About the Union League
One of the city's most exclusive institutions, the Union League was founded during the Civil War in 1863 by a group of concerned and influential citizens, to aid President Abraham Lincoln in his quest to preserve the Union. Over the past 140 years, the club has quietly rendered distinguished service to the nation. During the Civil War it raised and funded three volunteer regiments. The Sanitary Fair (a major fund raising effort for the war) was directed by club members and held outside the club house, at that time located in Union Square. Union League Club members were instrumental in establishing The Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1870. They played an essential role in the founding of the American Red Cross (an outgrowth of the Sanitary Commission), as well as to help to erect both the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor and the Lincoln Monument in Union Square. They were also the driving force that ended the ongoing corruption that festering within the circles of Boss Tweed and Tammany Hall.
Many prominent civic, state and national leaders have enjoyed membership in the ULC, including fifteen presidents, many senators and congressmen, cabinet members, diplomats, and scores of CEO's of major corporations. J. Pierpont Morgan was a regular during the 19th century, along with John Jay, William Cullen Bryant, Chester Arthur, and Thomas Nast. Emanuel Leutze, who painted Washington Crossing the Delaware, was a member and the famous work was exhibited at the Sanitary Fair. Theodore Roosevelt managed his early political career from the Club's chambers and chose them as a place to hold interrogations during the time in which he served as New York's Chief of Police.
Today one of the primary focuses of the Club is the well being of our military veterans.
I am looking forward to my annual trek to Greenwich, CT to exhibit at Antiquarius, a longstanding, high quality show that features 42 distinguished dealers from across America and beyond..
