Mort Künstler's Comments
"This painting captures the moment, late in the afternoon of July 2, 1863, when Joshua L. Chamberlain led his famous bayonet charge. This gave me a chance to use the filtering sunlight through the wooded Little Round Top and to focus the attention on the heroic professor-turned-warrior, as he led his 20th Maine down the south-western slope of Little Round Top. The big boulder in the foreground is still a prominent landmark at the scene of the charge. The trees were different then, as depicted in the painting, but, like today, the forest there was a mixture of old and new growth.

"The red Maltese Cross on the cap of the color bearer identifies him as a member of the First Division, V Corps. The "20" on his cap identifies the 20th Maine and the United States flag was the only banner carried by the regiment into battle that day. The dent in Chamberlain's scabbard shows where a bullet first hit before striking his leg - a deflection which saved him from a serious wound."
