A remarkable biography tracing the life and times of Maine native Joshua L. Chamberlain, the professor-turned-soldier who led the Twentieth Maine Regiment to glory at Gettysurg, earned a battlefield promotion to brigadier general from U. S. Grant at Petersburg, and was wounded six times during the course of the Civil War. Chosen to accept the formal Confederate surrender at Appomattox, Chamberlain endeared himself to succeding generations with his unfogettable salutation of Robert E. Lee's vanquished army.
