Post in the State and one set to each Camp of Spanish war veterans. The foregoing 
sets shall be distributed free ; all other sets and volumes shall be sold by the Adju- 
tant General at actual cost, to be determined by the Executive Council, and the pro- 
ceeds paid into the State treasury. An itemized account shall be kept and vouchers

to pay expenses provided for in this act. 

Section 4. This act being deemed of immediate importance shall take effect and 
be in force from and after its publication in the Register and Leader and the Des 
Moines Capital, daily newspapers published in the City of Des Moines, Polk County, 
Iowa. 

Approved April 10, A. D. 1907. 

In compliance with the requirement contained in section 1 of the act, 
Col. Geo. W. Crosley was selected as the Civil War soldier member of the 
board, which was then constituted as follows: Albert B. Cummins, Gov- 
ernor; H. W. Byers, Attorney General; W. H. Thrift, Adjutant General; 
Charles Aldrich, Curator of the Historical Department, and Col. Geo. 
W. Crosley. 

On the 25th day of May, 1907, the board met in the office of the 
Governor, and organized by electing Governor Albert B. Cummins, chair- 
man, and Col. Geo. W. Crosley, secretary. The secretary was instructed to 
supervise the work of compilation — under the direction of the Adjutant 
General — and these two members were requested to formulate plans for the 
work and, when such plans were completed, to submit same for the con- 
sideration of the board. It was declared to be the earnest purpose of the 
board to have the work prosecuted with energy, and, with this purpose in 
view, the preliminary work of investigation was promptly begun. 

On June oth, the general plan of the work was submitted, and adopted 
by the board. With some modifications and changes, the plan has been car- 
ried out as shown in these volumes. 

It has been a difficult task to condense the history of the different 
organizations into what could be fairly considered "a brief historical 
sketch." as prescribed in the act. History has never dealt, and perhaps 
never will be able to deal, in the most satisfactory manner, with all those 
whose achievements go to make up history, even where there are no lim- 
itations as to time and space. In the preparation of these sketches, the 
compiler has confined himself exclusively to the facts as shown by the 
military records, and to his own personal knowledge of the conditions that 
pertained to the common experience of the volunteer soldiers of the War of 
the Rebellion, a knowledge gained by experience as a soldier in active serv- 
ice from the commencement to the close of that war. He could at best 
point out only the most conspicuous figures and events as contained in the 
official reports. Only a few of the names of the gallant officers and men 
whose acts of bravery entitled them to special mention are contained In 
these reports. In the long period of service which the greater number of 
these Iowa organizations rendered, they were engaged in so many im- 
portant expeditions, campaigns and battles, that but few could be described 



INTRODUCTION 



in detail, and none with that particularity of detail which would do them 
full justice. The brief paragraph opposite the name of each soldier, which 
follows the history of the organization to which he belonged, is also com- 
piled from the official records. It shows only the leading features of his 
service. It does not and can not be made to show in detail the service he 
performed, or what he endured and suffered, and, notwithstanding the 
careful research of the official records, there will no doubt be some few 
cases in which even this brief paragraph will be found, either in part or 
as a whole, incorrect. In all such cases, the injustice to the soldier is 
due to the official records, and not to carelessness or neglect on the part 
of those who prepared these revised rosters. General N. B. Baker, who 
was the Adjutant General of Iowa during, and for a number of years after, 
the War of the Rebellion, and who was a man of great ability, had the 
wisdom and foresight to require of the Iowa officers copies of their official 
reports and returns for preservation in his office, in order that the military 
record of each organization might be preserved for all time. For this 
purpose blanks were prepared and sent to the commanding officers of Iowa 
regiments in the field, upon which to make copies of all their reports and 
returns. To add emphasis to this requirement, and as an evidence of appre- 
ciiation of the importance of compliance with it, the Tenth General Assembly 
of the State of Iowa adopted the following concurrent resolution: 

Resolved, by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring, tliat the 
C^olonels of Iowa regiments engaged in tlie service of their country, be respectfully 
requested to furnish tlie Adjutant General of tlie State, at their earliest convenience, 
witli a brief history of tlieir respective regiments, sliowing what they have accom- 
plished and endured, not only on tlie battlefield, but upon the marcli and in camp, with 
a view that the information thus obtained may hereafter be embodied into a perma- 
nent history and monument of the patriotism, the heroism, and achievements of the 
soldiers of Iowa. 

Resolved, that the Adjutant General be requested to communicate the above reso- 
lution to the Colonels of all Iowa regiments. 

JACOB BUTLER. 
Spealier of the House of Representatives. 
ENOCH ■W. EASTMAN, 

President of the Senate. 
Approved February 23, 1864. 

WILLIAM M. STONE, 
' Governor. 

There seems to have been a general disposition to comply with these 
re(^uests, but, in the exigencies of war, some of these reports and returns 
were lost in transmission, some were captured by the enemy, and, at the 
close of the war, the records of the office of the Adjutant General were 
still, in many respects, in a very incomplete and unsatisfactory condition. 
General Baker made every effort to remedy these defects by appealing to 
the officers, who had returned to their homes, to supply the information 
that would enable him to complete the records. The information thus ob- 
tained was not complete, because of the fact that it was mostly given from 
nlemory. A part of these incomplete records have been corrected by in- 
formation obtained from the War Department In Washington and from

surviving Iowa soldiers. It is greatly to be regretted that this -work .of 
revision was not undertaken at an earlier date, when a larger number of 
the surviving soldiers of the war were still living. After the lapse of 
nearly half a century, it is difficult for most men to remember with accuracy 
events that did not make the most lasting impression upon their minds. 
They can remember the most important events distinctly, but, when it comes 
to recalling the personal record of comrades in their company or regiment, 
it is only of those with whom their relations were most intimate that they 
can give positive information. There was now and then a soldier who kept 
a daily diary in which he recorded the principal events that occurred during 
his term of service. The compiler has personal knowledge of only one 
such private record that covered a period of three years' continuous service 
in the field. Could all the records of this kind which have been preserved 
have been collected, they would no doubt have been of great value in , com- 
piling a work of this character. 

