Local and Legendary: Belfast in the Civil War
Monday, December 2, 6:30 PM | Abbott Room, Belfast Library
The Richardson’s Civil War Round Table, a local group of Civil War historians, will present "Belfast in the Civil War". Included will be presentations about the Belfast City Greys and the Maine Militia, Thomas H. Marshall - 4th ME, Frank W. Dickerson - 5th Cavalry, and the role of women on the home front. This program is free, open to the public and is part of "Local and Legendary: Belfast in the Civil War."
Please note: The Richardson Civil War Round Table meets the first Wednesday of every month at 7 PM at the Congregational Church in Searsport. The round table has been in existence for more than 20 years and they welcome all to their monthly programs.
Members will soon receive a membership renewal request. As you think about gifts during the holiday season, please remember that memberships and donations are critical to helping the Belfast Historical Society and Museum meet its operating costs. Please encourage your friends and neighbors who enjoy our programs to become members, too.
