Northern Border Brigade


At the beginning of the Civil War as Iowa sent troops south to combat the Confederate Army, the Indian tribes in northern Iowa and Minnesota took advantage of the absence of soldiers on the frontier and raided the frontier families.  Any that did not retreat to the interior of the state did not survive.

The governors of Iowa and Minnesota set forth the task of protecting these pioneer families and the Northern Border Brigade was born.  You can read the full text from the Annals of Iowa 1871 on the History site by visiting HERE.
