Civil War Veterans Historical Association – “The 4th Battalion” Preserving the memory of Union & Confederate Veterans and Auxiliary Organizations by Dave Maloney

CWVHA Newsletter ArchiveI’m Dave Maloney. From July 1990 through December 1994 I was Associate Editor responsible for the layout/design of “The Veteran”, the newsletter of the Civil War Veterans Historical Association (CWVHA) – which I joined in 1987. Editors during my tenure as Assoc. Editor were Marshall Brighenti and, later, Rance Hulshart.

I saved copies of “The Veteran”. I also acquired photocopies of earlier issues of the CWVHA’s newsletter which was then called “The 4th Battalion”.

In addition, I obtained photocopies of Roger Heiple’s info-packed newsletters that he personally published from 1980-1989. His newsletter was entitled “The Great Republic – the Official National Organ of the G.A.R. Historian & Collectors”.

On this site, I am posting (in .pdf format) an archive of scanned images of those fine publications. I am indebted to all those who contributed to these publications. Their efforts made my collecting experience much more meaningful. But moreover, their efforts helped me better understand the Veteran and how the GAR, the UCV, and their related Auxiliary and Allied Orders cared for veterans, widows and orphans and helped mold our country for nearly one hundred post-war years.
