Historian and journalist Michael Golay has written a full-scale joint biography of two remarkable men of Gettysburg: Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, the scholarly amateur who saved the day at Little Round Top, and Edward Porter Alexander, the outstanding confederate artillery expert whose enigmatic message launched Pickett's charge. From Manassas to Appomatox, Chamberlain and Alexander fought in nearly every major eastern battle of the Civil War. Tested by the savagery of combat, Chamberlain mastered the soldier's art and rose to become one of the best of the Union's frontline infantry commanders. Alexander, artillerist and engineer, indispensable aide to Lee and Longstreet, built a reputation as one of the most brilliant officers of the Confederacy. - Jacket flap.
