Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain was a college professor from Maine.  Prior to the Civil War he had no education in military strategies.  Chamberlain became a highly respected and decorated officer for his gallantry defending “Little Round Top” at the Battle of Gettysburg, for which he was awarded the Medal of Honor.  He was wounded at Gettysburg and again at Petersburg. Chamberlain commanded Union troops at Appomattox Court House during the surrender of Robert E. Lee’s army.  After the war Chamberlain served four terms as governor of Maine.  He wrote several books on the Civil War, and became president of his alma mater, Bowdoin College.
