 History of the Minnesota Fourth Regimental Brass Band. 

The band had three different sets of instruments. It was composed of enlisted men detailed from the different companies of the regiment. It was brigade band, First Brigade, Third Division, for nine months, was in all engagements with the regiment and in many instances with guns in ranks, etc. Our band was the one that led in the grand review in Washington, before President Johnson, Generals Grant, Sherman and other dignitaries. And it was one of only a few which kept its organization from the time of going out until returning to the state. It received special mention from Generals Logan and Sherman for gallant service performed at Allatoona.
