Regimental History, MINNESOTA, NINTH INFANTRY,(Three Years)
Co. G, having a goodly number of Chippewa Indians and half-breeds was sent to Fort Abercrombie about Sept. 3. It found the fort besieged by Sioux Indians and joined in the attack which routed them. It was mustered in Oct. 30 and engaged in guard and outpost duty during the spring and summer of 1863, the Indians of the company proving valuable as scouts. It gained a reputation later as skirmishers and flankers, unequalled by any other company.
