Biographical/Historical Note

The National Woman's Christian Temperance Union (WCTU) was founded in Cleveland, Ohio, in November 1874 to protest in a non-violent manner the sale of alcoholic beverages. In an era when women and children had few protections under the law, the WCTU provided a way for women to stand together for a cause in which they believed.
