A handsome and critical addition to the library of every historian, genealogist, and Civil War buff, this rare two-volume set is the official record of Minnesotas participation in the Civil and Dakota Wars. Published in two parts in the 1890s and written by the men who fought in battle, "Minnesota in the Civil and Indian Wars" contains regimental rosters (names lists with ages, muster dates, transfers, and remarks) as well as detailed narratives describing the wartime service of each regiment, battery, battalion, and brigade -- their marches, campaigns, battles, surrenders, wounded lists, furloughs, re-enlistments, and return to Minnesota. Letters, telegrams, and descriptions related to the development of the Dakota War, including dispatches written from the field, offer a personal face to this wartime history. Included is a 144-page index to all the regimental rosters, making this an invaluable research tool. Together, these volumes are the essential reference for Minnesotas troops and their campaigns.
