    Description

    Joshua Chamberlain Signed Carte de Visite. 2.5" x 4", a bust profile in uniform, with a Brady, New York backstamp on verso. Signed below the image: "J.L. Chamberlain." Under Chamberlain's signature has been written in pencil in an unknown hand: "Brevet Maj Gen Vols." On verso is an old ink stamp that identifies the CDV as coming from "Collection of Chas. B. Hall."

    Joshua 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.

    Condition: Light toning throughout. Minor soiling on front, with moderate soiling on verso. Pencil notations on verso. Boldly signed.
