He is one of the more interesting characters in the "Gettysburg" movie and "The Killer Angels", but I have never seen reference to him anywhere else. I have books which pertain to the 20th Maine, including Truelock's book, another called simply "The 20th Maine" (Pullen), and another called "The Passing of the Armies" (I think written by Chamberlain himself), but no mention of this person. His story seems to be a little too "pat" to be real, but I don't know. Does anyone know if he was a real person? If he was indeed real, are the details fictionalized?
