The Philadelphia Club was one of the most famous and first of the Union League men's clubs established in the US during the 1860s. Initially established in support of the Civil War, they later expanded to included other philanthropic works. Although most of the Union Leagues faded with the times, the exclusive Philadelphia club remains active. This book offers a survey through 1902.
