Biographical / Historical

The 3rd Regiment, Minnesota National Guard, became the 14th Minnesota, U.S. Volunteer Infantry, mustering into federal service in May 1898.  Sent to Georgia with the 12th Minnesota, the regiment eventually transferred to Camp Poland in Knoxville, Tennessee, and returned to St. Paul in September 1898.

An incident among the Ojibwa at Leech Lake brought a company of the 14th to northern Minnesota where it participated in the Battle of Sugar Point, before mustering out in November.
