Soldiers' St. Louis Directory

1863
MHM Archives

Published by the St. Louis branch of the United States Christian Commission, this pamphlet would have been handed out to soldiers sent to St. Louis, most for medical treatment. This leaflet is a guide to important locations in the city, with an invitation to the Christian Commission’s daily prayer meeting on the back. It is an example of meeting the practical needs of the soldier and furthering with the evangelical bent of many aid societies.
