The Maine Civil War Trail

Americans, north and south, responded to the demands of the conflict
in similar ways. Husbands, fathers and sons enlisted in the army and
navy. Women kept the homefires burning while supporting the troops
as nurses, Sanitary Commission workers, and spies. Children did their
part, too, working on the farms and in mills producing weapons,
gunpowder, uniforms, blankets and the like. Some 70,000 men and an
uncounted number of women served on the battlefields. Thousands
more labored at home to provide for the troops what the federal
government could not. The exhibits along the Maine Civil War Trail tell
their stories.

Follow the Trail along the coast from Saco to Castine; then head inland
to Bangor and Augusta. And don’t forget the western mountains –
Kingfield, Bethel and Bridgton.

The Trail opens in spring 2013
