Oin College after the war Joshua Chamberlain winner of the Medal of Honor for leading the 20th Maine s bayonet charge from Little Round Top at Gettysburg writes of the last few months of the Civil War from his perspective as a Commander in the 5th Corps The book begins with the battle of Five Forks where the Union forces victory caused Robert E Lee to abandon his defense of Richmond Petersburg and retreat hoping to combine his forces with those of General Johnston Chamberlain traces the union pursuit resulting in the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox He then writes of the return of the Army of the Potomac to Washington the Grand Review and its June 281865 disbandment As expected from the former Bowdoin College professor of rhetoric and modern languages his writing is creative philosophical and well researched I found his discussion of command confusion of the 5th Corps during the time of the Five Forks battle where Generals Grant Meade Sheridan and Warren seemed to lose the concept of unity of command The chapter The Last Review is particularly pleasant reading as Chamberlain recounts the exploits and losses of the various commands as they passed in review in late May 1865 This book must be read if only for the chapters concerning the surrender at Appomattox and the final review of the Army of the Potomac through Washington DC DisappointedI have long respected Chamberlain and anticipated reading this book However it proved too wordy and overly done Pretentious in a word Fantastic account of the final two weeks of the Civil War written by an improbable scholar turned war hero a Bowdoin College professor who just might have single handedly saved the Union Well there is plenty of credit to go around but his bravery and modesty were unuestioned I am fascinated by the end game of the Civil War and General Chamberlain writes well and does not hide his many conflicting emotions Of interest only to real Civil War buffs obviously but highly recommendedSome of his stories are impossibly tragic or horrific some are sweet and moving and some are just plain funny A few examples of the latter category are his uick thinking ruse when surrounded by Confederate soldiers during a battle how his young provost marshall and he himself became flustered by a beautiful Southern belle s reluctance to take an oath of loyalty to the Union official policy in order to receive a bag of potatoes for her starving family and General Chamberlain s reaction to seeing the first flag of truce mixed emotions including overwhelming relief but also in the back of his mind he couldn t help wondering Where on earth did they find such a white piece of cloth as every single thing in their camp and presumably the Rebels was dirty stained dusty ripped bloody etc An interesting anecdote in General Gordon s memoirs Gordon a Confederate general on hearing that Lee had surrendered wanted to stop the fighting where he was so he told his staff officer to send out a flag of truce The officer soon returns saying they didn t have any truce flags Fine tie a handkerchief to a pole then Just go The staff officer feels around in his pockets no handkerchief Then rip your shirt and tie that to a pole and go The officer looks at his shirt and at General Gordon s they ARE BOTH FLANNEL THE EXASPERATED GENERAL TELLS HIM TO both flannel The exasperated general tells him to something but GO So yes white cloths were not easily found in army campsI was also looking for
JLC S THOUGHTS ON THE MORALs thoughts on the moral of the war and his opinion of his opponents views since I am having a hard time understanding how so many good and brave Southerners could fight so vigorously for such a wretched cause Being a thoughtful man and a professor of religion JLC does not disappoint and I found his musings on this aspect of the war helpful Some of the battles were difficult to picture without maps but overall this was a fascinating book I would highly recommend this to anybod.

Or those of us who do Well written It took me a long time to read it because I really tried to cross reference the reports with the maps and geography That is what this book is essentially an annotated report by a man that was there This book covers sometimes excruciating detail about each moment of the final battle and the ultimate demise of the Confederate Army Chamberlain offers a lot of conjecture as well definitely writing from his point of view almost as if it was written as the events unfolded As I have said in many Civil War reviews it is hard to pick a side as a non participant removed from the events for over a century I have respect for both sides of the war This book was striking to me at how enemies new each other so well From Generals to Corporals down to many members of the calvary and infantry it truly was friend against friend brother versus brother etc I think that is sometimes overused and becomes a cliche but then is reaffirmed again and again with each Civil War account I also admire the deep religious convictions of those involved One line I really like that Chamberlain states after taking about 500 prisoners and Buck: A Memoir knowing that he has to care for them even though his own army was depleted of rations and in reference to the war in its total was Was it God s command we heard or His forgiveness we must forever imploreLater in the book he starts to describe the character and leadership of many of the generals on both sides His tribute to Lee is humbling After fighting against Lee for so many months and losing so many men and taking so many of Lee s men he applauds his character and leadership in defense He criticizes Lee s offense going back to Gettysburg and still struggling here I also really liked the Afterword I don tnow who the author of the afterword is but I really like how he breaks down the tributes paid to those involved in this war and the sobering stats regarding what books have written in comparison to other major US events Such a meaningful war for the Country yet so poorly represented in literature film and so on I was at first confused feeling like there This was an odd