BAINBRIDGE – On July 18, 2012, the Bainbridge Post Office participated in a Pictorial Postmark hosted by the US Post Office and the Chenango County Civil War Commemoration Project Committee.
Each post office in Chenango County is participating in the Pictorial Postmarks and Bainbridge was another big surprise – especially for one postal patron. Anne Fell Terzo arrived at the post office to find that her great grandfather’s image was depicted on an envelope to commemorate his service in the Civil War. Not only was there one image of her ancestor, but two images of Frank Phinney; one as a young soldier and the other as a GAR (Grand Army of the Republic) veteran.