The errors and omissions which may occur in these revised rosters must 
therefore be accounted for by the causes before mentioned. In many instances 
the only record obtainable is the name, age, date of enlistment, residence, 
date of muster into the service of the United States, and the date of dis- 
charge or muster out of the soldier. In such cases, particularly where the 
soldier served for the full term of his regiment and was mustered out with 
it, the inference is that his history is identical with that of his regiment. 
Ke may have participated in every battle in which his regiment was engaged, 
but, as only the names of those who were killed, wounded, captured, or miss- 
ing in action, or those who were favored by special mention, appear in the. 
official reports, his name would not appear as a participant. The men who had 
the good fortune to go through their entire term of service without sus- 
taining any serious injury, and who were also so fortunate as to have escaped 
being the victim of some form of sickness, have no record — as a rule — except 
that of continuous service; but such a record is remarkable, and certainly 
most commendable. 

Col. George H. Turner, who compiled the record of service of Michigan 
Volunteers in the War of the Rebellion, in his introductory refers to the class 
of soldiers above alluded to, and also to those reported as missing in action, 
in the following forceful and truthful statement: 

It scarcely occurred to the officers who made their official returns to the differ- 
ent departments that forty years after the conflict an individual history of each soldier 
who participated would be written. * * * The hardships of a campaign, the duties 
exacted night and day, the constant attention to matters of vital importance, are not 
conducive to literary efforts of biography or general history. It is pathetic to know 
that thousands upon thousands of Union soldiers who participated In many of the most 
desperate battles of the Civil "War have no records of such battles to their credit in 
the official reports. A limited number were fortunate enough to have their names 
recorded by their officers as participating in such engagements. 

It was sometimes impossible in the stirring times of war for commanding officers 
to give authentic and final history of men who disappeared in a great battle, as in 
many cases the bodies of the dead could not be found, and if possession of the field 
was yielded to the enemy, the fate of those who were made prisoners of war could 
only, if ever, be learned through unreliable Confederate sources. 



INTRODUCTION 



For such heroes who died for their country and who sleep in nameless graves, 
their epitaph is inscribed in this history as "missing in action." A more honorable 
or heroic epitaph could not be penned. 

It will thus be seen that the same difficulties encountered in the com- 
pilation of this work existed elsewhere. In fact, the same conditions pre- 
vailed in all the states, and it may be safely assumed that the record of 
personal service of Iowa soldiers recorded in these volumes is as nearly 
correct and complete as that published by any other state. The total enroll- 
ment, together with the Summary of Casualties which follows the Historical 
Sketch of each regiment, has been carefully compiled from the records, and 
demonstrates more clearly than language could describe the tremendous sacrifice 
of life, and the untold suffering endured by these brave 3ons of Iowa. The State 
has honored itself in thus endeavoring to do justice to their memory. 



Volumes I. and II. of this work, containing the historical sketches and 
revised rosters of the First to the Sixteenth Regiments of Infantry, inclusive, 
had been published prior to the commencement of the session of the Thirty- 
third General Assembly, which made provision for the continuation and com- 
pletion of the compilation, by the adoption of the following Act: 

CHAPTER 248. 

ROSTER OF IOWA SOLDIERS, SAILORS AND MARINES. 

H. F. 171. 

An Act providing for the completion and distribution of the roster of Iowa soldiers, 
sailors and marines as provided by chapter two hundred twenty-three (223), 
laws of the Thirty-second General Assembly, fixing number of volumes, and mak- 
ing an additional appropriation therefor. 

Be it Enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Iowa: 

Section 1. Appropriation — how drawn. That the sum of ten thousand ($10,- 
000.00) dollars or so much thereof as may be necessary, is hereby appropriated from 
any moneys, not otherwise appropriated, in the treasury of the State, for the employ- 
ment of the extra help and other necessary expense to complete the compilation of the 
roster and record of Iowa soldiers, sailors and marines provided by chapter two hun- 
dred twenty-three (223), laws of the Thirty-second General Assembly, and the same 
shall be drawn and expended as provided for in section three (3) of said chapter. 

Section 2. Number printed and bound — distribution. The edition of each volume 
hereafter printed shall be three thousand, instead of ten thousand, as provided by said 
chapter. Two thousand of each edition shall be bound in half sheep and the remainder 
shall be stitched and stored for future use and so bound whenever required for sale 
or distribution. One hundred sets of said rosters and record shall be placed in the 
hands of the Adjutant General and one hundred sets in the State library, for exchange 
with libraries of other states, the War Department Library, and the Librarian of Con-

First Regiment 

Iowa Volunteer Cavalry 



HISTORICAL SKETCH 
FIRST REGIMENT IOWA VOLUNTEER CAVALRY 



The ofncial records in the office of the Adjutant General of the State of 
Iowa show the original rosters of the twelve companies which composed the 
First Regiment of Cavalry, at the date of their muster into the service of the 
United States, together with the additional enlistments in each company, which 
follov.ed soon after the completion of the muster of the regiment. The regiment 
was organized under the proclamation of President Lincoln, bearing date May 
3, 1861. Burlington was designated as the general rendezvous, and the com- 
panies were ordered into quarters at that place, by Governor Kirkwood, July 
18, 1861, with the exception of Company M, which was ordered into quarters at 
Davenport, September 2, 1861, and was there mustered into the service Sep- 
tember 12, 1861, and was shortly afterwards ordered to join the other companies 
at Burlington. Companies A to I, inclusive, were mustered by Captain Alex- 
ander Chambers, of the United States Army, at Burlington, on the 30th and 
31st days of July, 1861. who also mustered Companies K and L, at Burlington, 
August 17, 1861, and Company I\I, at Davenport, September 12, 1861. The 
total number of the regiment — rank and file — at muster in was 1,035, and this 
number was soon increased, by additional enlistments, to 1,24.5.^ The regiment 
had the honor of being the first volunteer cavalry organization, which had 
enlisted for a three years' term of service, to be accepted by the Government. 
The personnel of the regiment was of the highest character, both as to enlisted 
men and officers. Among its commissioned officers were some of the ablest men 
in the State. Its first commander, Colonel Fitz Henry Warren, was one of the 
most noted journalists of his time. He had become the Associate Editor of the 
New York Tribune, and his earnest advocacy of the cause of the Union, and 
his insistence upon an active and vigorous prosecution of the war had been 
effectual in arousing the patriotism of loyal citizens, and causing them to 
realize the magnitude of the rebellion, and the tremendous task of subduing 
it, which confronted the Government. 

