1891 Invoice from the Department of Maine GAR at Rockland, Maine, to Meade Post #40 at Eastport, Maine

December 25, 1891 invoice from the Department of Maine, Grand Army of the Republic, at Rockland, Maine, to Meade Post #40 at Eastport, Maine, which was requesting:

  • applications
  • buttonhole badges
  • membership badges
  • badge ribbons for officers
  • badge ribbons for comrades

 Sadly, the document does not list any names of GAR members.

The second floor of the GAR Meade Post 40 hall in Eastport, currently undergoing restoration, is decorated with many murals, at least some of which were reportedly painted by a Harrington.  It's said that Joshua Chamberlain, on a tour of GAR posts in Maine, was considerably impressed.

 If you have information to share on Meade Post 40 of the GAR at Eastport, Maine, Maine, please leave a comment for the benefit of other researchers.
