Stipend-supported Projects on Maine Memory Network
Local & Legendary: Maine in the Civil War
From 2013-2015, Maine Historical Society (MHS) and Maine Humanities Council (MHC) collaborated on Local & Legendary: Maine in the Civil War, a program to engage Maine communities in their Civil War history. Funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, Local & Legendary brought together collaborative project teams comprised of libraries, historical organizations, and educational institutions to explore local Civil War history in multidisciplinary ways and investigate questions of that era's motivations, loyalty, identity, and politics at the community level. Digital exhibits created by the team were added to Maine Memory Network's Civil War site.

Past Community Mobilization Grants
Maine Historical Society (MHS), in partnership with the Maine State Library (MSL), offered a training and grant program to support participation in Maine Memory Network (MMN) from 2011-2013. The goal of the program was to help organizations and community teams develop the skills and capacity needed to contribute to MMN effectively. In the process, participants learned to collaborate with local partners, identify and share a wide range of resources, and stimulate interest in their local history.
All projects are shared through and become part of Maine Memory, which provides a robust technical infrastructure, a platform for training and skills development, consistent standards, and the broadest possible access to the projects.
