Civil War hero's medal rediscovered

A news article today reported on the discovery in a book of the original Medal of Honor won by Joshua Chamberlain at the Battle of Gettysburg. He was the colonel of the 20th Maine, which regiment played a key role in the battle. If you wanted to pursue some Civil War research this year we have resources in plenty; our catalog for books, article databases like America: History & Life, and much more. A great starting point to any history research would be our research guide to history.
