Introducing the Third Michigan

If you're looking for information on the Third Michigan Infantry (first organization) and the men who served in the regiment from June of 1861 to June of 1864, well you've come to the right place. (photo: Third Michigan monument in the Peach Orchard, Gettysburg, PA.)

First up will be a very, very brief history of the regiment during the war -- if you want to know more we will be publshing an ebook format of the regimental history in late 2006 or early 2007, completely new, updated, thoroughly researched with extensive footnotes, bibliography appendices and an exhaustive surname index.

Subsequent journal entries will deal with the men of regiment: how many actually served in the "Old" Third, how old were they, where were they born, and plenty more biographical information.

So stay tuned!
