In guild First Minnesota Historical Wargame Society


Did a First Minnesota Historical Wargame Society tshirt containing 1st MN counters from American Civil War games.

Andrew III commented:

The three counters from Gamers/MMP games (in the middle) are great representatives of the 1st's steely resolve. They all have 'A' morale, which is rare in those titles, and even rarer for a Union unit. The counter on the left, from 3 Days of Gettysburg is pretty badass, too. It has a cohesion rating of '8,' and since cohesion checks in GBACW are d10 rolls to get less than or equal to the cohesion rating to pass, they're pretty tough!

I think we might have missed a few; please help us find them all!

From wiki:

The First Minnesota Volunteer Infantry Regiment mustered for a three-year term (1861-1864) in the Union Army at the outset of the American Civil War when the prevailing enlistment period was three months. During offensive movements, it sustained high degrees of casualties at the Battles of First Bull Run (20%) and Antietam (28%) and a catastrophic degree of casualties (82%) at the Battle of Gettysburg. It is most noted for its service on the second day at Gettysburg.

When given the opportunity to speak about the Regiment after the war, both General Hancock and U.S. President Calvin Coolidge were unrestrained with praise. Hancock placed its heroism highest in the known annals of war and ascribed unsurpassed gallantry to the famed attack. Emphasizing the criticality of the circumstances on July 2 at Gettysburg, President Coolidge considered, "Colonel Colvill and those eight companies of the First Minnesota are entitled to rank as the saviors of their country."

This game has a 1st MN counter, in the old GBACW style, but there aren't any good pictures on the 'geek of the 1st Manassas counter sheet.

The 1st MN is represented by two counters for First Bull Run, because the regiment was still pretty large at that stage. One of the counters has a gray border, which indicates that the unit can be subject to friendly fire due to their uniforms! There are several units on the Union side that get this treatment, and a couple of Confederate units with blue borders. I think this is a pretty neat rule, reflecting the strange mix of uniforms on both sides. Some Union troops wore gray because it was the traditional color for militia uniforms (and cheap), and some Confederate units wore blue because it was the traditional uniform color for the national army. There were also zouave units on both sides in French-style uniforms. The 1st MN went to battle at First Bull Run in black pants and red flannel lumberjack shirts, which didn't mark them as distinctly belonging to one side or the other. While I'm a little disappointed that they didn't depict them that way on their counters, I think it's cool that it was reflected in a special rule.

Not sure if it's supposed to represent the whole regiment, or just the 1st MN Sharpshooters.
