The purpose of this thesis was to trace the role of the Michigan Eleventh Volunteer Infantry in the last eighteen months of its enlistment during the American Civil War. During this period the regiment was engaged at Chickamauga, Missionary Ridge, and in the Atlanta campaign.
An extensive search was made through the existing primary sources. During this search much new information was discovered and used to evaluate the role of this forgotten but gallant regiment.
