The legend of Joshua Chamberlain on Little Round Top is almost immortal, but Thomas A. Desjardin's account of the 20th Maine at Gettysburg gives credit for the hill's successful defense to Chamberlain's men. Drawing from the letters and journals of soldiers in the 20th Maine, as well as those of the opposing Alabama infantrymen, Desjardin narrates the climactic battle and the subsequent battle over Little Round Top in the public's memory. Appendices provide rosters and casualty lists. Now in a third edition.
