3rd Minnesota Sergeants had the honor to drill the 4th Company as to be ready for battalion drill. The 4th Company consisted of some of the most elite soldiers of the 3rd & 5th Minnesota and of the 24th & 32nd Iowa.
Union, Confederate and Civilian tent cities like this one could be seen throughout the park and it was said there were over 900 pre-registrations.
Back at camp, the shelters were set & the boys fared well. A young civilian girl brought a pie that was well appreciated.
3rd Minnesota Civilians were there as well and found their camp surrounded by Wis. Cavalry. In 3rd Minnesota style, they were able to hold their ground to the advance of the cavalry.

The over 3 hr. drive was well worth it if all one did was the battalion drill.
