As a civil war buff I had to visit this place on a recent trip to Maine. The tour was reasonably priced and well presented by a knowledgeable guide This place is a piece of history all should see. As a professor, governor and medal of honor recipient, all Americans should come here.

The Joshua L Chamberlain museum in Brunswick, ME is a must see for any civil war history buff. The tour will give you a greater perspective of this great man's life after his civil war days were finished. The tour guide did a great job and was very informative. If you decide to go read " In the Hands of Providence" by Alice Rains Trulock before your visit and it will give you an even better understanding.
