Walk Among the Shadows

Due to popular demand, The non-profit group Spirits Alive is adding two dates to their popular “Walk Among the Shadows” event in Eastern Cemetery. This year’s theme is “Portland’s Inferno, Fire and Resurgence”. A year after the Civil War ended, Portland planned a July 4th celebration. By the next morning much of Portland Neck had burned to ashes. Hear from eight spirits, risen from their graves, to provide their accounts of Portland’s Inferno of 1866.
