This cover is postmarked Philadelphia, Pa., Nov. 5, 1858, retains its original stamp, and is self-addressed in Shaw’s hand Abner. O. Shaw Esq. Portland, Maine. As surgeon of the 20th Maine Infantry Regiment , Maine physician, Abner O. Shaw had a distinguished Civil War record and is best remembered for his night long work in a Petersburg field hospital when he was brought to the aid of the horribly wounded Col. Joshua L. Chamberlain by the fallen hero’s brother, Capt. Thomas Chamberlain. Surgeon Abner O. Shaw would be credited with saving the life of the Colonel, soon to be Brigadier General Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain. The skilled regimental surgeon remained a close friend and the lifelong personal physician to Chamberlain. A nice Chamberlain, 20th Maine related Civil War relic without spending a lot of money. As with all direct sales, we are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with refund of the purchase price upon return as purchased! Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
