20th Maine Monument (Carmel, Maine)

Description:

The 20th Maine Monument which sits in Chamberlain Freedom Park, Brewer is a replica of the eponymous monument situated in Little Round Top, Gettysburg. The monument, like the one in Gettysburg, commemorates the 386 men of the 20th Maine Volunteers who secured the Union left flank in Little Round Top on the 2nd of July 1863, against the Alabamians. The Brewer monument, dedicated in 1997, unlike its counterpart in Little Round Top, bears no inscription of the men that died in battle. The monument was created to compliment the statue of Joshua L Chamberlain to whom the park is named after, as he led the charge in Gettysburg, for which he was awarded with the Medal of Honor.
