26th Regiment Connecticut Volunteers

Welcome to the webpage for the Twenty-Sixth Connecticut Volunteer Infantry. This site is dedicated to the soldiers of this regiment whose service included participation in the longest siege in American military history, the siege of Port Hudson, Louisiana. At this site you may read the official history of the regiment written by Captain Gallup of Company F, view images of various members of the regiment, view images of Generals Nathaniel Banks, Neal Dow, Thomas Sherman, and Franklin Gardner, view a map of Port Hudson, and  peruse the entire roster of the regiment, separated according to company. You may also read the entire first issue of the regimental newspaper.

I intend to expand this site as more material is gathered. If you have images or letters you would like to see added here, please let me know. Full credit will be given for any submissions. I have spent many years researching the Twenty-Sixth and would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
