Thirteen troops of the Divisions of Illinois and Wisconsin were all that remained of a patrol searching for the perpetrators of continued attacks on the settlement of Winnebago, Illinois. Facing extremely long odds, the brave troopers of this command were trapped behind enemy lines, low on ammunition and supplies, and desperately needing to return to Fort Sackett. Fortunately all thirteen were skilled marksmen and snipers.
The body count after the battle was 845 enemy combatants killed by gunfire, thirteen killed by saber, and thirteen killed by bayonet. The patrol only suffered one wounded (played convincingly by a dummy) and through the brave efforts of all thirteen members of the patrol he was able to return to the fort. He is recuperated enough to complain about his handling by certain members of the patrol.
Hardtack privately supplied by Captain Wyatt sustained the patrol during the fight. Several troopers stated that motivation to get back to the fort was the noon mess prepared by Mess Sgt. Mrs. Shamrock and assisted by Mess Cpl. Shamrock Kid Two.

Massively enjoyable is an understatement!
It's not being fast .... it's being willing, and most men aren't willing.......
