The Plummer Brothers in the Civil War

May Meeting of the Litchfield GAR Civil War Roundtable

The Plummer Boys is the story of the Plummer family from Brooklyn Township, Minnesota, who sent five sons to serve the Union Cause in the American Civil War.  Using the stories of the five sons who served and two others that tried, many facts, figures and anecdotes about Minnesota and the Civil War will be shared.

Darryl Sannes has been studying the American Civil War most of his adult life.  He co-authored the three-book set, Patriots of Brooklyn, the stories of the men from Brooklyn Township, who served in the war.  From 2011 to 2015, Sannes served on the Minnesota Civil War Commemoration Task Force and was most recently the president of the Twin Cities Civil War Round Table.  In the summer of 2019, Darryl and his wife, Diane, made their eleventh trip to Gettysburg.
