Best Answer

Wisconsin soldiers fought in almost every major battle of the Civil War including Gainesville, Virginia, Antietam, Maryland, and Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The most famous was the Iron Brigade which had many Wisconsin soldiers.

"The name "Iron Brigade" came from a remark made by Gen. George McClellan when he saw the brigade advancing under a murderous fire. He was told, "It is Gibbon's Wisconsin brigade." "They must be made of iron," McClellan replied, and the name stuck."
