Home Fires: Western Maine During the American Civil War

“I wish some great catastrophe would happen to somebody (not me, of course) so that I might have something of importance to set down in my journal. But, I suppose everyone’s journal (who is foolish enough to keep one) is made up of everyday incidents, mixed up with a startling love adventure now and then.” Phebe F. Beach July 1, 1857

When young Phebe Beach posted that entry in her diary, she had no way of knowing just how catastrophic near future events would be. No family escaped the anguish of the war that would nearly tear apart her country, and leave scars that still linger generations later.
