Post 621 of the Grand Army of the Republic, also known as the F.M. Bull Post, was an organization of Civil War veterans from Saranac Lake and Lake Placid. It was named for Francis M. Bull. An adjunct organization for women was called the Women's Relief Corps. The earliest mention in local newspapers is from 1897. It disbanded in the 1930s.
Lake Placid News, May 21, 1935, p. 6, from a column titled "It happened 20 years ago"
G. A. R. veterans and friends from Saranac Lake and Lake Placid will gather here tomorrow to observe Memorial Day services under the auspices of the local relief corps.
Less than a dozen veterans remain to answer the roll call of survivors. The brief roll of the inter-village F. M. Bull Post 621 reads: C. S. Gay, Wallace Slater, Joseph LaMoy, Henry McNulty, Henry Allen, Henry Somers, M. N. LaMoy, Hiram Hathaway, Peter Segua, Edward Riley, Edward Otis, Joseph Merrill, G. W. Mussen, Warren Flanders, Lewis P. Daniels, and Charles Dwight.
They will be met as a body at the railroad station by the local W. H. LaMoy Relief Corps and the Lake Placid band. Dinner will be served at noon at the Methodist Church followed by a patriotic service. At the conclusion of the service an interim of social discourse will be enjoyed, and a supper will be served at 5:30 preceding the departure of the visiting veterans and friends.

With few of its original members and little need remaining for its services, the F. M. Bull Post of the Women's Relief Corps of Saranac Lake is about to disband.
