Abstract

On July 4, 1915, a group of women in Washington, D.C. formed the Women’s Section of the Navy League. The League hoped to band women of various philosophical backgrounds under the banner of “Patriotism, Americanism, and National Defense.” The function of a Comforts Committee was to knit woolen garments for men serving in the United States Navy.