book at times war memoir at times spiritual and philosophical exploration of humanity at war The prose style feels a bit dated at times which makes sense for a book published in 1915 about events in the 1860s though Grant s memoirs written earlier feel modern in style Also a several sections of the book felt like Cham This review concerns the Kindle edition of Chamberlain s memoirs it is a fine example of the weakness of the Kindle to display maps diagrams images A reader would be better served finding a print edition of this book there are only two images in the Kindle edition one of Chamberlain as a young colonel and one in old age he would live until 1914 There are no maps Chamberlain s description of two ey battles preceding Appomattox the battles of White Oak Road and Five Forks are enmeshed in controversy due to Gen Phil Sheridan relieving Gen Gouvernor Warren They would lead to a court of inuiry five years after the war and Chamberlain strongly takes the side of Warren But the accounts are hard to follow without background on the characters and absent any diagrams of the movement in battle which even follow without background on the characters and absent any diagrams of the movement in battle which even terms cyclonic Two chapters on Appomattox are electric these you can trace with a #road atlas because of the efforts of Lee s army to flee Richmond towards Lynchburg Chamberlain s and #atlas because of the efforts of Lee s army to flee Richmond towards Lynchburg Chamberlain s and s troops move uickly to stem the escape of the Army of Northern Virginia and the former s description of the state of the armies is highly descriptiveInterest in Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain has revived since the release of the Turner Classic movie Gettsyburg which told the story of his Maine regiment defending Little Round Top which was the left flank of the Union army on the 4th of July 1863 Chamberlain would go on to be governor of Maine and president of Bowd.

General Joshua Chamberlain was a professor of literature at Bowdoin University in Maine in 1861 when the Civil War broke out In 1862 he reuested leave to travel to Europe for study and when he was granted his leave he promptly went to Augusta to volunteer with the Maine contingent of the Union army He would serve for 3 12 years with 5th Corps Army of the Potomac and saw action at Gettysburg where he won the Medal of Honor and in several battles at the end of the warThis book is an account of the last 10 days of the civil war in March to April 1865 Chamberlain writes his account not in the dispassionate perspective of the historian but as a fellow soldier who laments the sacrifices endured for the Union and the men lost in battle It is a very moving accountChamberlain spends most of the book discussing the three ey battles of the closing days of the Civil War the battle of White Oaks Road the subseuent battle of the Five Forks and finally the encounter at Appotomox Courthouse where General Lee surrendered his Army of Northern Virginia In his narrative of the battle of White Oak Road Chamberlain spends a considerable amount of time defending his commander and friend General Warren who was relieved of his command of 5th Corps by General Phil Sheridan for failing to be aggressive in the battle Warren was actually tried on these charges in a famous trial in 1879 1880 which included several ey Union Army commanders including Sheridan Sherman and Grant as well as Chamberlain Warren was acuitted of the charges as a result of the trial As this book was written in 1914 long after the war and the trial Chamberlain writes these words in a note of nostalgia and regret How many soldiers look back on their service with mixed emotions On the one hand they long for the comeraderie of the unit in which they served and on the other hand they regret the hardships and sacrifices that cost so many lives and limbs Chamberlain makes this very apparent in his descriptions of the final battles of the WarThe last few chapters of the book focus on the disbanding of the Union Army in the summer of 1865 Here Chamberlain is very nostalgic going into each unit that he commanded and served with showing their sacrifices and courage in battle Chamberlain is not critical of anyone in this book not the Union commanders or their units and not even the Confederates He sees his service in the War as a heroic sacrifice even an event of biblical proportions Looking back on it 50 years later it must surely have seemed so His memories of the battles the units and the soldiers that he served with are something that you will not get from a typical Civil War historyOverall I think this book is essential reading for the military professional the civil war historian and anyone with an interest in military or civil war history I have had an interest in the Civil War for some time Yet I first encountered Joshua Chamberlain JC when I read Blood Fire at Gettysburg This small Vignette of a book described the second day in the battle of Gettysburg when Chamberlain and his 2oth Maine defended Little Round Top The dialogue was the inner conversation that Chamberlain had with himself during battle His description of the battle was amazingly clear he described the brutality and heroism of a Civil War battle in a way that put the reader on the battlefield For instance after realizing that his Regiment was nearly out of ammunition He ordered Bayonets and as he described the event his whole regiment understood his thoughts and immediately began a charge as he described the event his whole regiment understood his thoughts and immediately began a charge ended the Confederate hopes of securing Little Round Top The case can be made that this action was instrumental in winning the battle for the Union Chamberlain won the Congressional medal of honor for his actions during this battleI searched f I would not recommend this book to someone that does not have a deep interest in Civil War books This book was awesome though Passing | Definition of Passing by Merriam Webster Passing definition is the act of one that passes or causes to pass;
