Visit the THS Exhibit entitled, "Thetford in the Civil War", currently on display downstairs in the Bicentennial Building/Latham Library. The hanging portion of the exhibit is up, and features the people and events outlined below. Related artifacts are out and on view during the Historical Society's open hours.
We have several Union uniform pieces, including a Cavalry jacket, a kepi, and a long wool overcoat with cape. Also displayed are a number of equipment pieces, including a cartridge box, canteen, percussion cap holder, an ornamental sword, and a drum carried to a number of battles, including Gettysburg. You'll also see Confederate currency, two lovely dresses in the style of the period, and copies of letters from soldiers are available to read.
