Women's Relief Corps
A few years after the founding of the Grand Army of the Republic posts, a women's auxiliary of each post was formed. These auxiliaries were chartered as Women's Relief Corps and had as their mission the organization of the mothers, sisters, wives and daughters of Civil war veterans, thus to bring them into closer friendships and assist the ex-soldiers in the maintenance of their organizations. Later, membership in the Women's Relief Corps was no longer limited to relatives of veterans.
