Does anyone know the actual story on this man? I'm reading "Army Life: A Private's Reminiscences of the Civil War," by Theodore Gerrish, a member of the 20th Maine, and he describes a very moving scene where, during a lull in the fighting on LRT, Joshua Chamberlain kneels over the dying Private Buck and restores him to the rank of Sergeant. Which seems like a pretty decent thing to do seeing as how Chamberlain probably had a lot of other things on his mind just then. Looking on CWT website for more info though, I find some folks don't think Gerrish is a very reliable source. It seems like the more I read, the less I know. Are there any good first person accounts of the 20th Maine? If this is covered in another thread, please direct me there. Thanks!
