Photographs and Artifacts
One of the most exciting aspects of the research we are doing is the discovery of unknown photographs and artifacts related to the 1st Minnesota and the people they contacted during their storied history.
Recently, for example, two unknown photographs of Cpl. Samuel Stebbins of Company K of the 1st Minnesota turned up in Florida. As a result, he is no longer a faceless veteran of the 1st. For more about Sam and other members of the 1st, go the terrific website assembled by Wayne Jorgenson at www.1stminnesota.net.
We know that many members of organizations like yours have private collections of Civil War memorabilia. We are asking them look over their collections to see if they have any information, photos, or artifacts related to the 1st Minnesota. Of particular interest just now is information about Cadmus Wilcox and the 9th, 10th, 11th and 14th Alabama Infantry Regiments as well as the Virginia Regiments who were part of Pickett’s Charge at Gettysburg.
We don’t know what archival discovery might yet be made that will have a dramatic effect on the film and our ability to tell the deep and rich history of one of the Civil War’s greatest regiments.
