11th Minnesota Infantry      
Company A
Ernst Frederick BLASE - Private   
Ernst F. Blase was born in Germany in 1841 and emigrated to the United States about 1853. He fought in the Indian uprising battle of Birch Coulie in southwestern Minnesota in September of 1862. The soldiers in his unit suffered the most casualties of all the Indian war battles.
Ernst lived in Minnesota six years before the Civil War, working on the Blase family farm in Dakota County attending school as frequently as possible. In 1860, the young hazel-eyed, five-foot seven inch young man lived in St. Paul with the Alfred Davidson family. He was employed there as a carpenter’s apprentice.
With the contentious 1850s slavery debate before the Civil war and the fall of Fort Sumter, Ernst soon felt compelled to serve in the Civil War and enlisted on August 9th, 1862. He was assigned to Company A of the Sixth Minnesota Infantry Volunteers. The unit was promised that they would be “moved to the seat of war” in the East as soon as the regiment was full.
However, on August 19th, while Ernst was serving guard post duty at Ft. Snelling, Governor Ramsey was alerted about the Sioux Indian uprisings in south western Minnesota; immediately he went to Ft. Snelling to activate and dispatch military units to the area. Soldiers of this regiment soon learned that their hopes of moving East to see finally “the elephant” was not going to happen any time soon.
Enroute to the embattled area, twenty-one year old Private Ernst F. Blase found himself with a Springfield rifle in hand and in the company of Regimental Commander William R. Crooks, several regimental companies of men, and Colonel Henry H. Sibley, of Mendota. Their mission was to bury the victims of the Indian uprising near New Ulm, Minnesota but soon they found themselves in the middle of the ensuing Indian uprising.
The day after they arrived, Indians surrounded the camp during the night and they attacked early in the morning. During the battle, Ernst felt a huge blow to his head but thought someone nearby had struck him with the butt of his rifle. He continued fighting with a severe headache. Later, while talking to a buddy, he tipped up his hat. His alarmed buddy screamed, “Blase, you’re wounded!” A “22 caliber rifle ball had struck him in the right forehead, just above the visor of his soldier’s cap” and blood streamed down his face.
Ernst’s wound was severe. A spent bullet was the culprit but it had not penetrated his skull. Luckily, it had lodged into the boney part of his forehead inside the outer skull. Soon relief soldiers rescued the debilitated soldiers and tended to the sick.
Ernst and ordered
The Indian battles continued for weeks in southwestern Minnesota, but for Ernst it was over. He now faced a personal medical battle. Ernst’s doctor ordered him sent back to Ft. Snelling, Minnesota and was ordered to ride in the spring cushioned sick wagon. At Ft. Snelling, without the help of anesthetic, the doctor trephined his wound. With the help of several men to hold Ernst still, the surgeon removed the bullet by taking a surgical core from his skull.
Ernst spent the next couple of months recovering and but his medical evaluation report cited that he was only at one-fourth of his soldiering functionality. He was honorably discharged from the U.S. Army on December 9, 1862.
Wounded and as incapacitated as he was, Ernst re-enlisted in the U.S.Army two years later on 14 July 1864. He was assigned to Troop I of the 5th United States Cavalry Unit under the command of General Sheridan, enlisting under the assumed name of Frederick C. Davis because he thought that if the authorities new of his previous wound, he would not be able to serve.
During this portion of his Army service, he participated in Sherman’s March to the Sea, and was present at the signing of the surrender at Appomattox Courthouse in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.
After the war, Ernst participated in the Grand Review parade in Washington, DC, visited family in St. Louis, then returned home to Minnesota where he again took up the carpentry trade with his brother Gerhardt Blase and be near his other broth John H. Blase.
Ernst F. Blase died March 17, 1922 in North St. Paul, Ramsey County, Minnesota. He had been married twice, first to Sophia Neipolt and had sons Wesley C. and John Frederick Blase. His second marriage was to Margaret C. Bach. That marriage produced Isabelle, Amelia M., Annetta L., Arthur A. and Roland R. Blase.

