Two members of the Rumford Historical Society on Wednesday presented their research on residents, including a nurse and a musician, who served in the Civil War.

Society member Jane Peterson said she and member Nghia Ha spent weeks visiting libraries and historical societies throughout the state to get information. Their findings were uploaded to the Maine Memory Network, an online museum featuring historical exhibits from across the state.

This event was covered in the Sun Journal by staff writer Matthew Daigle on April 16, 2015.
