Hate to be a "spoiler" for this "movie," but I suspect Isaac will fall silent after July 2 of this year ... he was killed while falling-back after the famous charge and stand along Plum Run during the Battle of Gettysburg, July 2, 1863. An artillery shell burst above him, and the fragments rained down an almost cleaved him half, head to waist.

I'm curious to know if this project extents to the 1st Minnesota Regiment only? Minnesota was not only the first state to offer troops, but provided more troops per capita than any other state. While the actions of the 1st Minnesota are more famous, the actions of the 2nd Minnesota, and the rest of Grants army at Vicksburg had a larger impact on the war. I guess that what I'm asking is just how big this project is ?
