Question:  In a history of Oxford County Maine I learn that my ancestors brother Lucius Allen was in the "Third Maine Band" during the Civil War.  I can not find any reference to this band or regiment.

 

Answer:  According the to records of Civil War Soldiers enlisted in Maine your relative was in a band.  However he was in the Band attached to the 3rd Maine Infantry.  To learn more about this regiment and where they were during the Civil War go online to: http://www.itd.nps.gov/cwss/regiments.cfm.  Select from the options - Union, Maine, and "3" for the regiment.
