This badge is for the Iowa Woman's Relief Corps (W. R. C.), a club that originated in 1879 as a secret society of women in Massachusetts that were going to remain loyal to the North during and after the Civil War. There were only two qualifications to join the corps: ability to prove loyalty to the north, and to be a woman. It did not matter where the members lived because there were several different posts across the United States. It also did not matter the color of her skin, many posts included African American Women as members. In 1883, the W. R. C. was formally recognized and accepted as a legit society. This badge was given to a delegate to wear during the 37th National Convention in Columbus, Ohio from September 9-11, 1919. 1977.27.1 (Badge, Ephemera) image
