South Dakota's Civil War Veterans

Telling the Stories of South Dakota's Civil War Veterans 

The latest installment of Images of the Past explores the impact that Civil War veterans had on South Dakota, from Territorial times to the present day. We are also inviting the public to share their stories here. 

SDPB’s Images of the Past is a multiplatform project that offers a fresh look at historic images and documents from the well-known and nearly unknown places, people, and events of South Dakota.

Tell Us YOUR Family's Civil War Story!

As part of our efforts to uncover the stories of South Dakota's Civil War veterans, we are asking for the public's help.  Please consider sharing your family's story with us either on our Images of the Past Facebook group or privately via email to Images of the Past producer Brian Gevik at


Thank you for being a part of the project!
