Concord (N. H.) Daily Patriot

By special invitation of the Rev. Mary Baker G. Eddy, the Memorial service of the E. E. Sturtevant Post, No. 2, G.A.R., together with the allied organizations, Woman's Relief Corps, Daughters of Veterans, Sons of Veterans, and the Spanish War Veterans, was held yesterday (Sunday) afternoon at 4.30, in First Church of Christ, Scientist. It is said to be the first time in the history of the Church in this country that such an event has occurred.

The Post, the Sons of Veterans, and the Spanish War Veterans assembled at Grand Army Hall and marched in a body to the church. The Woman's Relief Corps and the Daughters of Veterans assembled in the Reading Room of the church, and at 4.30 took their places in the auditorium. National tunes were played on the beautiful chimes of the church for half an hour preceding the service. As the Post was marching from headquarters, "Onward, Christian Soldiers" was played, and was continued on the organ as they went to their seats.

We'd love to hear from you!
