Deep River Civil War Exhibit

Stone House, 245 Main Street, Deep River, CT , 06417

Departing from their homes, family and friends, they left their secure and comfortable world for the uncertainty and horrors of war. They were driven by their love of country and the belief that the freedom that they knew and cherished at home belonged to all men. The volunteers brought with them the skills and ingenuity to allow them to survive living conditions far worse than most people today have ever experienced. The volunteers from Deep River and surrounding towns showed great courage in battle and their sacrifices helped preserve the Union and the cause of freedom. With respect and admiration we thank them for their defense of home, country and our way of life. They will not be forgotten.