The officers and men of the regiment preferred to select and own their 
horses, many of which they had brought with them from their homes. The 
law at that time permitted this personal ownership, the Government allowing 
ample pay for the use and risk of the animals. The regiment was thus able 
to secure a better average quality and value of horses than those usually sup- 
plied to the cavalry regimeiats of the Regular Army. 

The short time the regiment was allowed to remain in its first camp, 
near Burlington, was utilized to the utmost extent in learning the rudiments of 
the cavalry drill and the general character of the duties of officers and en- 
listed men in camp and field. The time was too short, however, to properly fit

them for the arduous work of an active campaign against the enemy, in which 
the greater part of the regiment was very soon to engage. In fact, no amount 
of previous training could have fitted them for the peculiar character of the 
service they were called upon to perform during the first year of their term. 
They had to learn, hy practical experience in the field, the character an<i 
methods of the enemy with whom they were contending, and, as will be seen 
they passed through a hard and most difficult school of experience, which in- 
volved vastly more than is taught in the regular military curriculum. 

On the 30th day of September, 1861, six companies of the regiment em- 
barked on steamers and barges and were conveyed to St. Louis, where they 
arrived October 2d, and went into quarters at Benton Barracks, where troop 
were constantly arriving and departing for the field. Here they were joined 
by four companies, two days later. Companies L and M were detained in camp 
at Burlington, waiting to receive their uniforms and horse equipments, and 
did not arrive at Benton Barracks until October 17th. The Government was 
not at that time, and for a long time later, able to procure the arms necessary 
to fully equip all the cavalry regiments. Revolvers and sabers were the arms 
with which the regiment was first equipped. With such arms it was necessary 
to engage the enemy at close quarters, in order to secure effectual results. The 
carbine was an important part of a cavalry soldier's armament, particularly 
when fighting dismounted, as he was more or less frequently required to do 
when engaged against an infantry or dismounted cavalry enemy. The cavalry 
soldiers not provided with carbines were, therefore, placed at a disadvantage, 
except when fighting at very close range or engaged in a hand to hand con- 
flict, when the saber and revolver were the most effective weapons. 

The State of Missouri was rent and torn by the terrible factional strife 
between those of her citizens who adhered to the cause of the Union and those 
who had espoused the cause of the Rebellion. Armed conflicts were of fre- 
quent occurrence, and the number of those who had cast their lot with the 
rebel cause had increased to such proportions as to tax to the utmost the 
available resources of the Government, in its endeavors to protect the loyal 
citizens, who were subjected to pillage and murder at the hands of lawless 
bands, often composed of those who had been their friends and neighbors pre- 
vious to the breaking out of fratricidal war. These rebel bands, being mostly 
well mounted and familiar with the country, could only be successfully pur- 
sued by cavalry. Into this difficult and dangerous field of service came the 
First Iowa Cavalry, to learn its first lessons in the dreadful trade of war. The 
conditions which then confronted the regiment were largely the same during 
the greater part of its long term of service and have been well described by one 
of its members, who subsequently achieved fame and distinction in civil life,^ 
and whom the compiler of this sketch takes the liberty of quoting, as follows: 

The early October days found us in Missouri, and thenceforth we were assigned 
to duties such as none could have well performed save only the highest in the soldierly 
and patriotic qualities of patience, fortitude, unflinching courage, and supreme devotion 
to a cause. Every hardship known to war fell to our lot. The somber picture we 
dallj- faced was for years unlit by a single gleam of those glories which, in regular 
warfare, light up the soldier's pathway to glory or the grave. Our battlefields were 
in the byways and waste places, where the human foxes we followed had their holes. 
Our marches were often in the night time, for from every hilltop, and sometimes from 
the tree tops, looked out a watcher to note our progress and fix the ambush. And 
though compelled to this duty, we were left without proper arms, and for two-thirds

mander-in-Chief, Grand Army of the Republic.

of our term of enlistment were not so well armed for the business we were engaged 
in as were the enemies we followed. But our duty was performed without repining, and 
I believe that if the history of our whole service could be written up with that minute- 
ness with which Kinglake has told the story of the Crimean campaign, that it would 
appear that for Individual daring, for extent of country covered and protected, for 
extent of marches, for number of conflicts, and for soldierly endurance and self denial, 
no regiment in the service excelled that to which we belonged, or deserved better of 
its country. i 

The compiler of this historical sketch finds it impossible to go into particu- 
larity of details without exceeding the limitation of space allowed him in this 
work, and he will, therefore, confine himself to a brief description of the princi- 
pal events in the history of the regiment. 

On the 18th of October, 1861, the First Battalion of the regiment, con- 
sisting of Companies A, B, F and G, under command of Captain Leflangwell, 
left Benton Barracks under orders to report to General Pope. The battalion 
joined the troops under General Pope's command and was assigned to the 
duty of advance guard and scouts, on the march to Springfield. On the 9th 
of November the Union forces evacuated Springfield, and that portion of the 
State was, for a time, left in the possession of the rebel army under General 
Price. Captain LeflBngwell was ordered to proceed to Otterville with his de- 
tachment. In the meantime, the Second Battalion had been ordered to take the 
field, and shared, with the First, the hardships of the winter campaign; while 
the Third Battalion, under Colonel Warren, remained on duty at Benton Bar- 
racks until March 6, 1862, at which time he was ordered to Sedalia, Mo., where 
he arrived, with the Third Battalion, on March 9th. From that date the en- 
tire regiment was engaged in active operations, by companies and detachments, 
operating from different points and covering a wide extent of territory. 

