THE LION OF ROUND TOP: The Life and Military Service of Brigadier General Strong Vincent in the American Civil War
Restores Vincent to his rightful place among the heroes of the battle of Gettysburg by presenting his life story using never-before-published sources and archival material. Citizen-soldier Strong Vincent was many things: Harvard graduate, lawyer, political speaker, descendent of pilgrims and religious refugees, husband, father, brother. But his greatest contribution to history is as the savior of the Federal left on the second day at Gettysburg, when he and his men held Little Round Top against overwhelming Confederate numbers. Forgotten by history in favor of his subordinate, Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, Vincent has faded into relative obscurity in the decades since his death.1 vol, 216 pgs 2022 US, CASEMATE
