Maine History: From The Civil War Through World War I


We continue our celebration of Maine’s 200th statehood anniversary by examining Maine from the time of the Civil War to the end of the Great War. This is part of our year-long bicentennial series of shows covering Maine history.

Cindy helps produce Maine Public's live call-in show Maine Calling, and sometimes hosts the show—as well as the All Books Considered Book Club. Her first foray into journalism after graduating from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism was to intern with CNN in China in the wake of the Tiananmen Square massacre. She then worked in print journalism over the decades, as a factchecker, writer and editor, with publications ranging from the Los Angeles Times Magazine to the magazine of the National Zoo to a food trends magazine.
