Philadelphia Union League

The Union League in Philadelphia still stands today. I had the pleasure of going there last winter for a luncheon. It is right near City Hall on Broad Street. The nice thing about it is they still have a dress code and a jacket and tie are required most of the time.

It was founded in 1862 to support the Union and policies Abraham Lincoln’s policies. My grandfather was a member here when it was men only. Now, women can be members here as well. It is a really nice historical building that stands out in the hustle and bustle of downtown.
