September 2018 Webinar

On, Wisconsin! The 24th Infantry, 1862-1865, Brothers Forever
  • Presenter: Jean Wilcox HibbenJean Wilcox Hibben
  • Date:  Tuesday, September 18, 2018
  • Time: 7:00 PM CST
  • Webinar Description: In 1862, Wisconsin got the 2nd call for volunteers for the Union Army in the Civil War. The 24th was comprised of many Germans, along with many long-time Milwaukee residents, including the commanding officer, Arthur MacArthur. The life of this unit is seen through records of a Milwaukee pioneer and private in Company I, focusing on what records are available (and where) for others searching Wisconsin Civil War soldiers. The soldiers from this and other units made up part of the population of the state, contributing to it long after the War. But the veterans were forever connected because of their shared experience; find out why and how. Drawing some from the book by W.J.K. Beaudot, historical records, newspapers, military, and GAR documents, the regiment's history will come to light for family, Civil War, and Wisconsin historians.
