Night on the Field of Fredericksburg
This article is anonymous, but it is an exact copy of the one that appeared first in the Boston Congregationalist
December 25 1884. The one difference being "fatal" was added to the title.
I will not include the original here as the copy I have is not fully readable.
This was discovered through the small note in the Minutes of the General Conference of the Congressional Churches
Gov. Joshua L. Chamberlain returned from Florida, and resumed his Lectures on Political Science and Economy...
'Night on the field of Fredericsburg' by J.L.C. is published in Congl'st Dec 25, 84, and 'Last night of Fredericksburg,' March 26, 85.
Gen C. lectured before the Dartmouth Lecture Association."
Update: In searching for the second article, I have also found this article reprinted the following year in Camp-fire
sketches and Battle-field echoes.
See Last Night at Fredericksburg
Part of this appears in the book "The Civil War Archive" page 192, because this book quotes portions of
things people have mistakenly believed that these are new sources. Most authors will cite
Camp-fire sketches, however the Congregationalist was the first printing.
