Relics Saved

For many men and women, the Civil War was a transformative experience, one to be remembered – for good or ill.

Most likely, they had never been in or seen a battle.

The war might have been their first time outside of Maine, first travel by ship or rail, or first encounter with slavery or African-Americans.
