Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain: Pieces of the Puzzle 5:00 PM 4 Noble Street , Brunswick

Please join Pejepscot History Center in welcoming celebrated biographer Ron White as he discusses his latest research about Gettysburg hero and Maine icon, Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain: Pieces of the Puzzle.


The renewal of interest in Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain was powered by the historical novel Killer Angels (1974), the Ken Burns documentary The Civil War (1990), and the portrayal of Chamberlain by Jeff Daniels in the movie Gettysburg (1993). More recently, a push back has arisen among some who feel Chamberlain had become too big for his Civil War britches--accusing him of exaggerating if not falsifying his accomplishments in speeches and writings after the war.


Ron White, returning to Maine to complete his research for a comprehensive biography of Chamberlain to be published by Random House in 2023, will discuss some of the pieces in the Chamberlain puzzle he has found most fascinating. He is eager to hear comments and questions about the Brunswick hero who continues to enthrall a wide audience.


This event will be held at the Brunswick Hotel, 4 Noble Street, Brunswick.


Tickets: PHC Members: $8 (and we cover the processing fee!); Non-Members: $12. Cash bar. PHC provides light snacks.
