Members of the Camp #15, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, perform a ceremony June 8 to recognize Charles P. Schneider, the last Civil War soldier to be buried in Grant County. The organization, which was formed in the 1880s by the children of Civil War veterans, has been working to mark the graves of the last soldier buried in every county in the country, with Wisconsin looking to be the first state completed.
