Chamberlain's Medal of Honor Discovered at Church Sale

From the September 10, 2013, CBS News. /// General Joshua Chamberlain received his Medal of Honor in 1893 for his heroism at the Battle of Gettysburg. It was recently given to the Pejepscot Historical Society, a town where he lived for fifty years. /// It was given to his granddaughter and upon her death in 2000, her estate was donated to the First Parish Church of Duxbury, Massachusetts. /// Someone found the Medal of Honor in a book bought from the church and was nice enough to give it to the historical society. /// Always Good News to Heat Things Like This. That Medal Would Have Been Worth Big Money. ---Old Secesh
