1st Minnesota Volunteer Infantry
« on: April 13, 2015, 11:52:45 pm »
Time to give such a historic regiment new light in the community, since all the older ones have disbanded or are inactive.



The First Minnesota Infantry Regiment was one of the first units organized after President Lincoln's call for 75,000 troops in April, 1861. The regiment quickly filled with enthusiastic men from all parts of Minnesota and was one of the few regiments that received training by a qualified officer. Colonel Gorman was a demanding but competent taskmaster and by July, 1861 the regiment had been sent east and fought with distinction at the battle of Bull Run under Colonel Gorman's leadership. The regiment participated in all the major campaigns of the Army of the Potomac through the fall of 1863 and a portion of the command called the First Battalion was present at Appomattox, the final battle of the war. The regiment had 11 companies from larger cities and areas of the time.

The First Minnesota performed one of the most critical actions of the battle during Longstreet’s Assault of July 2nd. Sickles’ Corps was falling back in disarray and Longstreet’s men were advancing to penetrate the center of the Union line, which had been dangerously thinned to prop up other sectors. General Hancock rode up to the 1st Minnesota, the only organized Union troops at hand, pointed at the advancing Confederates, and ordered them to “Take those colors!” Their sacrificial charge against overwhelming odds halted the Confederate advance and bought time for the Union line to reform, forcing Lee into one last desperate gamble with Pickett’s Charge the next day. The survivors of the 1st Minnesota played a role in repulsing that charge as well.
