The American Peace Society was the first nationally based secular peace organization in the United States. It was formed in 1828 from the merging of several state and local peace societies of New York, Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts; the oldest, the New York Peace Society, dated from 1815. The American Peace Society organized peace conferences and published a periodical entitled Advocate of Peace . The headquarters of the organization moved to Hartford, then Boston, and finally Washington, D.C. where it remains today.
