Topic: “The Navy and Maine”

April 30, 2011

Naval vessels built in the state, Maine naval shipyards and duty stations, naval seamen from Maine, the defense of the Maine coast, naval action along the Maine coast, all naval subjects with any relation to Maine will be open for presentation and debate. There is no time period restriction.

This Symposium will also complement Maine Maritime Museum’s exhibit (Feb. 19 to Aug. 7, 2011) Cold Waters, Cold War: the 20th Century Navy in Maine.
