Excerpt from The Story of One Regimen: The Eleventh Maine Infantry Volunteers in the War of the Rebellion
The desirability of taking steps to the end that a history of the Eleventh Maine Regiment of Infantry Volunteers be compiled was a subject of conversation for many years ... among the regi ment's surviving members. All agreed that such a compilation should be made, in order that the exact story of the part their regiment took in the suppression of the great rebellion should be made known. But it was not until 1891, at the reunion held at Camp Benson, that action was taken. On that occasion, at the business meeting, after an exchange of views on the subject, it was voted that the acting president of the Regimental Association appoint a committee of five to gather material for such a regi mental history as it should be found desirable to publish.
