Seattle's Civil War Legacy presents the history of Seattle's Civil War veterans. Over 2500 Civil War veterans resided in Seattle and King County area in the decades following the Civil War. Each of these veterans have their own individual history but there is also a greater collective history of this generation of veterans who came to Seattle. These men helped build the city both literally and figuratively. The mission of SCWL is the study and sharing of that history by way of written articles, video, public history and tours.
