"The Governor of Indiana, on behalf of the State, tenders this tribute of thanks to Lt. Col. Von Trebra and the companies of the 1st German, 32d Regiment Indiana, Volunteers, who so gallantly defended themselves and repulsed the enemy at Rowlett's Station, ..."
The December 1861 battle fought near Rowlett's Station provided a victory for Northern Arms on the fields of Kentucky at a time when the Union suffered embarrassing losses and setbacks on other fronts. This brief and bloody engagement also marked the beginning of the distinguished military career of Indiana's 1st German Infantry Regiment.
