Since it's said that Chamberlain hardly ever drank this photo I found on the internet is extremely funny. I'm sure the General is rolling in his grave though......
I have no idea who made it, if it's a real Bourbon or if the picture is just a gag....but I find it very amusing.
Current Mood: amused

While surfing the internet I happened onto a site about ghosts, and it had a quote from our dear old Chamberlain on it: "You could not say from what world they came, or to what world they go" -Joshua Chamberlain 1864. I don't think I have read this one before and was curious if any of you guys might know when/why/where this quote is from. I also recently bought a collection of ghost stories and was surprised to find in it a story about the ghost of George Washington leading the 20th Maine to Gettysburg. Since reading that I have tried to find more info about this story on line; and there are lots of conflicting reports about it. Does anyone know if Chamberlain himself ever confirmed this sighting?

Chamberlain is my hero. I like a lot of people, I admire some, but there are very few who I just about worship; and Joshua Chamberlain is one. Oh I know he had his faults, and I like to poke fun at him sometimes; but you have to admit the man was amazing. Just the fact that he turned down a two year paid trip to Europe to go fight for something he believed in makes me love him. I mean if you gave me the choice of 2 years in Europe or going out to fight a terribly blood war; I'd be on my way to Europe, just tell me which flag to salute when I get back....(I'm a scardy cat)
Anyways post what ever you like about him, feel free to mention his faults (like do you wonder if the rumors of him actually beating his wife Fanny are true?); or discuss the civil war in general, or any civil war movies, books, or reenactments. Or just drop in and say hi.
