The New England Civil War Museum and its library, works to convey the lessons of the American Civil War. We exist to perpetuate the memory of the Civil War and of those who helped to save the Union, through the preservation and display of relics of that war. The museum also has an educational outreach program focusing on historical education of youth and promoting lifelong learning among adults.
We will further educate the public as to the Civil War history of our country, our state, and our local towns. We will also collect, preserve, and make available for research: documents and materials pertaining to the history of the American Civil War. We will also conduct any other legal activities appropriate to our goals.
