The Great Central Fair, held on Logan Square, had a similar Gothic appearance, the waving flags, the huge central hall, the “curiosities” and relics, handmade and industrial exhibits, and also a visit from the President and his family, provided a creative and communal means for ordinary citizens to promote the welfare of Union soldiers and dedicate themselves to the survival of the nation.
