Question: This fall I found a gravestone with an abbreviation I have never seen. Can you tell me what group a lady would have been involved in with the abbreviation of D.O.L.L.U.S?
Answer: I belive that the Dames of the Loyal Legion of the United States is the full name of the group you found. This is the auxiliary of the Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States. This organization was created for officers of the Union Army from the Civil War. The Dames organization was incorporated in 1899, and are still active today.
