U of Nebraska Press, 1 jan. 1998 - 405 pagina's
"Chamberlain had a most successful military career capped by being chosen to command the Union troops who were present when the Army of Northern Virginia lay down their arms. His account of the final Virginia campaign is superb. He was as great a writer as he was a fighter."-Albert Castel, Civil War Times Illustrated. "This is one of the finest accounts of a campaign penned by a Federal soldier. . . . A stellar work of Civil War history-a classic."-The Civil War in Books. Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain was a Maine college professor who entered the Union Army in 1862. He fought with the Twentieth Maine at Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Spotsylvania, and Cold Harbor and was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his role at Little Round Top. In the campaigns described here, Chamberlain commanded a brigade in the Fifth Corps in the Army of the Potomac during the final days of the war. His eyewitness account takes us past Lee's surrender to show the beginnings of Reconstruction. Introducer Brooks D. Simpson has written widely on the Civil War and Reconstruction. He is a professor of history and humanities at Arizona State University.
