The First Michigan Engineers

March 23 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Saturday, March 23  |  10:00am – 4:00pm  |  Free

The 1st Michigan Engineers will be discussing the regiment’s role as combat engineers, while displaying the many tools and equipment that would have been used in surveying and construction duties such as cheveaux de fris and transit/level. The living history group will also display items used in combat roles.

The present-day 1st Michigan Engineers and Mechanics, Company E, has been in the Chicago area since 1987.  Over the years, the regiment has participated in combat and engineering roles at reenactments throughout the Midwest and national events at 1st Bull Run, Shiloh, Perryville (KY), and Bentonville (NC).  Some of the items constructed at events include hand drawn field maps, bridges, a 33-foot signal tower, and plank roads.
