I'm looking for information on Henry Hoehn (aka Heinrich Hoen or variations thereof), born in Germany about 1834, emigrated to Carver County about 1860, and was in the Civil War. Want info on when he served, his unit, or whatever.

Try Minnesota 1st Heavy Artillery Regiment 1865. My ancestor from Carver county joined them. Do a search for his name in the civil war at the National Archives.

John, my ggrandfather, Henry Lukan was also in the Minn. 1st Heavy Artillery Regiment. Have you been able to find any info on the Regiment? All I have found is they had garrison duty in Tenn.

John, David,
It seems I also have an ancestor who was in the Minnesota 1st Heavy Artillery. He was from Benton Township- Carver County
I have just received his record from the National Archives.
It seems they mustered in St. Paul in Sept. 1864 time frame and it is correct that they had garrison duty in Chattanooga, Tenn. and of course mustered out at the end of the war (Jun. 1865). There is not much else in the way of info from the records. My ancestor was in Co. A...

The following information came from a Google search:

The 1st Minnesota Heavy Artillery mustered in at St. Paul, and Rochester, Minnesota, between November 1864 and February 1865. Many of the officers were recruited from discharged veteran sergeants of the 1st Minnesota Volunteer Infantry Regiment and corporals from the 3rd Minnesota Volunteer Infantry Regiment, 4th Minnesota Volunteer Infantry Regiment, and 5th Minnesota Volunteer Infantry Regiment. The regiment was assigned as part of the garrison of Chattanooga, Tennessee, for its entire career and saw no combat action. The 1st Minnesota "Heavies" were mustered out of service on September 27, 1865.

The last surviving veteran of the American Civil War from either side, Albert Woolson, was a member of the regiment.
