The Passing of the Armies; An Account of the Final Campaign of the Army of the Potomac, Based Upon Personal Reminiscences of the Fifth Army Corps. Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain.
New York: Bantam Books, 1993. First Printing [Stated]. Mass market paperback. xxi, [1], 338, [6] pages. Paperback. Illustrations. Chronology. Introduction by James M. McPherson. Eyewitness account of the end of the Civil War. Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain (born Lawrence Joshua Chamberlain, September 8, 1828 – February 24, 1914) was an American college professor, who volunteered during the American Civil War to join the Union Army. He became a highly decorated Union officer, reaching the rank of brigadier general (and brevet major general). He is known for his gallantry at the Battle of Gettysburg, for which he was awarded the Medal of Honor. Chamberlain was commissioned a lieutenant colonel in the 20th Maine Volunteer Infantry Regiment in 1862 and fought at the Battle of Fredericksburg. He became commander of the regiment in June 1863. On July 2, during the Battle of Gettysburg, Chamberlain's regiment occupied the extreme left of the Union lines at Little Round Top. Chamberlain's men withstood repeated assaults from the 15th Regiment Alabama Infantry and finally drove the Confederates away with a bayonet charge. Chamberlain was wounded while commanding a brigade during the Second Battle of Petersburg in June 1864, and was given a promotion to brigadier general. In April 1865, he fought at the Battle of Five Forks and was given the honor of commanding the Union troops at the surrender ceremony for the infantry of Robert E. Lee's Army at Appomattox Court House, Virginia. After the war, he served four terms of office as the 32nd Governor of Maine. He served as president, of Bowdoin College.
