THEN AND NOW: This still lively, tuition-free institution was established by the inventor and industrialist Peter Cooper in 1859, twelve years after the founding of the first of the City's tuition-free colleges, the Free Academy (later renamed the College of the City of New York and generally called CCNY).

Among the speakers in the Union's Great Hall were Abraham Lincoln (in 1860) and the great black abolitionist Frederick Douglass, who addressed audiences on subjects ranging from the future of blacks in the southern states to the Emancipation Proclamation and a Negro army.
