Circa 1900’s Woodmen of The World Ribbon with metal Badges Double Sided W/ Box

Brief History:
“The organization was founded in 1890 in Omaha, Nebraska, by Joseph Cullen Root. Root founded Modern Woodmen of America (MWA) in Lyons, Iowa, in 1883, after hearing a sermon about “pioneer woodsmen clearing away the forest to provide for their families.” Taking his own surname to heart, he wanted to start a society that “would clear away problems of financial security for its members.”
After internal dissension within the MWA, Root was ejected from the organization that he had founded. When moving to Omaha, Root decided to start again with a new group he called the Modern Woodmen of the World. He soon dropped the “Modern,” and the organization became “Woodmen of the World.
