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 by Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain( Book )
37 editions published between 1865 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 660 libraries worldwide
"It was 1865 and the Army of the Potomac was on the move --in front of Petersburg, at White Oak Road, and Five Forks, outmaneuvering and outfighting a beleaguered enemy. In this extraordinary memoir, Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain of the Fifth Corps records the dramatic final acts of the Civil War: Sheridan's rise, Warren's fall, and the slow, inexorable stalking of Lee's forces across the battle-scarred countryside. With rare eloquence, Chamberlain describes the troop movements, the clash and chaos of battle, and the soul of a Union army under the confident new command of U.S. Grant. Here is an unmatched portrait of war's end --from the moment a Confederate staff officer crossed the lines bearing a white flag to the cold gray morning at Appomattox that sealed the South's defeat and sent two armies home to a nation changed forever"--Page 4 of cover

Soul of the Lion fills the last big gap in Civil War biography. It is extraordinary that no previous life of General Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, the hero of Little Round Top at Gettysburg, has preciously appeared, for Chamberlain was a truly great fighting general. There are many who hold that Chamberlains' defence of Little Round Top turned the tide at Gettysburg and thus saved the Union. Chamberlain was born a soldier but he planned originally to be a missionary. A graduate of Bangor Theological Seminary, he was an instructor in religion at Bowdoin College when the Civil War broke out and he discovered his true vocation. His career was one of exceptional gallantry. He was an officer always in the thick of battle. Fourteen horses were shot under him, and finally he was terribly wounded, yet recovered to fight in the closing campaigns of the War. He was designated to receive the surrender of the Confederate infantry after the Appomatox meeting of Grant and Lee, and he played the role with magnanimity. Chamberlain's peacetime career was no less notable. Four times he was elected Governor of the State of Maine, and ha made a good governor. Then he became president of Bowdoin College and instituted there a progressive educational policy, declaring that "we must also take hold of which we call science, and which makes knowledge power." In 1880, Chamberlain, unarmed and alone faced down at Augusta, the capital of Maine, a mob that threatened to kill him. With magnificent courage, he said: "I am here to see that the laws of this state are put into effect... I am here for that and I shall do it. If anybody wants to kill me for it, here I am." Chamberlain was a State of Maine man to the marrow of his bones. He was born on a farm at Brewer, Maine, where today a big bridge is named after him; he was Maine-educated; he served with Maine regiments; he was active in Maine politics and president of Bowdoin, Maine's great college; he closed his life of service by acting as Port Surveyor at Portland -- Book jacket

The grand old man of Maine : selected letters of Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, 1865-1914 by Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain( Book )
5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"The letters included here reveal Chamberlain's perspective on military events at Gettysburg, Five Forks, and Appomattox, and on the planning of ceremonies to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of Gettysburg. As Jeremiah Goulka points out in his introduction, the letters also shed light on Chamberlain's views on politics, race relations, and education, and they expose some of the personal difficulties he faced late in life. On a broader scale, Chamberlain's correspondence contributes to a better understanding of the influence of Civil War veterans on American life and the impact of the war on veterans themselves
