The Salvation Army was founded in London's East End in 1865 by one-time Methodist Reform Church minister William Booth and his wife Catherine.
The Salvation Army was modelled after the military, with its own flag (or colours) and its own hymns, often with words set to popular and folkloric tunes sung in the pubs.
Booth and the other soldiers in "God's Army" would wear the Army's own uniform, for meetings and ministry work.
He became the "General" and his other ministers were given appropriate ranks as "officers". When William Booth became known as the General, Catherine is known as the "Mother of The Salvation Army".
William preached to the poor, and Catherine spoke to the wealthy, gaining financial support for their work.
