Veterans Formed Groups-- Part 2

UNION VETERANS LEAGUE

Founded in Pittsburgh in 1884 for those who had served at least three years in Union forces, or two years if wounded.

General John H. Short of the Union Veterans League visited the Lemont Post of the GAR in 1889 to make arrangements for a national reunion in Newark, Ohio.

I had never heard of this veterans organization before, so will have to do more research.
