McCauley, Vice President, George Sidebotham (?), Secretary Wm M. Matthias, Treasurer C. O. Brewster, Directors Wm W Wade, Charles Gaskill, Thomas J. Wolfe, Theodore Bomeis, Joseph Conrad." (per Matt Albertson email)
In 1866, the New York Clipper reported on a meeting of the Sparta of Philadelphia.
Philadelphia Sunday Mercury, Nov. 26, 1865 says they're a junior club.
There's also a Spartacus Club mentioned elsewhere--same group?
Is there evidence that this club played ball?
