The Great Rebellion ~ The American Civil War

ALL MINNESOTA REGIMENTS


It seems that individual websites featuring the Civil War units represented by various Minnesota counties are few and far between. Because of this, I have included a page, "MEN FROM OTHER COUNTIES WHO SERVED WITH MINNESOTA REGIMENTS," on this site for soldiers from counties other than Wabasha. For the link, see the home page.


The following information, from The Soldiers and Sailors System, is a listing of all Minnesota Regiments and gives their formation and service information. I have not included the rosters here, but you can find them on the above-mentioned site.

The Soldiers and Sailors System contains information for all Civil War units, both Union and Confederate, and their complete rosters.
