Comments  Summary  Contents  Author Notes

Summary: Amidst the chaos of a two-front war -- one against the Confederacy and the other against the Dakota Indians -- Brackett's Battalion of Mionnesota Cavalry transformed from raw recruits into seasoned and battle-hardened troops and served longer than any other Minnesota unit in the Civil War. Told through the extant journals, diaries and letters of the troopers themselves, this book brings to light a long neglected aspect of Minnesota's role in the Civil War and reveals a side of the conflict rarely portayed in the war's literature.
