Maine VIII

Bowdoin College is located in Brunswick, Maine and it is historic. Founded in 1794, this small, less than 1900 students, College has given us Presidents, Poets, Novelist, Senators, Ambassadors, Generals and on and on and on.

Opposite Gibson Hall is a memorial dedicated in 1994 which lists the names of the eight alum who were lost in vietnam.

These are listed among others from WWII and Korea, over 200 in all on the three stones.

Adjacent to the wall of names are these quotations from two of Bowdoin's more famous graduates: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and General Joshua Chamberlain.

The sentiments here are very old, yet they seem perfect for this site.

The Campus is located at 225 Maine Street in Brunswick.

Next time, on the 11th, we will see another memorial from Maryland, so join me there, as always, at 9:00am.
