Grand Army of the Republic an early organization for veterans of Civil War

One of the stained glass panels of Blanchester’s Grace United Methodist church. This grouping is dedicated “In Memory of the Heroes of ’61-’65” in honor of the soldiers of the Civil War. If you look closely at the middle of the center window you will see a G.A.R. (Grand Army of the Republic) symbol. At the very top of the grouping is a beautifully designed eagle with flags theme.
