Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
To find such incredibly well-researched and detailed accounts of the day to day events
of my great-grandfather, Joseph J. Buck and his infantrymen during the Civil War and the Dakota War
is truly a gift. How I wish we had more pictures of them during this time. I only have two photos of him,
one on his wedding day in 1880 and one as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Civil War. I knew some of his Civil War escapades,
but to learn about their Northwestern Indian Expedition of 1864 is like looking right into their lives.
Their descendants should be proud of their service to our country, at a time when unrest was a common, daily event.
Their bravery and perseverance are to be so incredibly admired. Researching the genealogy of my GGrandfather's life has
come full circle with this great account.

Thank you, Kurt Bergemann! Our ancestors served with each other!

Finally a comprehensive review of the journeys of Brackett's Minnesota Ballation Cavalry Volunteers. I was able to track the travels of one of my ancestors from his enlistment to untimely death in the Dakota Territory. Well written, informative and entertaining. A must for anyone looking for more information about this segment of Civil War activity.

My name is Doug Stoltzman and my great grandfather Florence Garen served with Brackett's Battalion thru the entire Civil War. Kurt Bergemann was tireless in his research for this book and did, I feel, an excellant job of recording the battalion's history, people, and characters. It is both factual and personal. One not only gets the history but also the human side of the unit. A very good read.
