The 10th was an exceptionally accomplished regiment, fighting in 23 battles and at least as many harrowing skirmishes, and only once giving back ground that they had taken.
The 10th regiment was part of the successful Union coastal campaign during the early years of the war - a period of time when Union victories were few.
Greenwich's Nicholas Fox was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, the highest battlefield commendation. At the time of his death in 1929, Mr. Fox was one of only 31 Connecticut soldiers to have received this distinction.
Navigating the website
This website contains: (1) photo shows of battlefields where men of the 10th Connecticut fought, (2) my essays about the 10th regiment and Greenwich soldiers and (3) a video clip of the documentary film that I researched and narrated.
The documentary film follows the battle campaigns of Greenwich men who served with Company I of the 10th Connecticut Volunteers. The film also highlights notable Greenwich soldiers in the civil war and the contribution of Connecticut and Greenwich African American soldiers.
