Many of the GAR halls were decorated like elaborate shrines. To those veterans, saving the Union was a holy enterprise. Decorations in the hall were treated almost like holy relics.
Thanks for this. I did a little more reading about GAR's and I can see they were grand events with marvellous exhibits of medals, ribbons and Civil War specific paraphernalia and trappings. And they were very well attended.
