DT59001 - "Lions of the Round Top" by Don Troiani
Limited Edition Set #1263 of 2750

This set features the famous action by the 20th Maine and their commander, Colonel Joshua Chamberlain, on July 2, 1863, that saved the entire Union position at Gettysburg.

Posted at the extreme left flank of the Union lines, on a hill now forever known as Little Round Top, the men of the 20th Maine were ordered to hold the position at all costs.  Out of ammunition, Colonel Chamberlain ordered his men to "fix bayonets and charge!"  It worked, and the assaulting Confederate forces were driven back.
