Raised by 9 people in 10 months
Created August 28, 2018
The 1st Maine Cavalry, Co. A, reenacting group is raising funds to transport and erect a stone that will soon become the memorial to the men of the 1st Maine who fought and died at Aldie, Middleburg and Upperville at the start of the Gettysburg campaign in 1863.

The stone is native Maine, Portland gray granite and it weighs in at 3000+ lbs.

The photo of the stone was taken by Stevens D. Bunker. He is also responsible for the creation of the stone.

A descendant of a 1st Maine cavalryman has just made a donation to this appeal. I will be forwarding the donation along to Bunker and have invited the donor to the dedication of the stone. I will be posting the date of the dedication via an update on this appeal in order to let any of the donors know, in case they wish to attend the dedication. (The sketch was drawn by Alfred Waud and shows 1st Maine cavalrymen skirmishing at Aldie, Virginia.)

Last call! I will be mailing a check to Stevens Bunker, who has done all of the work and spent all of the money on the memorial so far, on Monday the 29th of October. Please consider adding any amount to the fund.
