This project is designed to honor the man who started the GAR (Grand Army of Republic). Over the years the little to no maintenance has been given to the memorial. The Department of Illinois along with citizens from the city of Petersburg have decided to revitalize the memorial to Dr. Stephenson.

The Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War Preamble reads –
We, the descendants of soldiers, sailors, or marines who served in the Army or Navy of the United States of America during the War of the Rebellion of 1861 to 1865, have formed this patriotic and fraternal Order, for the purpose and objects in this Constitution set forth; and in so doing pledge ourselves to commemorate our fathers' deeds; to render loyal service to our Country, and to promote the maintenance of unqualified American citizenship with respect for and honor to the flag.

By honoring deserving cadets, we help promote the maintenance of unqualified American citizenship because it will be these young people who will eventually serve in our Nation’s military, under the flag our forefathers fought to preserve.
