Description

Sagamore (Portland) 27

Augusta (Augusta) 9

(Wilkes’ Spirit of the Times: “… the Sagamores of Portland made a brief jaunt to Augusta, to play a friendly game with the Augusta Club, who had challenged them.  The trial came off in the presence of some one thousand to twelve hundred spectators.  Both clubs play the New York game.  In the evening both clubs participated in a splendid dinner at the Augusta House.  Previous to this entertainment both clubs, accompanied by their friends, formed in procession, and headed by a fine band of music, paraded through several of the principal thouroughfares of Augusta.”)
