This book highlights a debate which took place some fifty years after the Battle of Fredericksburg regarding the role of the 20th Maine. In spite of their long friendship, Ellis Spear had become so irritated by the inability of the public to sort out the man from the legend that he lashed out at Chamberlain in this essay to try and set the record straight. Spear's response has, until this time, never been published. Paper, 1989, 104 pp.
