Age 24

The 14th Regiment New York State Militia, or 14th Brooklyn, was constituted on May 13, 1847. The 14th Brooklyn received the nickname “The Red Legged Devils” due to their vibrant red trousers. At the time, most Union regiments wore blue. The volunteer militia, led by Colonel Alfred M. Wood, consisted primarily of abolitionists from Brooklyn. They served between the years of 1861 through 1864 and were known for their grit and determination and never stood down from a fight.

Name Meaning

English: occupational name for a maker of wheels (for vehicles or for use in spinning or various other manufacturing processes), from an agent derivative of Middle English whele ‘wheel’. The name is particularly common on the Isle of Wight; on the mainland it is concentrated in the neighboring region of central southern England.
