Maine in War, Organization and Officers of the Society, What the Society Has Accomplished, Constitution of the Society, Roll of Members, Officers of National Society, Constitution of the National Society (1887)
Maine, although a province of Massachusetts until 1820, has a history of its own. Maine men have always stood shoulder to shoulder with the sons of the old mother Commonwealth and they share in the glory of her history. Nobly have they borne the responsibilities of their times. The early settlers, as civilization demanded, bravely contested with the savages the right to occupy our rugged soil, and the story of their lives is one of heroism. In 1690, nearly all were driven from the province, but their sons and grandsons returned and reoccupied the abandoned homesteads.
