You’ve been hearing a lot about the bicentennial of Maine statehood which happens on March 15, 2020. I am sure you, like many in Maine, have questions. “Why were we part of Massachusetts in the first place?” “How is the Civil War in England and the beheading of Charles I connected to the Massachusetts Bay colony’s conquest of Maine?” “What were the benefits and problems associated with Maine being part of Massachusetts?” And the big question “Why did it take so many votes to finally approve of separation?”

Come join The Lady Knox Chapter NSDAR on Saturday March 21, 2020 at 10:00 AM at the Maine Lighthouse Museum, One Park Drive, Rockland, Maine as Carolyn Hardmon of Nobleboro, teacher of Maine history and government presents an illustrated program answering these and many more questions concerning Maine statehood and the controversies surrounding it.
