A History of the 44th Regiment New York Vol. Infantry
by Eugene Arus Nash, 1911

Fighting side by side with the 20th Maine through battles such as Fredericksburg and Gettysburg, this regiment had a great love and respect for the 20th Maine and their Colonel as is evidenced by this history.
    They write of Gettysburg, "Too much credit can not be given to General Chamberlain and his gallant regiment for their valorous and unflinching conduct in maintaining against great odds the extreme left of the general line."
For the chapter on Gettysburg see page 139 - 158
    I'll open the book to the Antietam Campaign where the 20th joins the brigade...

Page 148 talks of Col. Fisher's failure to support the 20th Maine in taking Big Round Top causing the 83rd Pa and 44th NY to go to their aid.
