Indy Eleven... for the 11th
The Indy Eleven name references Indiana's famed 11th Volunteer Infantry Regiment , which brought together volunteer soldiers from the state during the Civil War. In honor of the 11th Infantry Regiment's original enlistment date of April 25, 1861, Indy Eleven unveiled its team identity, colors and crest on the same date 152 years later during a ceremony held on the steps of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument in downtown Indianapolis.
The 11th Indiana was enlisted in Indianapolis and originally set to serve for 90 days in the summer of 1861, with Lew Wallace as its colonel and George McGinnis as lieutenant colonel. After brief battle action in western Virginia, it returned to Indianapolis to be mustered out as its enlistment had expired. However, the outfit would soon reassemble for a four-year enlistment, and the group eventually known as Wallace's Zouaves would go on to play roles in nine battles, proving vital to the cause of reuniting the nation under the Stars and Stripes.