The first engagement in which any portion of the regiment participated 
was fought on the 19th day of December, 1861, on Black River, near the town 
of Milford, Mo., by a detachment of the First Iowa Cavalry, under command of 
Major Torrence, a detachment of the Fourth United States Cavalry, and a sec- 
tion of artillery belonging to a Missouri battery. This force attacked a camp 
of recruits, who were on their way to join the rebel army under General Price. 
In his official report to General Halleck, General Pope gives a detailed account 
of this engagement," from which the following extracts are taken: 

. . . Colonel Davis marched promptly and vigorously with the forces under his 
command, and at a late hour in the afternoon came upon the enemy, encamped in the 
wooded bottom land on the west side of Blackwater opposite the mouth of Clear 
Creek. His pickets were immediately driven in across the stream, which was deep, 
miry, and impassable, except by a long narrow bridge which the enemy occupied in 
force. . . . Colonel Davis brought forward his force, and directed that the bridge 
be carried by assault. The two companies of the Fourth Regular Cavalry being in 
advance, under the command respectively of Lieutenant Gordon and Lieutenant Amory, 
were designated for that service, and were supported by the five companies of the 
First Iowa. Lieutenant Gordon of the Fourth Cavalry led the charge in person with 
the utmost gallantry and vigor, carried the bridge in fine style, and immediately formed 
his company on the opposite side. He was promptly followed by the other companies. 
The force of the enemy posted on the bridge retreated precipitately over a narrow 
open space in the woods, where his whole force was posted. . . . Our forces still 
continuing to press forward, and the enemy finding his retreat south and west cut off, 
and that he was in presence of a large force, and at best could only prolong the con- 
test a short time, surrendered at discretion. His force, reported by the Colonel com- 
manding, consisted of parts of two regiments of Infantry and three companies of 
Cavalry, numbering in all 1,300 men. . . . About 500 horses and mules, 73 wagons

heavily loaded with powder, lead, tents, subsistence stores, and supplies of various 
kinds fell into our hands, as also 1,000 stand of arms. ... The numbers as stated 
were 'reported to me by Colonel Robinson, Colonel J. C. Davis, and by Major Torrence, 
First Iowa Cavalry. . . . Within five days the infantry forces comprising this ex- 
pedition have marched 100 miles, the cavalry more than double that distance; have 
swept the whole country of the enemy west of Sedalia and as far as Rose Hill to a 
line within 15 miles of the Osage; have captured nearly 1,500 prisoners. 1,200 stand 
of arms, nearly 100 wagons, and a large quantity of supplies. The march alone would 
do credit to old soldiers, and it gives me pleasure to state that it has been performed 
with cheerfulness and alacrity. ... A list of our killed and wounded will ho 
transmitted as soon as possible. . . . 

It will thus be seen that very important results were obtained from the 
expedition and engagement, in which the First Iowa Cavalry bore a very 
conspicuous part. 

The next engagement— known as the "Battle of Silver Creek" — was parti- 
cipated in by four companies of the First Iowa Cavalry, associated with de- 
tachments from the First Missouri and "Merrill's Horse" and the Fourth In- 
dependent Company Ohio Volunteer Cavalry, (commanded by Captain John S. 
Foster,) all under command of Major Torrence, of the First Iowa. The follow- 
ing brief extracts from the official report of Major Torrence will serve to show 
the efficient service rendered by the detachment of the First Iowa: 

Fayette, Howard County, Mo., Jan. 11, 1862. 
. . . . By order of General Pope we proceeded from Otterville to this county, 
for the purpose of dispersing sundry rebel camps which were being formed in the 
vicinity, and arrived here Sunday, Jan. 5, 1862. On the morning of the 8th five 
companies of the Fifth Iowa Infantry arrived from Boonville, and, leaving tliem 
to guard our camp here, the command was on the march at 8 o'clock. "\Vr ar- 
rived near the location of their camp, which was situated on or near the 1 ^ 1- 
waters of Silver Creek, . . . about 4 P. M., and made the attack at half past I'uir 
P. M. The enemy were protected by dense woods and underbrush and there was i 
approach to them save through a narrow road, only wide enough for two men to rid 
abreast. Our troops were ordered to dismount, every fifth man holding horses, and w> 
prepared to fight on foot. The engagement commenced at once. . . . The en em;, 
faltered, gave back, retreated in disorder, and we soon had possession of their camp. 

The report further states that the pursuit was soon abandoned and the 
troops returned to the rebel camp, which was destroyed, there being no trans- 
portation for the captured property. It was found impossible to overtake thr 
rebels, they being well mounted and familiar with the roads and by-ways of tli> 
wooded country in which they made their camps. In this engagement th.' 
command lost 27 men, killed and wounded. The loss of the enemy could not 
be definitely learned, but was supposed to be about 60 in killed and wounded. 
James Convey, of the First Iowa, was mortally v.ounded and died the next day. 
The others belonging to the regiment, who were wounded, were James Scott, 
Thomas Fletcher, Stephen M. Sexton, Cornelius Thompson and Andrew Johnson. 

During the remainder of the winter the companies of the First and Second 
Battalions of the regiment were almost constantly on the move. They dis- 
persed many rebel bands, and made it a difficult matter for recruits to get 
through to the rebel army, except those who went in small squads or singly, 
and kept off the main roads. Among the important captures was that of Briga- 
dier General Tom Price, son of Major General Price, the commander of the 
rebel army. Many horses, mules, wagons and other property useful and neces- 
sary to the enemy were captured or destroyed. But the men who supported the 
rebel cause were of such desperate and stubborn nature that no disaster 



FIRST CAVALRY 



seemed sufficient to discourage or conquer their resolute spirits, and they con- 
tinued their efforts to regain control of the State, even believing that they 
• might eventually reverse conditions and transfer the theater of war to the 
North. It became evident that the struggle was to be prolonged, and that all 
the resources at the command of the Government would be required to fully 
restore its authority in those border States. In fact, that result was not ac- 
complished in every portion of the State of Missouri until the close of the war. 

