The last survivor - Gettysburg
The monument to the Grand Army of the Republic and Albert Woolson, 'the last survivor,' stands near the Cyclorama at Gettysburg. Woolson did not fight at Gettysburg - he entered the war as a drummer boy in the West - but was the last remaining Union soldier from the war at the time of his death in 1956.
