The Gov. Crapo (pronounced Cray'-po) Camp No. 145 of Flint is named for the Grand Army of the Republic Post of that name. The Gov. Crapo Post No 145 was chartered on June 7, 1883. The Post was named for Henry H. Crapo, a resident of Flint, Michigan, and Governor of the State during the Civil War, from 1864 to 1868. It's membership was in excess of 500 Veterans, who had rendered honorable service to the United States during the War of the Rebellion.
The Post ceased to exist with the death of Comrade Theodore Burden, a Private of Company A, 15th Michigan Infantry Regiment, in April 1937, and closure of the Post and transfer of remaining member, Corydon E. Foote, Musician, Company F, 10th Michigan Infantry Regiment, to the Department of Michigan At Large. Comrade Foote died in 1943, the last remaining Civil War veteran from Genesee County.