With the opening of spring, and under more favorable weather conditions, 
the operations of both Union and rebel troops became more active and aggressive. 
On the 6th of March, 1S62, Colonel Warren left Benton Barracks with the Third 
Battalion and arrived at Sedalia, Mo., March 9th. The whole regiment was now 
in the field. The headquarters of the regiment were, for a time, at Clinton 
and, later, at Sedalia, the different detachments reporting their operations to 
Colonel Warren, who made his reports to Brigadier General James Totten, com- 
manding the District of Central Missouri. There are many of these reports 
showing the constant activity of the different detachments, their skirmishes 
with the enemy, prisoners, horses and other property captured, casualties sus- 
tained, etc.,^ which demonstrate the importance of the service rendered by the 
regiment during this period of the war. The following account of one of these 
encounters will serve to show the general experience of the different detachments 
and may be considered as typical of all, differing from the others only in 
matters of detail, number engaged, etc. 

On the 14th of April, 1862, a detachment of the regiment, under command 
of Lieutenant Colonel C. E. Moss, had a skirmish with a band of rebels on Sac 
River. On the evening of the same day, Lieutenant Colonel Moss, who had pro- 
ceeded with Lieutenant Barnes and a part of Company K to the town of Mon- 
tevallo. leaving Captain Bryan to bring forward the rest of the command, 
found himself with his small force suddenly surrounded by. a superior force of 
the enemy. In the fight which ensued the leader of the rebel band was killed 
and quite a number of his men were killed and wounded. The First Iowa Cav- 
alry had two men killed and seven wounded in this engagement.^ The follow- 
ing brief extract, from the official report of Lieutenant Colonel Moss, shows 
the conduct of his men in this engagement: 

. . . . Never did men under similar circumstances display greater gallantry 
than those witli me that niglit. Being exposed to a most murderous fire from double 
their number of men well armed, not a man flinched or showed any disposition to sur- 
render, or give up the contest. Lieutenant Barnes and Andrew J. Pugh (my guide) 
deserve my warmest thanks for their cool gallantry and determined courage. The 
rebel band was found to be composed mostly of persons living or staying in the 
immediate vicinity of the place. 

During the month of May, 1862,^ headquarters of the regiment were at 
Butler. Mo. On May 2d, Colonel Warren, with 200 men and a section of the 
First Missouri Light Artillery, started on a scout to the Marias Des Cygnes 
River, and, on the 11th, returned with 30 prisoners and a quantity of arms, am- 
munition and a number of horses and mules captured from the enemy. On the* 
15th, the forage train was fired upon, four miles from camp, by a band of 
bushwhackers, and three men were killed and one wounded. On the 26th and

27th tlie forage train was again attacked and four men were killed and one 
wounded. These attacks were made with a rush, the enemy quickly disap- 
pearing, and in neither case were the cavalry, sent in pursuit, able to overtake 
them. During the month of June, 1862, the twelve companies of the regiment 
were engaged in scouting over a wide range of territory covering six counties, 
and doing guard duty at the various posts in the military sub-district to which 
they were assigned. 

The headquarters of the regiment remained at Butler during the month 
of July. On the 8th, a detachment of 100 men, under command of Lieutenant 
Reynolds, attacked a band of guerrillas, led by the notorious Quantrill, on the 
Lotspeach farm in Cass County; but, finding the enemy strongly posted and 
their number superior to his own, he gave up the effort to dislodge them, after 
having lost one man killed and two men wounded. He retreated to Clinton. 
On the 9th, all the men and officers of Companies A, G and H, stationed at Clin- 
ton, left camp under command of Major James O. Gower, and were joined 
near the Lotspeach farm, on the 10th, by detachments from the companies of the 
regiment stationed at Butler, under command of Captain W. H. Ankeny, of 
Company M. and also by a small body of troops from Warrensburg belonging 
to other regiments; the entire force being under command of Major Gower. 
In the meantime the rebel force, under Quantrill, had retreated to a strong 
position among the wooded hills of Big Creek timber, four miles west of Pleasant 
Hill, in Cass County. There Major Gower attacked them and, after a short but 
fierce engagement, succeeded in routing them, killing and wounding a large num- 
ber and capturing some property. In this engagement the troops under Major 
Gower exhibited great bravery and received his hearty commendation. The 
First Iowa Cavalry lost 3 killed and 10 wounded in the engagement, among the 
latter Lieutenants Reynolds and Foster and Adjutant D. A. Kerr. During the 
remainder of the month the companies of the regiment were engaged in scout- 
ing in the vicinity of the various posts occupied by them. 

During the month of August, 1862, the headquarters of the regiment re- 
mained at Butler. On the 2d, detachments from Companies E, L and M, under 
command of Captain Caldwell, Company I, encountered in the timber on Clear 
Creek, St. Clair County, a band of guerrillas, said to number 300 or 400 men, 
well armed and mounted, under command of one Glowers, a notorious outlaw. 
After a brief but desperate struggle, in which the enemy lost 11 killed, our 
troops, being greatly outnumbered, retired and awaited reinforcements, having 
sent for them to Butler, Clinton and Osceola. The next day Colonel Warren 
arrived with the needed reinforcements, but, in the meantime, the enemy had 
fled and could not be overtaken. In the engagement on the 2d, Captain H. H. 
Heath, of Company L, led the charge with his detachment of 75 men. In his 
report' Captain Heath says: 

. . . . In this engagement our loss was four killed and fourteen wounded, my- 
self among the latter number. The names of the gallant men who fell that morning 
•are Albert C. Alford, Caleb C. Botwood and Michael J. Driscoll, of Company L, and 
Elisha A. Roland of Company M. "We also lost several horses killed, among which 
was my own. In this engagement were many who had never been under fire before, 
but their courage was manifest amidst a most terrific fire of musketry within a few 
paces of them and from an enemy, for the most part, concealed within a thickly 
studded ambush of undergrowth, and who could only be discovered as they rose and 
poured forth their murderous fire upon us. Lieutenants Berryman and Edsell, and 
Sergeant Dunham, of Company M, particularly distinguished themselves as brave and

worthy officers. Subsequent pursuit by Colonel Warren, with a considerable force, 
discovered the fact that the rebels had placed a wide tract of country between them- 
selves and the First Iowa Cavalry.* 

