A Sargent from the 5th Minnesota

Meet Sgt. Daniel Dills (aka Gene)

Sgt Dills joined the Union army with this son and brother during the winter of 1862.  When he joined, he was 44 yrs old.  And, his brother was 43.  Daniel left his wife with four remaining children (ages 2-15) to run the farm.   

Except for that scratch, all three returned home safely after the war.

My sincere thanks, Sgt Dills!
