In this iconic photograph, veterans of the 20th Maine including General Chamberlain seated at right center, pose on Vincent's Spur with their monument sitting on a large boulder on the left. Next to Chamberlain are the furled colors that flew here on July 2nd, 1863. In his speech given that day, Chamberlain clarified the location of the monument was where the colors flew after it became the apex for his line after being refused to the left. In other words, that is where his line bent back to the left from this point. The rock wall seen in the photo and fronting their position today was a source of frustration for the General. He insisted the rock walls were not there during the time the 20th fought here and demanded they be removed. He later compromised his position by agreeing to leave the wall as as long as there was a sign present that clearly states they were not there during the fighting on July 2nd, 1863. Shown below is my then and now using the reunion photograph and a photo of Chamberlain's sign that can be seen today on Sykes Avenue at the 20th Maine's position.
