Far from the glistening waters and gray-shingled villages of Cape Cod were the bloody front lines of the American Civil War. During this era, Cape Cod recruiting officers often urged soldiers to “raise the right arm of the old Bay State.” Learn about the Cape’s first casualty of war, Philander Crowell Jr. of Yarmouth, who was a member of the First Massachusetts Regiment; discover how local fishermen made money both by catching fish and by enlisting in the army; and read about the four bloody battles that caused considerable loss for Cape Codders. Join author and historian Stauffer Miller as he chronicles the untold and riveting history of Cape Cod and the Civil War.
