The United States Colored Troops (USCT) Memorial Monument Committee of the Unified Committee for Afro-American Contributions (UCAC) is sponsoring a winter/ spring fundraising campaign and asking for your generous donations to erect a memorial monument to honor USCT.
It will be located in John G. Lancaster Park in Lexington Park, MD. The monument will honor USCT and all Union soldiers and sailors from St. Mary's County who fought during the Civil War.
It will pay particular tribute to James H. Harris and William H. Barnes, Medal of Honor recipients (1864) from St. Mary's County. This project is being sponsored in partnership with the newly formed chapter of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, James H. Harris Camp #38.
Levels of giving in our donor/sponsorship program start at the bronze level of $125 and move up to the platinum/Congressional level of $25,000. Depending on the levels of giving donors/sponsors receive collectible challenge coins that show replicas of the monument, listings and ads in the monument dedication book, wall plaques of recognition and/or plaques of recognition to be placed on the monument pedestals.
Any and all donations will be appreciated. Your tax deductible donation can be made by contacting us or visiting our website at www.ucaconline.org. (UCAC 501(c)(3) Tax deductible organizations
