The Loyal Temperance Legion was the children's branch of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union. Its slogan was "Tremble, King Alcohol, We Shall Grow Up". It published an English-language newspaper for children called The Young Crusader, which was edited for some time by WCTU president Anna Adams Gordon, a strong believer in the need to interest children in temperance at a very early age.[1]
