It's a rare event when a previously undiscovered Joshua Chamberlain manuscript turns up, but that is just what happened when Civil War author Diane Monroe Smith discovered it while researching her acclaimed biography of Maine's best known Major General, Fanny and Joshua. Chamberlain wrote this account of his role in the Battle of Petersburg, June 18, 1864, and Smith puts this gem into context with a thorough consideration of the events of Grant's Overland Campaign that led up to the battle, and comprehensive annotation of Chamberlain's account. Smith's husband Ned Smith, also a Civil War author, researched and created the maps necessary to follow the action in this one of a kind account.
