Civil War Regimental Correspondence

Regimental Correspondence

This material primarily consists of incoming correspondence from officers of the various Maine units, addressed to either the Adjutant General of Maine or the three Governors who held office during the Civil War. While much of it deals with the mechanical routines of running a regiment, the material can give researchers a unique insight into how the volunteer regiments worked - or in some cases, failed to work. Often beset by regimental politics as well as civilian political interests, most of these units nevertheless matured into formidable fighting forces in the end. The material is organized chronologically, regiment by regiment.
