During the American Civil War the locally mustered 2nd Maine Volunteer Infantry Regiment was the first to march out of Maine in 1861, and played a prominent part in the First Battle of Bull Run.The 1st Maine Heavy Artillery Regiment, mustered in Bangor and commanded by a local merchant, lost more men than any other Union regiment in the war (especially in the Second Battle of Petersburg, 1864).By 1772, there were 12 families, along with a sawmill, store, and school, and in 1787 the population was 567. This petition was rejected before 6 October 1788, as the town referred to itself as Penobscot River, west side.In September 1787 a petition, signed by 19 residents, was sent to the General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts requesting that this designated area be named Sunbury. In 1779, the rebel Penobscot Expedition fled up the Penobscot River and ten of its ships were scuttled by the British fleet at Bangor.During the War of 1812 Bangor and Hampden were looted by the British.Maine was part of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts until 1820 when it voted to secede from Massachusetts and was admitted to the Union as the 23rd state under the Missouri Compromise.The ships remained there until the late 1950s, when construction of the Joshua Chamberlain Bridge disturbed the site.Six cannons were removed from the riverbed; five of which are on display throughout the region (one was thrown back into the river by area residents angered that the archeological site was destroyed for the bridge construction).
Editor Marcellus Emery escaped unharmed and it was only after the war that he resumed publishing.There are more than 20 communities worldwide named Bangor, of which 15 are in the United States and named after Bangor, Maine.
