They believed that a grateful country would keep its promises with these men whenever an organized movement was set on foot in their behalf. So the Grand Army of the Republic was born, and once fairly established and cut loose from all political entanglements, found its mission clearly defined and pressing for attention.

Hastings; Officer of the Guard, James E. Hill; Sergeant-Major, Amos D. Jarvis; QuartermasterSer-geant, Richard M. O'Brien. Partly through disappointments resulting from an election of officers, but largely through local desire to have Posts established in other sections of the city, then less compact than now, two withdrawals from the Post occurred, having in view the formation of Posts in Old Cambridge and East Cambridge. Post 56 of Old Cambridge was the first of these to receive a charter. It bears the date June 26, 1868, and the signature of A. B. R. Sprague as Grand Commander. The name Charles B

Logan was agreed upon for the new organization, that distinguished general having recently deceased. The meeting nominated a list of officers.
