History: Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain
Join us as we read ‘On Great Fields, The Life and Unlikely Heroism of Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain’ written by Ronald C. White. Jon Meacham says this is ‘a vital and vivid portrait of an unlikely military hero who played a key role in the preservation of the Union and therefore in the making of Modern America.’ Some great questions to consider: How did a stutttering boy come to be fluent in nine languages and even taught speech and rhetoric at Bowdoin College? How do you make a civilian life of meaning after having experienced the extreme highs and lows of war? Come have fun with us. Class will not meet February 21. The book is available via the registration form for $28.
