5th Maine Annual Dinner, Meeting & Presentation on the captured flags @ 5th Maine
August 15 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Fifth Maine Museum members are invited to have a light supper on the porch, followed by a short State of the Fifth Maine presentation.
Dinner starts at 5:30pm, State of the Fifth Maine presentation starts at 6:30pm
After our annual membership meeting, we will all move into the hall at 7pm for a presentation by board member Curt Mildner on the CAPTURED FLAGS (FYI: at Rappahannock Station, the 5th Maine Regiment was conspicuous for its gallantry, capturing four enemy flags. But discrepancy between sources has led to confusion about which flags were captured. Fifth Maine Museum board member, Curt Mildner, will present the results of his original research to establish which four flags the regiment captured).
NEW MEMBERS ARE WELCOME TO JOIN TONIGHT!!
