2,187 men from Cambridge, Massachusetts enlisted in the Civil War. 216 different professions were self-identified by each of the men upon their enlistment. All the professions are listed from accountant to woodworker. Many of the professions, like Chandler and Ice Dealer, no longer exist, and some, like Pyrotechnist and Pop Corn man, spark the imagination.
