Additional Information: 

On June 28, 1926, the American Luther League of the Evangelical Lutheran Church conducted a celebration of the 150th birthday of the United States. Over 35,000 people attended patriotic exercises at Soldier Field, including singing national songs, flag drills, a 1,500 member choir performance, and speeches. 

The Luther League was a Lutheran religious association for young people in the United States, founded in New York City in 1888. The Luther League’s goal was to encourage young people to participate in Christian activities and foster loyalty to the church. 

Named as a memorial to American soldiers who have died in wars, Soldier Field was built in 1920 in Chicago and has been home to the NFL Chicago Bears since 1971, and also hosts large-scale events and concerts.
