The left hand of Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain--Civil War hero, sixth president of the College, Governor of Maine, and to this day arguably Bowdoin's most famous alumnus--holding his hat, as memorialized by sculptor Joseph Query. The statue was dedicated on the edge of campus at the corner of Park Row and Maine Street, just across from Chamberlain's former residence, on Saturday, May 31, 2003. Read President Mills's remarks from the dedication.
