Battle of Antietam, specifically, the charge of Iron Brigade near the Dunker Church, on the morning of September 17, 1862. Chromolithograph by Louis Prang and Company of an original painting by Thure de Thulstrup

Iron Brigader is about the American Civil War.  The people, places, battles and campaigns, books, battlefield preservation, you name it.  Everything from short anecdotes to article length pieces will be found here.  The purpose is to inform in an interesting and to a degree, entertaining manner.  History isn’t dull, but it is often presented in a dull and boring fashion.  It doesn’t have to be that way, and we won’t do it that way here.  Enter a term in the search box to see what we have on that topic.

The Iron Brigade was a Union Army brigade consisting of the 2nd, 6th, and 7th Wisconsin Infantry, the 19th Indiana Infantry, and the 24th Michigan Infantry.  They distinguished themselves in many actions, but are particularly remembered at Antietam and Gettysburg.  It seemed to be an appropriate name for this blog.
