The story that President Lucas, of the Unions, had guaranteed the traveling expenses of the Wilmington Club on its Western tour if it would join the Union Association, is a pure Munchausenism. He not only offered no inducement to that club to join the Union Association, but was opposed to its admission. The fact is, somebody is lying.-St. Louis Globe-Democrat, September 17, 1884
I really went into this project with an open mind and wanted to prove the skeptics wrong but the fact is that the Union Association was a joke. Never again will I make the argument that the UA was a major league.
