In the winter of 1860-1861 he went south to what is now Mississippi about 20 miles south of Vicksburg and worked at cutting cord wood for the use of river boats. Of course politics both north and south were at a fever heat and threats of secession were loud. Mr. Niemann, having received a good education in his native country, wa able to read and judge for himself between right and wrong in the matter. In February of 1861 his employer asked him if, in the case the South seceded, he would not fight for the South, to which he gave an elusive reply, himself watching the events as closely as his employer. A short time after he saw the crisis must come, he quietly took a boat north and landed in Davenport, Iowa. When he learned of President Lincoln's call for 75,000 troops, he enlisted. April 1861 he was mustered into the 1st Regiment for three months and was sent into Missouri and was hastening to the battle of Springfield, MO when General Lyon was killed, but arrived too late to get into action.
