Becoming a member of the Company D, 1st Minnesota is easy. It starts by contacting one of the recruiters listed below and requesting a membership application. This is also a good time to ask any questions you might have about the group. The recruiters are experienced and knowledgeable, and will happily answer any question you might.

Upon receipt of your membership application and dues check you become a probationary member. During you probationary period you are expected to purchase your uniform & equipment and attend 50% of unit activities. Probationary members are given special instruction by the Non Commissioned Officers so that they can function safely and effectively with the rest of the group. In addition the unit has uniforms and equipment to loan out so that new members can participate in all unit activities.

At the end of your probationary period a vote is taken on your elevation to full membership. As a full member you have a vote on all unit business, are eligible to run for an administrative office, or apply to be an officer or NCO. Your membership continues as long as you pay annual membership dues.

Unlike may recreated Civil War units, the First Minnesota has high standards in both drill and equipment. We look forward to your joining us and becoming part of a team that does credit to the memory of the original First Minnesota.
