Stand Firm Ye Boys from Maine

The 20th Maine and the Gettysburg Campaign

Fifteenth Anniversary Edition

Thomas A. Desjardin

With a new preface and updated maps and illustrations, Stand Firm Ye Boys of Maine offers a compelling account of one of the most crucial small engagements of the Civil War. This powerfully narrated history tells the story of the 20th Maine Regiment, the soldiers who won the battle of Little Round Top. The culmination of years of detailed research, the book uses more than seventy first-hand accounts to bring the personal experiences of the soldiers to life, relating the story from both sides.
