In addition to MPBN and their documentary The Sixteenth Maine at Gettysburg, CATV also produced a documentary on Maine and the Civil War. There was a third filmed sponsored by The Pejepscot Historical Society on Joshua Chamberlain.
This is the film done by CATV. Chad Smith and his wife Toni did an amazing job. It is all inclusive and as requested, includes information on civilian life that is often overlooked when teaching the history of the war.
We look forward to making more documentaries with a more intense focus on the home-life here in Maine during the war.

Again, thank you to all involved in the weekend.
Thank-you to everyone who helped make this event as wonderful as it was. Without the reenactors as well as behind the scenes supporters, presentations such as this can not happen.
The visitors we had were filled with questions and left learning more about Maine and the Civil War.
Three cheers for you all! Huzzah!!!Huzzah!!!Huzzah!!!

The Union Troops have arrived and are camped on a field close by to await reinforcements. Will they arrive in time?
