The Surrender of Lee's Army
"Surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia to the Army of the Potomac as described to me by Genl. Chamberlain, who recd the surrender. My first lay out for a large picture which I propose to paint. J.R.C."
This lecture was given in Memorial Hall on the Bowdoin College Campus December 1882.
When compared with his later speech Appomattox
this speech, given to students and
local residents, is less concerned with details or orders and movements as his later speech given before the Loyal Legion.
The next speech Chamberlain would give on this topic would be The Third Brigade at Appomattox
