Search Wisconsin Regiments

Find firsthand accounts describing Wisconsin troops' actions both on and off the battle field. Search letters, diaries, newspaper clippings and memoirs to follow a regiment through the war.

As the Civil War progressed, units collapsed, expanded, and recombined over time as soldiers were killed, injured, promoted, or left military service.

Browse Regiments

To learn about any Wisconsin regiment, select it from the drop down list below.

You will see a summary of basic facts about the regiment and its important engagements, followed by links to view a longer history, the roster, list of casualties, and assignments to larger units such as brigades or corps. A link to view original letters, diaries, memoirs, pictures, and other eyewitness accounts produced by its members is also provided.
