Broadside for Soldiers Aid

19. A Soldiers' Aid Benefit, 1862

The Concord Soldiers' Aid Society was established in 1861 to provide care packages for soldiers in the Concord Artillery. The society soon expanded its mission to include all soldiers served by the United States Sanitary Commission. Some of its meetings were held in the Town House, as were fundraising events for it. This broadside advertises a benefit theatrical entertainment.
