Portland Soldiers and Sailors, A Brief Sketch of the Part They Took in the War of the Rebellion - B. Thurston and Co.. Members of the Bosworth Post (Grand Army of the Republic) had this volume published for sale at a fair held in Portland, Maine, in 1884, to aid the Soldiers and Sailors Monument. This sketch presents "the prominent facts relating to the troops from Portland, in the war of the rebellion, including the regiments which 'rendezvoused' in our city."The majority of the book is devoted to accounts of the following companies: First Maine Infantry, Fifth Maine Infantry, Tenth Maine Infantry, Twelfth Maine Infantry, Thirteenth Maine Infantry, Seventeenth Maine Infantry, Twenty-Fifth Maine Infantry, Twenty-Seventh Maine Infantry, Twenty-Ninth Maine Infantry, Thirtieth Maine Infantry, and the First Maine Cavalry. The names of Portland officers are listed within their regiments.
