About Private Anthony's Place.
Thanks for stopping by. Before you continue, I apologize for any typographical errors that might be found from time to time on this site. I have been building this site since 1999 and sometimes, one finger dose not know what the other is doing at times, hence an error appears and no, after all this, I still don't have the quickest two fingers, this side of the Mississippi and they just haven't learned to think for themselves as yet , so you can see, this is more like a full time on going job than my hobby, but I enjoy it.
Most of us involved with History, just want to get it out where someone might be able to learn from it. This is why I have a site. Reenactments are fun, but it is the history that pushes them along.
In remembering that the men that we as reenactors talk about, from both sides, died for freedom. In their memory then, I feel information about them should be past from person to person to anyone wanting to learn about them for free. My Historical information, is for personal use only. My information is free to anyone wanting to learn from it. Please, keep it that way.
The Site Information
In researching history, at times we will find several different dates or accounts of what might have been. My information is only as reliable as the source that it came from. I am not responsible for the accuracy of any information on any of these pages. This stie is my pesonal site. It is not affiliated with any reenacting units, etc. other than myself.
You will see credited names here and there on the site. They are the ones that make the whole thing
posible for sites like this to work. Although I encourage you to check them out and feel they are all worthy, any dealings or purchases that you have or make, will be soley through them.
My Site is on a Homestead. I don't know if a Homestead Site will work for you. Only you can decide that, so far, it works for me. Without a site like this, I would not have been able to build Private Anthony's Place.
So, with that, I send a Thank You to Homestead and all of it's affiliates for allowing me to build here.
My family for putting up with me and the amount of time I put into my hobby. Gob Bless you guys, I Love you.
The First Minnesota Regiment Volunteer Infantry Inc. , out of Fort Snelling Minnesota, in which I belonged to, for spending all the much needed time in making me a Civil War Soldier. You never met such a great bunch of guys, & gails too.
Thanks to all the many more that help me along my way, And Thank you for coming on in to visit.

Movies that have historical value, My Picks!
Ken Burn's Civil War - Documentary long enough to watch all week.
Tells the story of the Civil War and is very well done.
Gettysburg - Gives a very nice look at the battle of Gettysburg. Althouh the 1st Minnesota is not mentioned in the movie, it gives an idea of what these men went through. In this movie, about the time the 20th Maine is making their charge is about the same time frame of the battle that the 1st Minnesota made theirs in about the center of the line. Great Battle scenes.
God's and Generals - A movie that gives a look at both sides in the was much like Gettysburg. This brings you from the begining of the war up to Gettysburg. There is a lot on General Jackson in this one. Really shows a reflection of who these people were and how they thought.
Glorry - This movie is of the 54th Massachusetts. This follows the 54th colored regiment. The movie follows the men from enlistment through their charge at Fort Wagner.
Ride with the Devil - This movie gives a southern view in Missouri and where poeple fought people and reflects on Jayhawkers and Bushwackers.
Andersonville - This movie is of the prison life of union soldiers.
