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
