 Our Purpose / Mission

The Taylor-Wilson Camp 10 is a heritage group.  We are primarily interested in identifying and preserving the memory of the 'Boys in Blue" of the American Civil War.  To accomplish this the Taylor-Wilson Camp seeks to identify the burial location of Union soldiers, who died as the result of the war and also those of soldiers who took up residence in the Lynchburg area following the war.  Additionally the camp works to mark the significant sites of Union activity, such as the Lynchburg prisoner of war camp, which existed on what is now the site of E.C. Glass High School.

     In addition to the items discussed above our camp works directly and in cooperation with other heritage groups and historic sites to preserve the history of our nation.  Taylor-Wilson is dedicated to educating the public on the lasting legacy of the Civil War on the development of America. 


Taylor-Wilson Camp 10 petitioned for membership in the Sons of Union veterans in May of 2005 and received its charter from the National organization of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War on 19 November 2005
