Colonel Joshua Chamberlain Speech.wmv. Colonel Joshua Chamberlain gives his speech to the deserters of the old 2nd Maine, hoping to inspire them to join his depleted unit in the upcoming battles at Gettysburg.
By the third day of Gettysbyrg, he had lost at least half his Men, so it was good that those 120 Men joined!
p.s Yes, he was talking to Men from the 2nd Maine, not the 20th. The 2nd had been disbanded, but these Men had an extra year to serve and he was trying to talk them into joining the 20th.
