about this book

Introduction by James M. McPherson. An unlikely hero, college professor Joshua Chamberlain, led the 20th Maine in all the fiercest battles of the eastern theater, winning the Medal of Honor for his heroic leadership at Gettysburg. Recounted in this book, first published in 1915, are the dramatic final acts of the Civil War, including Sheridan's rise, Warren's fall, and the slow, inexorable stalking of Lee's forces across the battle-scarred countryside.
