About 30 people (including vets and children) turned out for a screening of The 16th Maine at Gettysburg at the Windham VFW Hall on a gorgeous, Saturday spring afternoon.
Part of the Local & Legendary activities in Windham, the event was organized by teacher Sabrina Nickerson, whose students have been studying the war this year, and raising money to purchase grave markers for local veterans’ graves.
David provided historical background on Maine in the Civil War and answered audience questions. Dan answered questions on the development and process of making the film.
The event was captured in an article in the Windham Eagle, “Bringing History to the Youth of Windham and the Community.”
