Illinois Staats-Zeitung -- January 12, 1871[A Militia Regiment to Be Organized]
Meeting in Denmark Hall (Milwaukee Avenue) of Germans and Norwegians respecting a militia regiment to be created in Chicago. The State will pay only $12.50 for each uniform. Two committees formed to collect money for more handsome uniforms. The Germans want an exact copy of a Russian uniform for their Company, and Consul Claussenius has already written to the Russian ministry of War for a complete sample.
Herr Ostermann announces a "beneficium" for the "Prussian uniform"-the Turnhalle Vorwarts.
