It's really interesting to see us in action. I'm sure there will be more video popping up in the days to come. It seemed almost everywhere we went we were being filmed. I'd like to see some footage with the colors unfurled and the band striking up. It was amazing how much the music inspired and invigorated the men on our long march, just as it must have in 1862. To bad no one will probably ever see footage of our disembarking off the paddlewheeler in the night.The band was playing "Girl I left Behind", just as was done with the original cast . Guess we'll keep that one for ourselves.
I had the honor of serving as 2nd. Sgt Co. A 15th Iowa
