Joshua Chamberlain's Medal of Honor Returned-- Part 1

From the January 2013 Brunswick (Maine) Times Record "Chamberlain's nedal to be returned to Brunswick" by J.T. Leonard. //// The original Medal of Honor awarded to Maine's Colonel Joshua Chamberlain was discovered in the bacl of a book in Duxbury, Massachusetts. //// In July, shortly after Brunswick's annual Chamberlain Days celebration, the Pejopscal Historical Society received a package from a donor who wished to remain anonymous. //// Historical Society director Jennifer Blanchard was skeptical, however. She knew that Chamberlain's Medal of Honor was redesigned in 1904, and he was reissued one n 1907. //// More to Come. --Old Secesh
