Description

Bound volume containing handwritten regimental orders, related reports, and personal observations concerning the detachment of the A Company of the Light Infantry of the 4th Regiment, 1st Brigade, 3rd Division of the Maine Militia from their mobilization into active service on 18 February 1839 through their discharge on 23 April 1939. In addition to the 25 pages of handwritten entries related to the “Aroostook Expedition” of 1839, the volume also contains schoolwork (arithmetical and penmanship exercises) written one or more individuals, probably between 1862 and 1864. Inserted into the volume were two telegram forms, containing what appears to be a draft handwritten telegram from the 1930s requesting payment for accommodation at the Jordan House in Ellsworth, Maine.
