History Room Live: African American Soldiers from Bath

July 31, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Tim Richter and Brenda Cummings of Bath Historical Society will present new research in their talk, We All Bleed Red: African American Soldiers from Bath in the 1st Maine Heavy Artillery Regiment. Two thousand two hundred men served in the First Maine Heavy Artillery regiment during the course of the Civil War. Twenty-eight of those men were credited to Bath, and three of those twenty-eight were African Americans, making the First Maine Heavy Artillery Regiment perhaps the only Civil War regiment where Black and white men served together. Learn more with Tim and Brenda on Friday, July 31.
