    Medal of Honor Winner Gettysburg

    Joshua Chamberlain: Carte-de-Visite and Signature. Colonel Chamberlain (1828-1914) and his 20th Maine Volunteers successfully defended Little Round Top during the Battle of Gettysburg against a sustained and organized Confederate assault, earning him the Medal of Honor, the adoration of the Northern public, and the grudging respect of his foes. Twice wounded in later battles, Chamberlain, a major general at the end of the war, presided over the surrender ceremony on April 12, 1865, at Appomattox Courthouse. During the ceremony, his Union troops saluted the Southern troops, a controversial gesture. Nevertheless, his wartime popularity propelled him to four terms as Maine's governor. This lot includes a war-time CDV of Chamberlain by Murlless of Northampton, Massachusetts paired with his autograph on a 4" x 2.5" album page.
