Did the 20th Maine Win Gettysburg?

Here's an interesting, short article about the 20th Maine and how they are portrayed in current history and fiction from The Guardian: The Maine Lesson of Gettysburg.


Historians have long known the effects of fiction and public opinion on the interpretation of history.  This is one I've been wondering about for the past few years but didn't do much research into it.

Hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday whether you are at Gettysburg, home or doing something else fun!
