Exhibit Opening Reception -- Terrible Swift Sword: Civil War Weapons and Ordnance @ Fifth Maine Museum

Join us for an opening reception of our new exhibition showcasing some of the most significant Civil War-era weapons and armaments in the Fifth Maine Museum collection.

The culmination of several year’s work, the exhibit features weapons carried or collected by the soldiers of the Fifth Maine Regiment, one of the Union Army’s most celebrated fighting regiments.  Guest Curator, Eric Champigny, will discuss the objects including muskets and a pistol, a Navy carbine, a bayonet, swords, shells, and projectiles. They represent both the Confederate and Union armies.

Light refreshments will be served.
