Today, we celebrate the birthday of Joshua Chamberlain. Born in Maine on September 8, 1828, he served in the Union Army in the Civil War and was present at the Confederate surrender at Appomattox Courthouse. I’ve created copywork from one of his books to share a glimpse of the bravery and courage of both sides of this war and the emotion of knowing the war was finally over.
