Union League of Philadelphia [Contact Us]
1833-2010
Creator:
Union League of Philadelphia.
Extent: 1643 items
Founded in 1862 as a patriotic society to support the Union and the policies of President Abraham Lincoln, the Union League of Philadelphia laid the philosophical foundation of other Union Leagues across a nation torn by Civil War. From its founding to the present, the League has been a leading civic organization and has played an important role in the history of our country and the City of Philadelphia. Over the past 150 years, this service has ranged from raising troops during the Civil War and lobbying for enforcement of the ?freedom? amendments during Reconstruction, to feeding the hungry during the Great Depression, to finding jobs for returning veterans after World War II. The Union League archives houses a wide variety of records related to the general administration of the Union League, its mission, building and history. Additionally, researchers will find a small sampling of papers more generally related to the Civil War, including some letters written by Abraham Lincoln. Dating from 1833 to 2010, the collection holds architectural drawings; broadsides, circulars and other ephemera; clippings; correspondence; meeting minutes; photographs and drawings; and annual reports.
