDER RHODE ISLAND LAW
NOT FOR SALE
FOR "RI GAR" CIVIL WAR VETERAN GRAVES ONLY
Please Respect R.I. GAR Grave Flag Holder Lest We Forget

YOU SEE THEM IN CEMETERIES IN YOUR COMMUNITY
AND
THROUGHOUT OUR STATE

The "Rhode Island" Grand Army of the Republic Flag Holder - Civil War Grave Marker, is placed only on the graves of all R.I. Civil War Veterans who were also members of the R.I. GAR.    It was originally designed, patented, and approved by the R.I. GAR, in 1889.    For over 70 years the various chapters of the Rhode Island Allied Orders of the GAR raised all the funds necessary to mark all the GAR graves in the entire State.    All the RI GAR Flag Markers were manufactured by the Jenks Foundry of Pawtucket, R.I.    The Jenks Foundry (iron works) was owned by the Jenks Family.    Major Henry F. Jenks was mostly in charge of the family business.    Major Henry F. Jenks was a GAR Veteran of the 2nd R.I. Volunteer Infantry during the Civil War.    He served under Lieutenant Colonel Elisha Hunt Rhodes.    After the war he Jenks became a member of R.I. GAR Levi Tower Post No.17 located in Pawtucket.    Jenks served as R.I. Department GAR Commander in 1882 and worked many years with the Allied Orders of the GAR to make sure the graves of all the RI GAR Civil were properly marked.

The RI GAR flag holder or flag marker was placed to the left side of all cemetery stones, faced in the same direction of each stone marked.    The front of the marker depicts the GAR emblem.    The back of the marker depicts a design of all the Union Army Corps Badges and the U.S. Navy symbol arranged in a circular pattern.    As the legal successor to the R.I. GAR, all markers today are the exclusive property of the R.I. Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War and the veterans and GAR Posts the marker honors in all locations throughout the State.    The R.I. Department SUVCW Graves Registration Officer, as well as the Graves Registration Officers of each R.I. SUVCW Camp within the Department, continuously monitor the condition and replacement of all R.I. GAR markers in the all cemeteries in the State.    They are no longer being manufactured.    Today the flag markers are considered sacred monuments to be used only for the flagging purposes by the Order every Memorial Day.    All the markers are made of iron and if restored should only be painted black or dark brown---never silver, gold or any other color.    Rellic dealers and antique collectors beware: The copy and/or sale of the "R.I. GAR Grave Marker" is illegal.    The usage, trade or sale of the RI GAR flag marker for any other purpose other than to mark the graves and monuments of R.I. GAR Civil War Veterans is prohibited under Rhode Island law.    The SUVCW monitors this item closely.    In many states, unlawful posession of it is a felony.
