The Passing of the Armies: The Last Campaign of the Armies by Joshua L Chamberlain

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.
