Please join us on Friday, May 3 at 5:30 p.m. at the Saco Museum for the grand opening of John Haley's Civil War! Come and get the first peek of the Saco Museum's summer exhibition, curated and designed by students at the University of New England, and contribution to the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War being celebrated across Maine this year. Saco native John Haley served in the 17th Maine Regiment, from 1862 to 1865 and participated in battles such as Fredericksburg, Gettysburg, Cold Harbor, and Appomattox. He documented his experiences in a journal after the war and commented on thirty mile marches, hazardous medical treatments, and life at camp. Many years after the war, John Haley became the Dyer Library's second librarian and a Saco historian. View the Civil War through the eyes of a self-described "mediocre but always present" soldier!
