Bunker Hill Monument (and non-resistance)

Here is a brief article which notes that women have been induced to “get up” a fair for the completion of the Monument.  “We lament to see them engaged in a work which is so repugnant to humanity and the spirit of our holy religion.”   There is reference to a pamphlet, in which the necessity of strife is admonished, and which speaks of fears that the erection of the Monument seems to glorify war…”It may not prevent completion of the Bunker Hill Monument, but it will aid in the dissemination of principles that shall ultimately induce mankind to learn war no more.”
