The event was the final piece of a year long project by the Pittsfield Historical Society, Pittsfield Public Library, and the Maine Central Institute to research and establish Pittsfield’s role in the war.
“I think it’s a great event because it creates a common goal for different local societies and organizations to really come together and share the common memories and the local history,” said Guang Shou Yang, an MCI teacher and co-coordinator of the Civil War Program.”
