John S. Allanson was a member of G.A.R. Post 77 in Le Sueur, MN in 1884. He was a resident of Henderson and served in the 2nd Regiment Massachusetts Volunteer Heavy Artillery and 1st NY Volunteer Engineer Regiment.
Emerging as most influential among the various organizations during the first post-war years, was the "Grand Army of the Republic", founded on April 6, 1866, on the principles of "Fraternity, Charity and Loyalty," in Decatur, Illinois. The G.A.R. initially grew and prospered as a "de facto" political arm of the Republican Party during the heated political contests of the Reconstruction era. With the exception of Hawaii, every state had GAR "posts" (forerunners of modern American Legion Halls or VFW Halls), even those of the former Confederacy.
Le Sueur is a city in Le Sueur and Sibley counties in the U.S. state of Minnesota, between Mankato and the Twin Cities.
The 2nd Regiment Massachusetts Volunteer Heavy Artillery was a regimental unit that fought in the American Civil War from 1863 to 1865.
The 1st New York Volunteer Engineer Regiment was an engineer regiment that served in the Union Army during the American Civil War.
