Description: The battle for the southern slope of Little Round Top at Gettysburg on July 2, 1863, remains one of the most famous small unit military actions in American history. Maine historian Thomas A. Desjardin her focuses his attention on the story of the 20th Maine Regiment, a tale that has fascinated him since his first visit to Gettysburg at age 10. This stirring work is the culmination of years of detailed research on th experiences of the soldiers, as it beautifully narrates the complete story of the unit in the Gettysburg Campaign, from June 21 through July 10 1863.

Desjardin uses more than seventy firsthand accounts of the battle for Vincent's Spur and aptly describes the circumstances of that fight in critical detail. He brings the personal experiences of the soldiers to life focusing on both sides and revealing the actions and feelings of the men from Alabama who tried, in vain, to seize the important position.

From the lowest ranking private to the highest officers, this book explores the experiences of war and their tragic effects. Following th regiment through the campaign enables readers to understand fully th soldiers' feelings towards the enemy, towards citizens of both the North and the South, and towards the commanders of the two armies. In addition, this book traces the development of a legend, as veterans of th fight struggle to remember, grasp, and memorialize their part in the largest battle ever fought on the continent.
