The problem with Little Round Top is that its importance is overstated. The story of the 20th Maine is interesting but historically speaking, even if the 20th Maine had been overrun, the Union Sixth Corps was right nearby and could have easily retaken the hill as there wasn't any additional Southern forces available to exploit and success.
A more pivotal action was the actions of the 19th Maine at Cemetery Ridge. If you want to read up on some lesser known but more important actions, this would be a good place to start.
