Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain at Little Round Top  depicts the legendary Civil War hero about to make the famous charge down Little Round Top, thereby saving the entire Federal army. His men being completely out of ammunition led Col. Chamberlain to order a rare bayonet charge which swept the Rebels from the field.

Below are some fascinating views of the clay maquette of Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain at Little Round Top as the finished sculpture emerges.   (See below for links to the completed piece in bronze and pecan )wood

The figure is painted a reddish color to highlight any remaining imperfections which would be less observable in the clay color.

Ready to be cast!  Now sculptor Randy Groves waits for the bronze and pecan figures to be delivered.  Because the detail on these will be considerably sharper, he will only see how his vision is realized when they arrive from the casting company.
