ABOUT THE BOOK:
A popular history of Joshua Chamberlain, a college professor from Maine who became a decorated Union Army officer known for his leadership in the Battle of Gettysburg, and went on after the war to serve as Republican governor of Maine and president of Bowdoin College.
“Joshua Chamberlain was much more than a war hero, and Pullen’s thoughtful book fills out the picture of his remarkable life. An entertaining and inspiring story.”
Senator George J. Mitchell
“Pullen’s book is a worthy tribute to Chamberlain’s lasting legacy.”
Charles F. Herberger, Civil War Book Review
“Pullen’s presentation is more complete in revealing a complicated character, without diminishing the almost mythic status he has assumed.”
