The Bugle

Maine's Cavalry

Historical Photos

The images below are of men that served in Maine's cavalry regiments during the Civil War. Each and every one was a person that answered his country's call. Many of them died in that service. From their writings, jornals, and reunion records, we know that their time together meant a great deal to them and they cherished that bond known only to people that have endured great hardship together.

As we find them, images and information of these men will be posted here because no one that gave so much for so many should be forgotten.

If you have or know where scans of images of the 1st, 2nd Maine Cavalry, or 1st DC Cavalry can be had,
please pass them along so we may add them to this collection.
