Overview

"Military and Naval History of Residents of Kennebunk, Maine who Enlisted During the late Civil War," by Andrew Walker is a short book, but a treasure trove of genealogy, for anyone interested in the soldiers of the American Civil War. It contains the named of all the men who enlisted in the Union army or Navy from the town of Kennebunk, Maine during the period 1861 to 1865, who their closest family was, and their fate during their enlistment.

Kennebunk, Maine is a small town, except during the tourist season, even now. But at the time of the Civil War it was a village; yet, 168 residents enlisted during the years of the war. The high price paid by this small Maine village was repeated across the Union and was no doubt the same in the small towns & villages in the Confederacy. It points out the sacrifices made by the citizens on both sides, that helped forge the present, truly, United Sates of America. Poignantly, it points up the old saw, "It was a rich man's war, but a poor man's fight."

NOTE: This book has been scanned then OCR (Optical Character Recognition) has been applied to turn the scanned page images back into editable text. Then every effort has been made to correct typos, spelling, and to eliminate stray marks picked up by the OCR program. The original and/or extra period images, if any, were then placed in the appropriate place and, finally, the file was formatted for the e-book criteria of the site. This means that the text CAN be re-sized, searches performed, & bookmarks added, unlike some other e-books that are only scanned---errors, stray marks, and all.
