How could the Civil War affect the economy of the Town of Thomaston and the Prison? What challenges were faced by the newly installed Warden? And who found themselves imprisoned then?

The talk, given by Sandra L. Hoekstra, Bookseller, Member ABAA, ILAB, IOBA, is based on the ”Report of the Warden and Inspectors of the Maine State Prison” in 1861 by Richard Tinker, Warden, the State Inspectors and the Prison Physician and Chaplain.

Sandra adds that she has juicy tidbits of who the prisoners were in 1861.
