Abstract

Martha's Vineyard was a significant source of aid to the Union during the United States Civil War. Working with the Martha's Vineyard Historical Society, the group examined Bellum artifacts, transcribed letters from an Edgartown soldier, and provided suggestions for a future exhibit regarding Martha's Vineyard's participation in the Civil War. From this work, the people of the present will more easily see the role played by Martha's Vineyard in the largest war to take place on the North American continent.
