In the following article, printed in the Lewiston Journal on Oct 15th 1862, it was written that many former and current students of the Maine State Seminary [in Lewiston, Maine; later became Bates College] had gathered within the camp on the 11th, to form the "Maine State Seminary Camp Club". Here, they planned to occasionally gather and have discussions, "declamations and other exercises". They also agreed to have their proceedings published in the Lewiston Journal. I found this interesting, as the three regiments were already mustered in, and plans were being made for them to be shipped out shortly. Indeed, they were all marching to Washington, DC within a week of this being printed. As many soldiers were on furlough home finalizing their plans while they were to be away, perhaps the students decided to pass these last days in camp together, and joined in the educational activities they had put on hold while serving their country.
I did not find any other mention of the Club in later issues of the Lewiston Journal.
