Return of 2nd Wisconsin
Regimental Event & Parade, Madison

This was a grand affair, while participating in it, while watching itI developed more of a respect for the 2nd Wisconsin and the Iron Brigade. It truly was a force to be reckoned with, and the reenactors of today do a very good job at honoring their memory. No, matter where I go, and what I do I will always have respect, honor and love for those in the Second Wisconsin, and the Iron Brigade. Following is something I wrote about them on a Civil War Reenactors list,I can not praise them enough.

December 7, 1998

Yes !!

The 2nd Wisconsin, was fantastic, everything was perfect...but the one thing I will always remember is how they all looked coming up the hill to the capitol.

An awesome sight indeed, powerful, and as I saw them past I was filled with an awe and a sense of pride. I will never forget that day or that sight, maybe how I felt that day is how one felt the day that the boys MEN came home. One thing that was unusual, it started to rain for a bit, when the speeches were going on. but as fast as it came it left.

No, I will never forget that day, no matter where I go, I will always remember how the Second Wisconsin looked, powerful, majestic ...and a force to be reckoned with, and the awe and the pride I felt as they went by.

Yes, they did very well indeed.

and because of the type of people these those soldiers were, and the reenactors that portray them honor, and glory will continue to follow them.