************************************************************************** *********************

Family Legend:
She emmigrated 6 mos. after the death of her husband''s death with two of her sons Frederick and Ernst. They were going to meet up with her older children John Henry, Gerhardt Heinrich, and Dau. Clara in or around St. Louis. She took her two youngest sons to the Port of Bremerhaven. She and son Fred contacted Cholera and died at the port and were buried at sea.

One family legend account says that she and Fred died before leaving the harbor. Another says that she died while aboard the vessel. If they were indeed buried at sea, they may have contacted the disease at Port but probably died at sea. Perhaps Ernst continued alone on the journey because she died at sea else it is possible to consider that he might have stayed in Germany and lived with allied family members. Nevertheless, Ernst completed the journey by himself and entered the United States alone.

Ernst''s family belongings and the money he now carried after his mother''s demise were all he had. While enroute to the United States on a 15 week journey, a man who Ernst entrusted with his personal belongings, gambled and squandered it away. The man claimed to be a friend of the family. Alone and now destitute, Ernst landed at the Port of New Orleans abt. February 1853 (51?) and finally made his way up the Mississippi on a Steamboat to meet with his older brothers and sister in St. Louis, Missouri.

Ernst''s son Roland Blase (''Jumbo'') said that Ernst lived with his brother John Henry Blase and his new wife. (This would be after May 1853 if true)

ORGANIZATIONS he belonged to:
Member of Acker Post of the G.A.R. of St. Paul. (Grand Army of the Republic)
member of the A.O.U.W.
Member of Methodist Episcopal Church (Obituary)

Newspaper article dated 30 Mar. 1963, ''Family Grows Old Gracefully'':

...Ernst Blase, the father, is a story by himself - a Civil War soldier who enlisted under an assumed name and witnessed Lee''s surrender at Appomattox; a veteran of the Sioux uprising who on his forehead carried with pride the bullet hole left from his wound at Birch Coulee; a successful farmer-contractor who could look back with satisfaction on what he did with his life after coming to America from Germany as a boy of 12, orphaned when both his parents died on the boat crossing the Atlantic.''

Cousin John said that Ernst built Water tanks for the steam railroad. Then he built these on up the Rail line through the Dakotas, and Montana etc.

Andrew Thompson - Unknown   
Andrew (Jnr), a son of Andrew & Ann Thompson (Nee McCormick) originally from Ireland was working in St Paul in August 1862 when news reached the town of the awful atrocities being committed by the Sioux Indians who had gone on the warpath. At this time the American Civil War was in progress and at Fort Snelling, the 6th Minnesota Infantry was being formed and Andrew enlisted in Company “G”. On reporting to his regiment he asked for, and was granted, a few days leave to go and visit his family and on reaching the town of Shadopee, he met numerous people fleeing from the Indians. He advised the men to go back to their farms, but they refused. He purchased some gun powder, knowing his father had several weapons, but when he reached his home he was surprised to find they had all fled, taking their guns with them. He found a pitch fork, the only defensive weapon available and retired to an upstairs room. The next day it was raining, so he remained in the house all day, living on a custard pie and boiled potatoes that the family had left behind. He was joined that evening by his brothers John and Thomas, returning from Belle Plains, with a party of ten others. They prepared themselves to meet the Indians who were reported to be massacring the whites in the neighbourhood. Their father, mother and the balance of the family had fled into St Paul.

Andrew returned safely to Fort Snelling to be told his regiment was at Fort Ridgley, so he asked for transport but as there was none available he was compelled to walk the entire distance through the wilderness that was harbouring hostile Indians. He rejoined his Company and remained with them until May 1863. At the close of the war in 1865, he was mustered out and discharged in July of that year. He returned to his father’s house and lived there with his brother Thomas until 1880 when they sold the property and moved to the town of Collins in McLeod County. His mother had died whilst he was on active service in 1863 and his father in 1870. Andrew died in February, 1911.
