The Society of the Dames of the Loyal Legion is composed of the wives, mothers, daughters and widows of the original members of the Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States, the daughters of the descendants of said companions who have attained the age of eighteen years, the widows of officers who were not members of the Military Order of the Loyal Legion, but who were eligible as such, the daughters of such deceased officers, and the daughters of the descendants of said officers in lineal descent from the deceased eligible officer.
The object for which it is formed is to foster the spirit of patriotism and to cherish the memory of those men and women whose distinguished service during the Civil War so largely aided in preserving the integrity of the Government of the United States of America.
The society was organized on April 29, 1915, with six charter members. It now numbers thrity-four. At every monthly meeting new applications are filed and the enthusiasm of the members continues unabated.
Our affiliation with the San Francisco City and County Federation of Women's Clubs, in September, 1917, has been the means of bringing our society into contact with other organizations, with decided benefit. Through the Federation conventions much has been learned, and they have been of great assistance in carrying out the object of our society, and enabling us to do out part in all movements for the benefit of our city.
