The Young Men's Christian Associations of the United States and the British Provinces opened their national convention at the Clark Street Methodist Church in Chicago, Illinois and elected G.H. Stewart of Philadelphia as its chairman. Delegates from twelve states and the District of Columbia attended, together with representatives from Canada and Britain.  The YMCA's extensive work with the Union Army featured heavily in the reports.
