The Professor from Maine

By 1860, he was chair of the Department of Modern Languages and contemplating two years hence a promised leave of absence to study in Europe. Chamberlain did not answer his country's initial call to war. For one thing, his domineering father bitterly opposed the war. Further, Bowdoin College was not a bastion of either abolitionism or active unionism. It wasn’t until the summer of 1862 that Chamberlain finally offered his services to the Union Army.
