In full: Can I get any recent statistics of Agriculture? Boardman telegraphed me last night that the State Fair was postponed one week. That being the case I can do a little more in my address in the way of inference of recent statistics. Can you give me anything? I would be extremely glad also if you would make any suggestions in regard to my line of remark in the coming address. Assigned to brigade command in June 1864, he was wounded 12 days later in the assault on Petersburg. Chamberlain was promoted to Brigadier General on the spot by General Grant, then carried to the rear, where a surgeon declared that he would certainly die from the wound; he did, 50 years later (the last solider to die of Civil War wounds).
At Appomattox, Chamberlain was given the honor of commanding the troops that formally accepted the surrender of the Confederate Army. After serving four terms as Governor of Maine, Chamberlain became President of Bowdoin College.
