AbstractThe Woman's Relief Corps was the women's auxiliary group of the Grand Army of the Republic. It was established in 1883 as a social, civic, and patriotic organization to foster social improvements and to generate and sustain community appreciation for the sacrifice of those patriots who had died to preserve the Union. Among the Corps' activities were: child welfare work, such as school shoe drives; receptions for GAR dignitaries; and flag presentations to schools, clubs, and Old Soldiers' Homes.
