Ellis Spear never made this transformation in the way many other veterans di.

Ellis Spear never made this transformation in the way many other veterans did. To him, war remained a miserable, horrifying experience to be mourned rather than glorified, and he had good reason to feel this wa. However, the writings contained herein come from the unusual point of view of a veteran who, though certainly worthy of the highest praise and glory for his Civil War record, viewed the war in a manner which is very different from the literature of his day.

Ellis Spear (October 15, 1834 – April 3, 1917) was an officer in the 20th Maine Volunteer Infantry Regiment of the Union Army during the American Civil War. On April 10, 1866, the United States Senate confirmed President Andrew Johnson's February 24, 1866 nomination of Spear for appointment to the grade of brevet brigadier general to rank from April 9, 1865. He was United States Commissioner of Patents in 1877-1878.

Had the 20th Maine broken before the onslaught, it might have had a domino effect on other hard-pressed Federal units along Cemetery Ridge. The 20th’s stand was a critical moment in what became a Yankee triumph the following day. Chamberlain and Spear both survived the war and lived long, prosperous lives, their friendship apparently firm.