About one week later the headquarters of the regiment were removed to 
Sedalia, and from there Colonel Warren, with a large detachment of his regi- 
ment, proceeded to join General Blunt's forces at Lone Jack, Mo., and took 
part in the pursuit of several thousand rebels, marching, while absent, over 
300 miles. On the 26th, the regiment returned to Camp Warren, near Clinton,, 
and vent into camp there for a brief rest. Previous to starting on this ex- 
pedition — on August 7, 1S62 — the posts at Butler and Osceola had been evacuated 
and all the companies of the regiment were, for the first time in many months, 
\ concentrated in one camp. The regiment remained in camp until September 
20th, on which date it started on the march to S^iringfield, arriving there on 
. the 28th. at which time it was assigned to the Second Brigade, First Division, 
I Army cf the Southwest, Colonel Dye. of the Twentieth Iowa Infantry, com- 
I manding, and marched to Camp McClellan, twelve miles west of Springfield, 
i where it remained until the close of the month. 

Cn the 1st of October, 1862, the regiment, with its brigade and division, 
. started on the march in pursuit of the enemy, — a march made memorable to 
all the troops of the brigade and division on account of its length, its circuitous 
course, the elusive and baffling movements of the enemy and the hardships 
endured. On the 2d the command passed through Mt. Vernon and camped on 
Center Creek. On the 3d continued march to Newtonia. On the 4th came up 
i with the rear of the enemy and had a slight skirmish. On the 9th continued 
t march to Cassville. On the 16th the regiment was transferred to Second 
Brigade, Third Division, Army of the Frontier. On the 17th continued march, 
and on the 18th marched all day and went into camp near Bentonville, Ar- 
kansas. On the 20th marched all night and the next day and bivouacked on 
White River. Marched night of 21st and 22d to Glade Creek, near Huntsville, 
and, halting there for supper, marched all night to camp on W^hite River. On 
the 23d marched back to Cross Hollow, Arkansas, going into camp at Valley 
Springs. On the 27th ten companies of the regiment made a night march to 
a point eight miles southeast of Fayetteville, Arkansas, and had a skirmish 
with the enemy on the morning of the 28th, in which Samuel C. Dickerson, 
Quartermaster of the regiment, was killed. On the 29th the ten companies re- 
turned to camp at Valley Springs. 

On the 1st day of November, 1862. the regiment was in camp at Valley 
Springs. Ark. On the 4th it marched to Elkhorn Tavern, on the old Pea Ridge 
battlefield, arriving there late at night. During the remainder of the month 
the regiment marched from point to point in pursuit of the enemy, and offi- 
cers and men were in the saddle almost constantly during the day and. many 
times, far into the night. The record rhows a distance of 154 miles marched 
prior to the 2.5th of the month, on which date all the available officers and men 
of the regiment started from Camp Curtis on a scout to Yellville, Ark., from 
V. hich they returned on the 30th. having marched while on the scout 250 miles, 
and making over 400 miles for the month. 

On the 3d day of December. 1862, the regiment, with its brigade and divi- 
sion, left Camp Curtis, marching southward, and, at midnight on the 6th, 
reached the headquarters of General James G. Blunt, at Cane Hill, Ark., having

I

marched 98 miles, and having been in the saddle 18 consecutive hours. The 
Second Battalion of the regiment was detailed as rear guard for the wagon 
train of the division, and consequently did not arrive in time to participate in 
the battle which ensued. Owing to the fact that General Herron's division had 
been fighting for several hours before General Blunt's division arrived upon 
the battlefield and attacked the enemy in the rear, the heavy part of the 
fighting was over at that time, and darkness soon put an end to the conflict. 
Moreover, the conditions were unfavorable for bringing the cavalry into close 
contact with the enemy, and therefore the part taken by the two battalions 
of the First Iowa was mainly that of skirmishers and flankers, which subjected 
them to smaller loss than they had sustained in many previous engagements. 
Nevertheless, the First and Third Battalions of the regiment performed their 
whole duty at the battle of Prairie Grove. They obeyed the orders they re- 
ceived implicitly and accepted the minor but important positions assigned them 
after their arrival upon the field, and received the full share of credit to which 
they were justly entitled. The Second Battalion was also doing its full share 
of duty where it had been placed, guarding the supply train, the protection 
of which was so important to all the troops composing the division. Every 
true soldier knows that to be assigned to such duty, when a great battle is in 
progress; to hear the roar of battle and know that, when the official reports 
ar^ written, his name and that of his company or regiment will not be in- 
cluded among those who were active participants, always occasions a feeling 
of regret. The battle of Prairie Grove was the one of greatest magnitude in 
which the First Regiment of Iowa Cavalry participated during its long and 
arduous term of service. That it did not have a conspicuous part in that hard- 
fought battle was not the fault of its officers and men or of its Brigade Com- 
mander. The regiment did all that it was ordered to do, and earned the full 
measure of credit that was accorded to it in the official reports. While it was 
not theirs to share in the glory of having been in the midst of the battle, it 
was theirs to have stood ready and willing to lead the charge into the thickest 
of the fight, had they been called upon to do so. 

On December 27th the regiment started with the expedition, under com- 
mand of Generals Blunt and Herron, to Van Buren, Ark., and took part in the 
capture of that place on the 28th, together with five Arkansas River steam- 
boats loaded with large quantities of army supplies, and many prisoners. Re- 
turning from that expedition on the last day of the month and year 1862, 
the regiment went into camp at Prairie Grove, but only remained there during 
the first day of the new year. 

