The first link is from the movie "Gettysburg".  The other two are both from the comedian, inspirational lecturer, Andy Andrews, telling the same story.  Joshua Chamberlain was an incredible man, who at the end of the war, was the general who received the arms of the Confederacy as part of the surrender.  At that time he was a Brigadier General.  He returned to civilian life after the war, and became governor of Maine.

After watching these three links I think you will have an appreciation of how history, sometimes, hangs by a thread.
