Joshua Lawrence Chamberlin

Chamberlain, Joshua Lawrence. FIVE FORKS.
Portland, Maine: Lefavor-Tower Company, 1902. 48 pp., folding map. First edition.
A Paper Read Before the Military Order of the Loyal Legion, Commandery of Maine, May 2, 1901.
Original printed wrappers, a few small chips at edge of wrappers. A near fine copy of this rare and important work.

Albert Castel stated: "Chamberlain had a most successful military career capped by his being chosen to command the Union troops
who were present when the Army of Northern Virginia lay down their arms."

This work and the accompanying map focuses on the actions of April 1, 1865 at the Battle of Five Forks, Virginia.
It includes Grant's pursuit of Lee after the lines broke. Chamberlain, formerly colonel of the 20th Maine, was then in command of a brigade of the Fifth Corps.
He gives on-the-spot eyewitness material and casts interesting reflections on the relationships between the two armies and their commanders.
An informative work by a gifted writer.

DORNBUSCH I, MAINE 120. Not in HAYNES: VIRGINIANA, though other works by Chamberlain are recorded.
