On February 26, 1865, the Ladies’ Union Association reorganized to focus on the freedmen. Emilie continued to be affiliated with the Association until at least 1867. Lizzie Brown, who served as LUA secretary, visited Emilie on several occasions in 1863, and Emilie retained close friendships with others in the association.