On the 2d day of January, 1863, the Third Division of the Army of the 
Frontier, of which the regiment was now a part, left its encampment at Prairie 
Grove and marched by way of Fayetteville, Huntsville and Carrollton to Forsyth, 
on White River, Mo. Major Daniel Anderson, with about 400 of the regiment,' 
left the division at Fayetteville on January 4th and proceeded to scour the 
country in advance and along the flanks of the line of march, captured a num- 
ber of prisoners, gained much valuable information, and arrived at Huntsville 
two days in advance of the division. On January 10th. Major J. W. Caldwell, 
with 400 men, marched from Huntsville to a point on Buffalo River, a distance 
of 60 miles, and, early on the morning of the 11th, surprised and captured 75 
guards in charge of extensive saltpeter works, which had been constructed by 
the rebels for the manufacture of powder. These works were situated near the 
summit of a mountain. The troopers of the First Iowa Cavalry clambered up 
the mountain side, taking the guards by surprise, and causing them to boat 
a hasty retreat. The machinery and buildings, together with several tons of 
saltpeter, were destroyed by fire. Captain McQueen, with 200 men, was sent to 



FIRST CAVALRY 11 



destroy works of a similar kind about ten miles distant, which was accomplished 
in like manner, the guards offering but feeble resistance. While returning, 
Captain McQueen succeeded in capturing a drove of horses and mules destined 
for the- rebel army, together with the guards in charge; in this affair Lieuten- 
ant Dustin, Sergeant Morrill and Corporals Newell and Wisener displayed great 
efficiency and gallantry. On the same day Captain Jenks, who was on picket 
duty with the detachment, was attacked by a band of rebels, and, in the fight 
V. hich ensued, the rebel leader was killed by Captain Jenks. The detachment 
rejoined the main command at Carrollton on the 14th. 

On the 15th, all the available cavalry force of the division, under com- 
mand of Colonel Cower, made a rapid march to Yellville, to intercept the rebel 
General Marmaduke on his retreat, after his unsuccessful attack on Springfield. 
A few prisoners captured, with a considerable amount of property, was the re- 
sult of the expedition, the rebel General succeeding in making good his retreat 
into the mountains of Arkansas. Colonel Gower then proceeded to Forsyth with 
his command. While the regiment was in camp there. Colonel Gower went 
to St. Louis to receive a supply of carbines which had been received there for 
the use of the First Iowa Cavalry. During his absence the main part of the 
command marched to Lake Springs, near Rolla, Mo., where they arrived March 
31st. going into camp and establishing regimental headquarters at that place. 
To this camp Colonel Gower returned, bringing with him 250 Colt's revolvers, 
600 Sharp's breech-loading carbines, and 400 cavalry sabers, thus giving the 
regiment a complete set of arms, for the first time in its history. The regi- 
ment was also supplied at this time with a remount of fresh horses, and was 
thus splendidly equipped for the active work of the next campaign, which was 
about to begin. 

On the 20th of April, 1863, about 600 men and officers of the regiment, 
under command of Major Caldwell, joined the expedition under General Van- 
dever, against the rebel forces under Marmaduke, then advancing against Cape 
Girardeau, Mo. General Vandever did not succeed in intercepting Marmaduke's 
force, v,hich attacked the troops under General McNiel at Cape Girardeau and, 
having been repulsed, fell back towards Jackson. General Vandever, moving 
rapidly, came in close proximity to a portion of the rebel forces on their re- 
treat, and the First lovs-a Cavalry, which led the advance, came up with them. 
In the skirmish which ensued the regiment had five men wounded. The pur- 
suit was continued to Chalk Bluff, where the enemy succeeded in crossing the 
St. Francis River and rejoining the main body of Marmaduke's command. The 
regiment returned to Lake Springs May 15th. having been gone 26 days, march- 
ing over 500 miles and suffering greatly on account of insufficient rations. 

The regiment now proceeded to Pilot Knob, with orders to report to General 
J. W. Davidson, and was assigned to the Second Brigade of the cavalry divi- 
sion commanded by that officer, then encamped at Arcadia. Here everything 
that could possibly be dispensed with, in the way of camp equipage, was stored, 
and the troops, unincumbered with anything that would impede rapid move- 
ment, vx-ere put in readiness for the prosecution of an active and vigorous cam- 
paign. On July 1st the division marched from Arcadia to Fredericktown, thence 
to Bloomfield, where it arrived on the 12th and remained eight days. The 
town was fortified, a garrison left to defend it, and a hospital established, in 
which all the sick and disabled men of the division were left in charge of As- 
sistant Surgeon C. H. Lothrop, of the First Iowa Cavalry. On the 20th, the 
division resumed its march over difficult roads, crossed the St. Francis River 
at Chalk Bluff and continued its march southward. Captain J. D. Jenks and 
Lieutenant Hursh, with 50 men of the First Iowa Cavalry, were sent In ad- 
vance with dispatches to General Steele, at Helena, Ark., which difficult and 



12 HISTORICAL SKETCH 



dangerous duty was gallantly performed. The command reached Clarendon, on 
White River, on the 9th of August, and there joined the army under command 
of General Steele. The movement of the combined Union forces against Little j 
Rock now began. 

On August 13th, Captains McQueen and Jones, with 170 picked men of the 
First Iowa Cavalry, were embarked on a gunboat and barges, with orders to 
proceed down White River, effect a landing on the v.est side and made a recon- 
naissance, in order to find where the main body of the enemy was encamped. 
A landing was effected at Aberdeen, in presence of a rebel picket post. Leaving 
the gunboat at anchor in White River, for a cover in case of retreat, the de- 
tachment dashed through the country to the westward, commenced to drive the 
rebel pickets within half a mile of the place of landing, and moved up the 
river, behind the line of rebel pickets stationed along the river, to Devall's 
Blufi!, a distance of 55 miles, then moved west through Brownsville, eluding 
the superior forces of the enemy by shifting positions during the night, until 
ascertaining beyond a doubt that the rebel encampment was on Bayou IMetoe. 
Tho detachment then countermarched, keeping under cover of the timber as 
much as possible, until a superior force was discovered marching on the prairie 
which bed to be crossed. The detachment charged from the timber, taking the 
enemy unprepared; a running fight for five miles ensued, the rebels making a 
rapid retreat. The detachment then re-embarked and arrived at Clarendon the 
evening of the 15th. The whole army crossed White River on the 18th, and the 
cavalry division arrived at Brownsville on the 25th. where a brisk engagement, 
ensued, in which the First Iowa Cavalry had the advance, driving the enemy 
into their encampirent beyond Bayou Metoe. In the engagement which fol- 
lowed on the 27th, the First Iowa, under command of Colonel Anderson, charged 
the rebels, driving them across Bayou Metoe, and following them to the end 
of the bridge in face of a heavy fire of artillery and musketry from the enemy 
posted on the other side, with the hope of saving the bridge, — the only means 
of crossing the deep and sluggish bayou, — but were unable to do so, as the 
rebels had prepared combustible material, which was lighted quickly and the 
bridge destroyed. In this engagement the regiment had 37 men killed and 
wounded, the heaviest loss they had thus far sustained in any single encounter 
T.'ith the enemy. The officers and men behaved with the greatest gallantry. 
Colonel Anderson had his horse shot under him while leading his men in the 
charge. 

