Connecticut 1st Volunteer Regiment

Connecticut 1st
Volunteer Regiment had five Wethersfield men enlisted in this 90-day
regiment. At that time most of the people in both the North and South
thought that the war would be very short and 90-day regiments were
common. The regiment was at First
Bull Run
but saw no action. Four of the five men re-enlisted in
other regiments.
