Regiment History: MINNESOTA 3RD INFANTRY - Three Years

Third Infantry. Cols., Henry C. Lester, Chauncey W.
Griggs, Christopher C. Andrews, Hans Mattson; Lieut.-Cols.,
Benjamin F. Smith, Everett W. Foster, James B. Hoit; Majs.,
John A. Hadley, Benjamin F. Rice, William W. Webster.

This regiment was organized during the summer and fall of 1861, and
was mustered in Nov. 15. It left the state on the 17th for
Louisville, where it went into camp. On Dec. 6, it left for
Shepherdsville, where six companies were detailed to guard
bridges, the other four being sent to Lebanon Junction for the
same purpose. It was assigned to the 16th brigade, Army of
the Ohio, went into camp near Nashville March 24, 1862, and on
April 27, moved to Murfreesboro, from which place several
expeditions were made.

It was at Murfreesboro in July, supporting a battery, when Forrest's cavalry charged, and was
finally surrendered to Forrest against the protests of most of
the men in line. A camp guard of 20 men had repulsed four
times that number in two assaults, but was finally overcome in
a third charge led by Forrest in person. All the officers who
advocated the surrender, including the colonel, were later
dismissed from the service. Lieut.-Col. Griggs and Capts.
Andrews and Hoit were the only officers present who voted
against surrendering. Lieut. Vanstrum offered his ballot, but
he arrived after the council was over.

The regiment was sent to Madison, Ga., for three months, then to Libby prison, where
it was paroled and sent to Nashville. An attempt was made to
induce the men to break their parole, and they were criticized
for surrendering. They resented the injustice, declined to
break their parole, and were sent to Benton barracks. Co. C,
commanded by Lieut. Grummons was at Shelbyville at the time of
the surrender and was sent to Tullahoma. It returned to
Murfreesboro, where it joined the 2nd Minn. infantry and was
ordered to Fort Snelling in October. There it joined the
regiment, which had been exchanged in August, and remained in
Minnesota to aid in putting down the Indian raids.

The regiment joined Gen. Sibley at Fort Ridgely in September,
after a forced march from Fort Snelling, and in the expedition
from the fort it was always in the advance. On the 23rd a
small party left camp to get a load of potatoes from Yellow
Medicine agency and it was attacked by a force of several
hundred Indians about a mile from camp. The 3rd was on the
ground in a few minutes and while falling back in order 250
men repulsed 700 Indians, then with reinforcements routed them
in a bayonet charge. This came to be known as the battle of
Wood Lake Camp was made at a point known later as Camp
Release, and there the regiment remained in the field until
Nov. 14, when it reported at Fort Snelling and was furloughed
until Dec. 3.

About 70 members who were home on sick leave
marched on Sept. 11, to the relief of Fort Abercrombie reached
there on the 23rd and participated in several skirmishes.
They joined the command at Camp Release in October. The
regiment was reorganized in December, Lieut.-Col. Griggs being
made colonel; Capt. Andrews, lieutenant-colonel, and
promotions were made from the ranks to fill the vacancies.
This went far towards restoring the morale of the regiment,
which had been affected by the unfortunate action at
Murfreesboro.

The ranks were soon recruited and on Jan. 23,
1863, the regiment left the state a second time, going to
Cairo, Ill., and thence to Columbus Ky. In March, it moved to
Fort Heiman and remained there some time to break up
Confederate conscription. In May, it was ordered to Vicksburg
and on June 8, reached Haynes' bluff, where it was made a part
of Kimball's provisional division of the 16th corps. It took
part in intrenching the place and on the 15th took position at
Snyder's bluff, remaining there until the surrender.

On July 23, it made part of a force for the campaign in Arkansas, and
was assigned to the 2nd brigade, 2nd division. It moved to
Helena, thence to Brownsville, on to Bayou Fourche, being
present at the engagement there in September, and made part of
the force that occupied Little Rock during the fall and
winter, being selected as one of the two infantry regiments
for "its efficiency and discipline." Reenlistment of most of
the men under the veteran order followed, and the old members,
three companies, were furloughed home in Jan., 1864.

On April 1, a detachment of the regiment participated in a sharp
conflict at Fitzhugh's woods, repelling a cavalry charge by a
counter charge with bayonets. The regiment took part in the
inauguration of Isaac Murphy first free-state governor of
Arkansas, and then moved to Pine Bluff for the summer where it
suffered much from malarial poison. Six companies were sent
home on furlough in August, and in October, the regiment
quartered at Devall's Bluff for winter, performing picket and
scouting duty. It moved to Batesville, May 13, 1865, and on
June 1, headquarters were established at Jacksonport.

Cos. D and G were left at Batesville A and F were sent to Searcy, E
and H to Augusta, and later C and I to Powhatan. On June 3,
Confederate Gen. Jeff Thompson surrendered his command to Col.
Mattson and the regiment was mustered out at Devall's Bluff
Sept. 2, 1865. Gov. Isaac Murphy, the only man in the
secession convention of Arkansas to vote "no," steadfast in
his allegiance to the Union, and the state's first free soil
governor, said of the men of the regiment: "They have proved
ready for any undertaking and reliable in every emergency.
Such men are an honor to the government. Their state may
justly be proud of them."
