Oregon Civil War Sesquicentennial has spent the last three years educating residents of the Pacific Northwest about the tens of thousands of Civil War veterans who moved out west after the end of the war. These hardy veterans, set down roots, raised families and contributed to the prosperity of the Pacific Northwest. This conference will focus on the service and sacrifices of Scandinavians in the American Civil War.
This conference will bring long-awaited attention to these patriots, some who signed up to fight for their newly adopted country as they were coming down the gangplank of the ships that brought them to America. This conference will also focus on the wartime exploits and life achievements of Colonel Hans Christian Heg, appointed by the governor of Wisconsin to be the commander of famed 15th Wisconsin.
