All for the Union: the Role of Women in the CIvil War- presentation at History House

   In our on-going effort to commemorate Maine's participation in the Civil War, the Parsonsfield-Porter Historical Society will host a presentation by author Lynda Sudlow in which she will discuss the Maine women who served the Union in the war.

If you thought the Civil War was fought only by men, think again!  Nurse, agent, soldier, spy  -- to say nothing of all the home front efforts -- women played many critical roles during the war. Our featured speaker, Lyn Sudlow, will be sharing some of their stories with us at our meeting on June 22 as we commemorate the sesquicentennial of the war.  Lyn, author of A Vast Army of Women : Maine's Uncounted Forces in the American Civil War is a researcher, historian, and resident of Parsonsfield.  Books will be available for sale and signing. 

Mark your calendars! 1:00pm on Saturday June 22, 2013.  You won't want to miss this one!
