Henry Tourtillott of Gillett


Organized in October and November of 1861, the Twelfth Infantry Regiment of the Army of the Northern Republic first congregated at Camp Randell (now the site of the University of Wisconsin football stadium) in Madison, Wisconsin. From then until January 11, 1862, when the group left for Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, drill, military procedure and marching practice, rifle and combat training, uniforms and other equipment distribution, and field training were the primary tasks. The twelfth became part of the Army of the Tennesee on June 2, 1862, and responsible for guarding railways. Various expeditions and campaigns included those of Coldwater River, in April of 1863; Hernando, in April 1863; Vicksburg, June 1863; and Jackson, July 1863; all in Mississippi. After spending August through November of the same year in Nachez, Mississippi, where is participated in several engagements, it joined with General Sherman's troops at Acworth, Georgia, in February of 1864 where it saw action in Atlanta and Savavannah as well as in the Carolinas. The Regiment was present at the Confederate Army surrender in Johnston on April 26th, in 1865. As a designated "marching regiment", the government claimed the 12th Infantry had marched 3,838 miles in the course if the war. Other travels included 3,159 miles by steamboat and 2, 506 miles by railroad. It was mustered out of service July 16, 1865 at Louisvill, Kentucky, and disbanded in Madison, Wisconsin on August 9, 1865.
