Bowdoin College is preparing Alumni College programming, “The Afterlife of the American Civil War,” a hands on study of culture, music, art and poetry following the Civil War, August 8-11, 2013.

As a part of this sesquicentennial commemoration, the George J. Mitchell Department of Special Collections & Archives presents the blog On this Day in Civil War History… as a daily reminder of what occurred 150 years ago.

You speak of your non-interference with my love-affairs. If all my friends could say the same – much bitterness of feeling would have been dispensed with. —C.H. Howard to his mother
