Lincoln's Birthday, Seattle 1921

101 years ago, on this very same evening, the Union Civil War veterans of the John F Miller post Grand Army of the Republic and the women of the Miller Post Woman's Relief Corps gathered at Seattle's Armory building for an event to commemorate the birthday of Abraham Lincoln.

February 19, 1921 at 8pm, the GAR veterans and the ladies of the WRC met in "Veterans' Hall" at the Seattle Armory building which was located at Western Ave and Lenora just north of the Pike Place Market.
