Boonsboro Republican Club

The understated request for help for a meeting on August 25, 1900, and the lack of mention of the meeting in the September minutes, is worth noting. The event itself was covered by the Hagerstown Morning Herald, August 27, 1900, which described it as "a rousing Republican Rally. Big crowds gather to hear the issues of the campaign addressed." It was a "monster rally held under the auspices of the Republican club. Brass bands and shouting thousands brimming with enthusiasm early filling the hall and gathered in the streets around it for 3 hours when the speech making was in process". Senator McComas and Congressman Pierre were the speakers, as General Grosvenor was unable to attend. Major Pierce introduced the speakers.
