       The Fourth Michigan Infantry found it's name in print several times during the War Between the States. In fact, there are several articles from various periodicals that have become available, and it is our intention to post them on this page for historical and scholastic review. They will be posted here on a revolving basis, so visit us often. Please remember that these articles, like everything else on this website, are not to be reproduced without the consent from myself, George Wilkinson, and the individuals that have graciously submitted them for us to share. Please contact us at if you have a request or have something that you wish to shar




       Our first article concerns Capt. De Goyer's capture during the battle of "1st Bull Run" and his escape from a Confederate prison after the battle.Based on his description of the Confederate prison, it likely that he escaped from Libby Prison in Richmond Virginia.
