Civil War Walking Tour
Evergreen Cemetery will be offering a walking tour of its Historic Section coinciding with the anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, July 1-3, 1863. With over 1,000 Civil War veterans, Evergreen’s Historic Section is perhaps Portland’s best, yet little known Civil War site. These men and women along with family and friends tell the story of Maine in the war era from the battlefield to efforts at home.
This tour of Evergreen Cemetery as well as other are sponsored by the Friends of Evergreen. The tours are led by their experienced History Docent team of volunteers. You do not need to pre-register, just meet us by the cemetery office. on the day of the tour. Tours are free and open to the public. For information on other tours available check their web site at: friendsofevergreen.org.
