The business meeting will begin at 10 am in the meeting room, followed by the featured presentation in the theatre at 10:30 am. The program titled Last Man Standing in Bayfield County: David Monroe Civil War Veteran, will be presented by Sam Solberg, Kathy Rewalt, and Dick Rewalt. During 2019, the Sons of the Union Veterans of the Civil War (SUVCW) of Wisconsin, continued a campaign started in 2003, to honor the last Civil War Veteran to pass away in each county by creating a special grave marker. In Bayfield County, that Civil War Veteran was Corporal David A. Monroe who had served in the 20th New York Cavalry. He was born in Canada and moved to New York as a child, enlisting in Company “M” of the 20th New York Cavalry at age 16 in July 1863. He participated in several battles around Washington D. C. and Virginia. Monroe mustered out in the summer of 1865. After the war, he spent a season sailing on the Great Lakes, then working in the lumber industry in Michigan. He came to Washburn in 1902, and continued in lumbering until end of World War I, employed as a timber cruiser in WI and MN for the late John A. Jacobs. He outlived three wives and raised four children and one stepchild. David Monroe, the last Civil War veteran of Chequamegon Bay area died at age 98 on March 8th 1945, and was buried in Washburn. The presentation will include video of the cemetery ceremony performed by the SUVCW, local VFW and American Legion participants.
