A group of 14 people met on Nov. 17, 1862 at the home of Jedediah Jewett in Portland and formed the Maine Camp Hospital Association to assist Maine soldiers in the Army of the Potomac. The organization had its genesis in the Free Street Baptist Society's Ladies Committee.
The group, which continued throughout the war, sent goods and nurses to the Washington, D.C., area.
The record book details the group's meetings and activities.
