With the exception of less than half a dozen, all of the above were residents of Minnesota, fifty-four being from St. Paul, eight from Winona, and the remainder from other parts of the state. Twenty-four of the members had been soldiers previously, many of them having seen active service - seventeen in European armies, one in the United States regulars, and six in the United States volunteer forces. Wolf - then a boy of sixteen - enlisted in Bulow's Army Corps, fought at Quatre Blas, and was present at the battle of Waterloo.
