Bangor has over 35,000 residents, which makes it the third-largest city in Maine, after Portland and Lewiston. Located about 30 miles from Penobscot Bay, Bangor deemed itself the "lumber capital of the world," in the 19th century. Bangor had anti-slavery politics well before the Civil War, and the Union's first volunteer infantry company was raised there after the attack on Fort Sumter. The city is considered the alter ego of Stephen King's town of Derry, which he refers to in many of his stories, including the novel, "It."
