Abstract

In this work I examined the Ladies Union Aid Society as an example of the female benevolent movement during the Civil War. The Ladies Union Aid Society (LUAS) was an organization that focused on supporting the Union cause financially and through charity. I used a variety of primary and secondary sources, notably the Missouri Historical Society’s wealth of primary sources including newspapers and letters from the period.
