My project at the Fogler was
to make high dpi scans of early 20th century Maine outdoor sporting images. In
scouting around the collection I ran across a large collection of Maine Civil
War paper. It seems that during the 1950's to 70's this fellow had
purchased every scrap of paper that had to do with Maine and the Civil War. When
he died in the 1980's his widow gave this large collection to the University
Here are 7 interesting images from that collection that pertain to Whitefield:
By clicking on the name of the image below you will see a scan of that document.

( If you should need a higher quality image , I have them scanned at about 80% greater dpi and can put them on a CD if you require.
