Union Veterans Reunion In Wisconsin

The 28th Wisconsin Volunteer Regiment was recruited during the summer of 1862 in Waukesha and Walworth Counties, Wisconsin and was organized at Camp Washburn, Milwaukee. Ten companies of a bit less than 100 men each had responded to President Lincoln’s second call for volunteers. The 28th Regiment was mustered into United States service in October 1862. They spent the next 9 weeks training at Camp Washburn, near Milwaukee, before boarding railcars and heading south in December 1862.

On June 25, 1912 surviving veterans of the 28th Wisconsin Volunteer Regiment met to honor the 50th anniversary of the Civil War in Waukesha, Wisconsin.
