Colonel Joshua Chamberlain in the 1860s.

Meet Colonel & Mrs. Chamberlain

Colonel and Mrs. Chamberlain are portrayed by Ted and Faye Chamberlain of Saint Joseph, Michigan who are members of the COUG group. Ted’s program last year on the topic of the 150th anniversary of the surrender at Appomattox was memorable and this year’s program with both Joshua and Fannie speaking will be equally informative. For the past twenty years Ted has indulged his lifetime love of American history by portraying his cousin, General Joshua Chamberlain, both of whom have enjoyed careers as soldier, clergyman, professor and businessman. Both Ted and Faye have completed graduate degrees and both share a passion for history told accurately and passionately.

The cost for the luncheon program is $40 per person for adults; $30 for children.
