Brewer-area fans of Maine at War are invited to join us at 11 a.m., Wednesday, March 18 at the Brewer Public Library, located at 100 South Main Street, at the intersection with School Street.
Titled Maine and Brewer Help Save the Union in 1861 and 1862, our well-illustrated program will focus on how Maine and Brewer responded when civil war tore apart the United States. We will meet several “Brewer boys,” including the indomitable Joshua Chamberlain, who decided that saving the country meant everything, even more than life itself.
Copies of Maine at War Volume 1: Bladensburg to Sharpsburg will be available for purchase and signing. The first of three volumes covering Maine’s involvement in the Civil War, this book takes readers from the State House halls in Augusta to the heat, cold, rain, bugs, and battlefields that Maine men and women encountered in the South.
If you enjoy reading the adventures of Mainers caught up in the Civil War, be sure to like Maine at War on Facebook and get a copy of the new Maine at War Volume 1: Bladensburg to Sharpsburg, available online at Amazon and all major book retailers, including Books-A-Million and Barnes & Noble. —————————————————————————————————————–
