Join best selling author Ronald C. White in the Kinsley Theater at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center as he brings us a cradle-to-grave biography of General Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain. White’s presentation focuses on Gen. Chamberlain’s life from his upbringing in rural Maine to his tenacious, empathetic military leadership and his influential post war public service. White will explore a question that still plagues so many veterans: How do you make a civilian life of meaning after having experienced the extreme highs and lows of war?
