This article states Warren was known as the "Hero of Little Round Top." Wasn't that Joshua Chamberlain who was known by that name? (talk) 02:52, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

Chamberlain is known as the Lion of LRT, as you can see by reading his bio article. There were a number of heroes there that day--JLC, Strong Vincent, Paddy O'Rorke, Charles Hazlett--but Warren's nickname is pretty commonly cited. Without GKW, none of those other guys would have had a chance at heroism that day. Hal Jespersen (talk) 16:40, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

I would also like to point out that in Oliver W. Norton's narrative, as well as that of Glen LaFantasie, the actual placing of troops atop LRT was done by Strong Vincent, not Warren. Vincent did so of his own endeavor, since his division commander wasn't present. (That being just a thought since I'm researching this stuff right now) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:54, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
