History Hounds Series: Bodyguards of the Cumberland: The Story of the 9th Michigan Infantry
February 6 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join the Special Collections staff in the Judith Stillion Conference Room as we live-stream the Historical Society of Michigan’s History Hounds presentation. Hosted every other Tuesday at 12 pm. “Mustered into federal service on October 15, 1861, the 9th Michigan Infantry Regiment has a lengthy and notable Civil War service record over its time spent in service. Several companies were captured in one of the regiment’s first battles, the First Battle of Murfreesboro. Then, the company rose in favor with General Henry Thomas, the commander of the Army of the Cumberland. The 9th eventually was assigned guard duty over the captured Champ Ferguson, a notorious Confederate guerilla. Join the presenter to learn about those interesting scenarios and the history of this unique regiment.”
