View Full Version : Odin's Rifles: 15th WVI

Hej, all...

A few weekends ago, I was speaking with my girlfriend and her mother, and of course, the conversation turned to the Civil War. They told me about an ancestor who emigrated from Norway in the 1850's and served in the 15th Wisconsin. His name was Halvor O. Brenden, aka "Lucky", because he survived so many wounds.

What they heard is that someone portrays Pvt. Brenden in the 15th WVI. Can anyone help me locate that reenactor? It would be much appreciated..

Also, does the 15th have a website? Thanks again.

Does anyone have an answer? I think there is a unit out there reenacting the 15th WVI, and if you guys are in events close to me, I'd like to join you... But I can't find your site.

All I know is, everytime I think of the name "Odin's Rifles" I imagine it is something that Perry White yells to Clark Kent in the newsroom!

"Odin's RIFLES, Kent!"

I live in Southern Wisconsin and have never heard of a 15th WVI.

Check the website below and have fun exploring. I'm sure they'd like to hear from another descendant of one of Col. Heg's boys.
