Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain is perhaps best known for his heroic actions in the Battle of Gettysburg. The 34-year-old college professor from Maine would lead a fierce bayonet charge down the hill into the face of the enemy, shattering the Confederate attack. His was a life of service. From the halls of Bowdoin College, to the battlefield, to the governor’s mansion, Chamberlain exemplified the best of the 19th century manhood. “Joshua Chamberlain: Scholar, Soldier, Statesman” explores the life and legacy of Joshua Chamberlain; the early years that shaped him, his distinguished service in the Civil War, and his role as statesman upon his return home.
