On May 15, 1865, the fair held by the Ladies’ Union Association finally took place after a month-long postponement due to the death of President Lincoln. The fair lasted two weeks and benefited sick and wounded colored soldiers. For more information, see entries and annotations for April 15 and April 16, 1865.
