Springfield & The Civil War
We at The Republican are launching a four-year project to tell the story of how our community coped with 48 months of war, from April of 1861 to April of 1865.

On the first Sunday of each month we will run a report of what was happening here 150 years ago during that month.

by Wayne Phaneuf, Executive Editor

Parts 1 - 9 -- April - December 1861

Parts 10 - 21 -- January - December 1862

Parts 22 - 33 -- January - December 1863

Part 34 -- The Civil War: A hometown celebration for the men of Massachusetts' 27th Regiment highlights January 1864

Part 35 -- Civil War February 1864: Swindlers prey on soldiers and massive fire destroys Colt pistol works

Part 36 -- Civil War March 1864: Ulysses S. Grant takes command, deadly explosion rips through Springfield cartridge factory

Part 36 -- Civil War of April 1864 saw atrocities and setbacks for the Union while Springfield flourished

Part 37 -- Civil War 150th anniversary: The battlefield carnage of May 1864 hits home in Western Massachusetts

Introducing the project

Back in 1864 June 1 was considered the first day of the summer season. Fittingly the month began with a heat wave and The Republican’s pages were filled with stories of fishing, and upcoming amusement, ranging from circuses and the world’s largest traveling menagerie, to English opera and comedy.
