It’s summer in Maine and that means it’s time for Pejepscot Historical Society’s Summer Walking Tours. I hope you’ll join me Sunday, Aug. 13th, at 10 am for African Americans, Abolitionists, and Southern Ship Masters, a Civil War tour of Brunswick’s Pine Grove Cemetery. First we’ll pay our respects to Phebe Jacobs, a woman of uncommon inner strength who was born enslaved, but died a free woman. Then we’ll meet abolitionists and the ship captains who hated them. And we’ll honor soldiers from households both ordinary and grand, who died on the battlefield or from disease, and those, like Gen. Joshua Chamberlain, who survived to return home.
Reservations are required by Friday, Aug. 11. For more information go to Pejepscot Historical Society’s Summer Walking Tours page.
