Hello, I am interested in obtaining information regarding the 1st Me. Cav. Co. A. My Great -Great -Great -Grandfather, and his brother, were in the 1st Maine Cav Co. A. I have photos of my grandfather in his uniform and his original disharge papers. My family served in other regiments from Maine as well. Also, my father's side had grandfathers in the 35th Iowa. I am originally from Lisbon, but operated a dairy farm in North Whitefield, Me. I am presently a criminal justice student at the University of Great Falls in Great Falls, Montana. My grandfather and his brother joined Co. K of the 1st DC Cav., and then transferred to the 1st Me. Cav. Co. A. in 1865. I would appreciate any information concerning the new 1st Maine Cav. that you can offer. Sincerly, Rick Chattick

Rick, Go to mainecav.org. You will find a great deal of information there about 1st and 2nd Maine, original and recreated. Also the definitive resource for 1st Maine and 1st DC is Tobie's regimental history. Copies can be difficult to find and rather pricey, it can be found online for free as an ebook.
