About the General Benjamin Pritchard Camp No. 20
The General Benjamin Pritchard Camp No. 20 received its charter November of 1983, and became the fourth SUVCW camp to be organized in Kalamazoo.
Camp No. 20 is involved in several projects, including graves registration, monument care and maintenance, school programs and the proper observance of Memorial Day. The Camp holds services at Riverside Cemetery on May 30th, and also participates in the Allegan parade on the Monday observance, where our Camp also serves as the honor guard at the cemetery services. Another ongoing project is the placement of government headstones on 73 unmarked graves on the Orcutt Post No. 79 GAR cemetery lots at Riverside Cemetery.
The Camp meets on the first Tuesday of the month, March through
November, at the Portage District Library, 300 Library Lane, Portage, Michigan 49002. Meetings start at 7:00 pm. We
invite you to join us in honoring our grandfathers, the men who
preserved the Union.
