Preserving the Union:  The Maine Sailor's Experience

with David Nelson


The American Civil War is most often thought of as a land based war.  Howwever, the naval strategies and actions of this war defined the future U.S. Navy and Marine Corps.  Civil War sailors and Marines helped define the esprit de corps embodied by future generations of Navy and Marine Corps.

Navy veteran, Civil War re-enacter and historian David Nelson, whose passion is researching the naval history of the Civil War, will discuss the lives of Navy men during the conflict.
