Federal armies pushed slowly forward on multiple fronts while a huge mounted expedition swept into the Dakotas. Yet both Confederates and Indian warriors proved resilient foes. Minnesota remained a garrisoned state as its expanding population faced the challenges of full mobilization for war.

Hey South Carolina! If I played you a tune would you check out my novel? It's about both sides at the Battle of Island No. 10. Click here to see it: viewbook.at/RampageontheRiver
It has been nearly 3 weeks since we marched to Pennsylvania, and I apologize that it has taken me so long to tender these remarks to you. However, I can only offer by way of explanation that I have not had access to a real computer in that time, and my thoughts were more than I thought I could do justice by merely typing on my phone. So please forgive me for it taking so long. Without further ado, I will got on with it. So. Wow. That’s the only thing I can say at the start of any thoughts about the experience that we had in Pennsylvania. We had been looking at this event approach since I first gave General Hunt our commitment to attend in March 2017, a few weeks prior to even going to Shiloh. From that time, I have watched the even approach and grow nearer and nearer, and I still was caught completely unaware of how profoundly amazing the weekend would turn out to be. Given the unfortunate but random combination of life events by the men of this regiment, we can all agree this has been a tough year for us to get together and live and fight as one in the field. As the registration process got underway, I was never discouraged by the number of men I saw (or did not see), and I decided that I would commit myself as totally to helping the men of this battalion enjoy the weekend as those men had committed to showing up. And boy, did you commit. We have gone to a lot of national events, good and bad, together over the years. But I don’t think I have felt anything as close and tight-knit as I did at Gettysburg 155. We all started arriving at different times, some us of us (much) earlier than others. We came from different states in different cars, and some of us had never met before we arrived there. However, by Thursday night, having endured heat, rain, chiggers, closed roads, closed event sites, and constant asking of “Do you have your wrist band?!?!”, we somehow already felt to me like a single group, comrades-in-arms who had been together every second for years, and the camp felt right away like one at summer camp after several weeks of living there together and sharing experiences. When we awoke on Friday morning to kick off the fighting for which we had traveled there, the gloomy clouds and the sprinkling of rain didn’t dampen your spirits a bit. We arose from our bedrolls ready to accomplish the work before us, and we did it. We marched in the rain, stood in the steam cooker waiting, and then attacked in the renewed rain to drive the Iron Brigade back from that ridge. I know that for those who were not there, they will never know just how different and memorable our first glance of the enemy line was that morning. When we saw those black hats pop over the hilltop and then saw the massive Union line coming fast at us, all our hearts stopped in unison. The weather for the reast of the weekend was only beat by how amazing the rest of the weekend with you guys was. I never heard a complaint, never saw you balk. And believe me, there was plenty we COULD have complained about. But you men acted through every hindrance like the professional soldiers you strive to portray, and I personally could not be prouder. The fight in the Wheatfield on Saturday afternoon, even with the spectators close and the small size of the field, ranks in the top five battles I think I have ever fought. We were grim. We were gritty. There was nothing pretend about us pushing through that fence at the Emmitsburg road and pouring into the wheatfield like locusts, and then standing firm as the 1st Minnesota charged us at the double-quick until they stopped 25 yards from us and we traded volleys into each other’s faces. That moment there was one of the most realistic and connected moments I have experienced in my nearly 30 years reenacting. And that’s what reenacting is at its finest- realistic and connected. I could go on and on about the weekend before I get to what I really came here to say, but I won’t, except to finish something I started to say to you on Sunday morning, and as you remember, couldn’t finish. When I was imparting to you some advice on how to carry out the final battle of the weekend, I wanted to explain what it was that rendered me unable to finish speaking. As I was talking, I was also thinking about you. As I stood and spoke, I saw you staring back at me. I do not know what it was at that moment, but I was suddenly overcome not with tears about the men who made the charge in 1863, or even about how “this is Gettysburg, man!”. What you saw was the moment I was swept over by the profound honor it was to be your leader that weekend. It was only because of circumstances that I was in that position for that weekend. But the ease at which you men gave me not only your attentiveness but your trust to give you orders and direct you, not just in camp but on the battlefield moves me even now as I write this. You men can never know what a great privilege it was to sleep, eat, scratch, cook, and die beside you in Gettysburg. I will hopefully see you over and over in the future, but I know that this weekend will always be a one-of-a-kind in my heart. It was truly humbling, and you have my most sincere thanks for the privilege of being your colonel. As I told you in Gettysburg, I am also very thankful that those of you who did came, and that goes to each and every one of you. I am grateful that I was able to shake every one of your hands on Sunday to tell you that in person. We have a rest of the season to still accomplish, and I look forward to seeing all of you very soon. You are the reason I reenact, and my door is always open for you. God bless you all. Always leading beside you, Christopher C. Visser
Thanks for letting me spend part of the day with your group at Nashua yesterday!
