The Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United
States (MOLLUS) is the nation's oldest Civil War society,
founded April 15, 1865 in Philadelphia by Union officers
who pledged their loyalty and allegiance to the Federal
government in the dark hours following the assassination
of President Lincoln. The contemporary Military Order of
the Loyal Legion of the United States perpetuates that
tradition, promoting popular interest and scholarship
in the Civil War and Abraham Lincoln.
