Mondays with Mundy Union League Presidential Portraits 12-12-2022

For the Legacy Foundation's Mondays with Mundy this week Historian Jim Mundy tells the story of the portrait collection of Union League Presidents. In 1889, the Union League Board of Directors decreed that every President of The Union League of Philadelphia shall have their portrait hang in the League House. This week, the 72nd portrait will be unveiled, of current outgoing Union League President Craig D. Mills. This is one of the great customs of Union League presidential culture, a dinner at the end of their presidency, to celebrate their leadership and unveil their portrait. Jim explores the history and development of this collection, which remarkably makes up about 25% of the entire art collection - and highlights a few of the portraits in particular.

Civil War Round Table: The Crooked Path to Abolition: Abraham Lincoln & the Antislavery Constitution

This past Monday, the Legacy Foundation hosted a Civil War Round Table Program on "The Crooked Path to Abolition: Abraham Lincoln & the Antislavery Constitution" with James Oaks. Lincoln adopted the antislavery view that the Constitution made freedom the rule in the United States, slavery the exception. Where federal power prevailed, so did freedom. Where state power prevailed, that state determined the status of slavery, and the federal government could not interfere. It would take state action to achieve the final abolition of American slavery. With this understanding, Lincoln and his allies used every tool available to undermine the institution. Wherever the Constitution empowered direct federal action, they intervened. In 1849, Congressman Lincoln sponsored a bill to abolish slavery in Washington, DC. In 1854, he reentered politics to oppose the Kansas-Nebraska Act to further fight for abolition. Author James Oakes, American historian and Distinguished Professor at the CUNY Graduate Center will detail how President Lincoln took full advantage of the antislavery options opened by the Civil War, until the successful state ratification of the constitutional amendment in 1865 to finally abolish slavery.

Local Thanksgiving celebrations were common from the time of the early settlements of Plymouth and elsewhere in North America, however, it was not a national holiday until 1863, when buoyed by recent Union victories in Vicksburg and Gettysburg. Lincoln issued his historic Thanksgiving proclamation setting the last Thursday of November “as a day of Thanksgiving,” further adding to Lincoln’s enduring legacy.

OCTOBER 3, 1863
The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to pe*****te and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God…

It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States,…to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens… In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States to be affixed.

By President Abraham Lincoln

Public Affairs: "The 2022 Midterms: Post-election Analysis" with David Castagnetti and Bruce Mehlman

Earlier this week, the Legacy Foundation hosted a Public Affairs program on "The 2022 Midterms: Post-election Analysis" with David Castagnetti and Bruce Mehlman. It has been decades since a mid-term election was so anticipated. On the Federal level, both Houses are in play. A change in party leadership in the Senate could have implications on the Supreme Court that could last for decades. In Pennsylvania, the Governorship and a Senate seat will be hotly contested. Join Washington insiders Bruce Mehlman and David Castagnetti for an insightful discussion about the election results and what it will mean for policy, politics and the future of America. Bruce Mehlman is a highly sought-after keynote speaker on policy and political trends. His quarterly infographic analyses are consistently picked-up by national media and eagerly consumed by tens of thousands of readers around the world. David Castagnetti is an expert on communications, legislative and regulatory matters, and helps organizations think through integration of environmental, social, and governance factors. His leadership has been recognized by publications such as BusinessWeek, Washingtonian Magazine, The Hill, and Congressional Quarterly.

Liberty Series: "The Supreme Court: Cases, Challenges and Politics of the 2022-23 Term" - Discussion

On Monday, November 7, The Union League Legacy Foundation hosted a discussion program on "The Supreme Court: Cases, Challenges and Politics of the 2022-23 Term." The 2021-22 Supreme Court term was one of the most important terms in recent history. Unprecedented leaks, a new justice, and important, historic decisions peppered this past term. The coming 2022-23 may be just as newsworthy. John Yoo, Emanuel S. Heller Professor of Law at University of California, hosts two leading legal experts, Michael Gerhardt, Samuel Ashe Distinguished Professor of Constitutional Law at the University of North Carolina School, and Judge Janice Rogers Brown, former Circuit Judge for the United States Court of Appeals in the District of Colombia, for a discussion about the United States Supreme Court. What is the lasting impact of this past year, legally and politically? Does the Dobbs opinion leak and the increasing ideological divide in court threaten the civility of the court? What are the most important cases upcoming? And what does the future of the court look like?

The Union League Legacy Foundation has commissioned a new portrait of Lucretia Coffin Mott (1793-1880), an abolitionist and ally of The Union League of Philadelphia during the Civil War.

This new portrait of Lucretia Mott will serve as a reminder of the important, and often overlooked, role that women played in the League and our nation’s history to form a more perfect Union. The portrait commission, awarded to internationally recognized figurative artist Joshua LaRock, will be unveiled in December 2022 and displayed in the Broad Street hallway of the League House.

This morning, October 29, The Union League Legacy Foundation hosted Frederick Douglass’ great-great grandson Kevin Douglass Greene in Lincoln Memorial. Kevin Douglass Greene spoke on the Frederick Douglass Family Initiatives, which advocates for a more equitable world and the education of students by donating 1 million copies of The Narrative of Frederick Douglass, at no cost to the youth. On the importance of education, Douglass Greene referenced his great-great grandfather’s story, saying “it just took a spark” for Frederick Douglass to begin educating himself and later escape from slavery. Later in life, Frederick Douglass worked closely with The Union League as a recruiter for The Union Army. Thank you to Kevin Douglass Green for joining us for this exciting event!

What is the point of these "posters" being put on city trash cans? Is this even a legitimate event? Or is this "exhibit" merely an elaborate front for a scheme to convince Philadelphia voters to throw their ballots in the trash?

What are you doing to remove these ads which clearly appear to be a blatant attempt at criminal voter fraud by trying to convince Philadelphia voters to put their ballots in the trash?
