    What was it like to be a teenage soldier during the Civil War? Charley will tell you about his life growing up in the frontier town of Winona and the tensions leading up to the start of the Civil War in 1861.

    Charley was mustered into Company K of the 1st Minnesota Regiment on April 19, 1861, at the age of 16 years old.  Learn about his experiences on and off the battlefield including discharges, promotions, wounds and death. Charley wrote over eighty letters home that are now on file with the Minnesota Historical Society and they are brought to life through this Minnesota History Player performance.
