The Mission of the Illinois Women’s Military and Civilian Memorial is to make visible the contribution of Illinois Women, both military and civilian, who served with and in support of the armed services.

A significant part of this project is to establish a registry of current and former Illinois women who served their country from the time of the Civil War to present. The registry will be the foundation for an historical archive that does not currently exist.