The cavalry division now moved southward; a pontoon bridge was laid 
across the Arkansas River during the night of September 9th, and, on the 
morning of September 10th, the cavalry led the way across the bridge and 
brought on the engagement which resulted in the capture of Little Rock about 
sunset of that day. After crossing the river, the First Iowa was actively en- 
gaged throughout the day, and recaptured two howitzers which had been taken 
by the enemy during the early part of the engagement. The regiment now went 
into camp near Little Rock, where it remained during the following winter in 
comparative quiet. Scouting parties and guards to forage trains had occasional 
skirmishes with the enemy, in which the casualties were not heavy, but there 
was much sickness and many died from malarious diseases, v.hile many others 
were months in a state of doubtful convalescence. Among the latter was Cap- 
tain A. G. McQueen, who, on account of a severe attack of typhoid fever, was 
for months prevented from participating in the operations of the regiment, and 
who twice tendered his resignation in order to give his position to some one 
who M'as in physical condition to discharge the duties of the office; but, as a 
just recognition of his value as an officer, his resignation was not accepted, and 
an order was issued detailing him as Senior Inspector General of Cavalry for 



FIRST CAVALRY 



the Military Division west of the Mississippi, and assigning tiim to duty at New 
Orleans, La., until his health should have been sufficiently recovered to enable 
him to rejoin his regiment and resume active duty in the field. The regiment 
was thus able to retain the services of one of its most capable and efficient 
officers, who subsequently won well deserved promotion and became its Com- 
mander. 

On the Sth of December, Captain Jenks, with a detachment of 250 men of 
the regiment, made an attack on a rebel encampment and captured 39 men 
and a considerable amount of camp equipage. Colonel Gower having resigned. 
Lieutenant Colonel Anderson was promoted to Colonel, Major Caldwell to 
Lieutenant Colonel, and Captain McQueen to Major. 

During the early part of 1864 a sufficient number re-enlisted to entitle 
the regiment to assume the title of a veteran organization. According to the 
terms of their re-enlistment, the men were entitled to a thirty days' furlough in 
the State of Iowa, but the conditions then existing imperatively demanded their 
presence in the field, and it was more than a month later when those who sur- 
vived were permitted to enjoy the brief visit to their homes. The regiment 
started on the march to Camden on the 22d of March, 1864. Owing to the great 
scarcity of forage, many horses had died during the winter, and about 400 
men were without mounts and compelled to march on foot. The regiment was 
much of the time in advance of the army, and, on March 30th, had a brisk 
engagement with the enemy, and again on April 2d, when it engaged in a 
running fight for five miles, driving the enemy before it, and again, on April 
4th. when the enemy made a stubborn resistance, inflicting a loss upon the 
regiment of 39 men, killed and wounded. The regiment was the first to enter 
the rebel works at Prairie d'Ane. On April 15th the mounted men were again 
ordered to the front and skirmished with the enemy for six hours, when, by 
order of General Rice, the dismounted jnen were brought to the front and de- 
ployed as skirmishere. and the enemj- was driven back through the city of 
Camden. It will thus be seen that, upon this important expedition, the First 
Iowa Cavalry had done its full share of the fighting and had fully sustained 
its reputation for bravery and efficiency. The object of the expedition having 
been accomplished, the veterans of the regiment, 520 in number, were ordered 
to proceed to the State of Iowa on furlough. The following extract from the 
order of the division commander will serve to show the high estimation in 
which the regiment and its gallant Lieutenant Colonel was held: 

"V. The Brigadier General commanding the division has been highly 
gratified with the cheerfulness and alacrity shown by the regiment under 
the particular hardships of this campaign, as well as its handsomely sustaining 
the reputation for bravery which belongs to Iowa troops. 

VI. To Lieutenant Colonel Caldwell, the division commander is under 
obligations for the skill and bravery he has shown as commander of the Third 
Brigade, and especially for his untiring energy and hearty, cordial, and ef- 
fectual co-operation in the plans of the campaign. 

By order Brigadier General E. A. Carr, 

C. H. Dyer. A. A. G." 

The veterans, having sold their horses to the Government, started from 
Camden on foot, en the 24th of April, on their way to Little Rock, from which 
point they were to be furnished with transportation to Davenport, Iowa. On 
the march to that place, however, they twice encountered the enemy, — first at 
Mono River, near Mark's Mills, on April 24th, and last in the battle at Jenkins' 
Ferry, on Saline River, on April 30th, arriving at Little Rock on the 2d day of 
May, 1864. There the non-veterans (those who had not re-enlisted) remained. 



14 HISTORICAL SKETCH 



while the veterans (those who had re-enlisted) were given a thirty days' fur- 
lough and departed for their homes in Iowa. Here let it be said that, while the 
distinctive title of "Veterans" was bestowed upon the men who were willing 
to continue in the service of their country until the close of the war, and 
was an honorable distinction well deserved by them, their comrades who had 
faithfully complied v.-ith the terms of their enlisfment, and who preferred to 
return to their homes when their three years' term of service should expire, 
were not subjecting themselves to criticism by declining to re-enlist. They, 
too, were veterans, in fact if not in name, and, having been true to the obli- 
gations they had voluntarily assumed, could return to their homes and receive 
the full meed of thanks and honor which was freely accorded them by their 
State and Nation. 

The veterans arrived at Davenport on May 17th, where they received a 
royal welcome. They were given furloughs for thirty days, and, at the expira- 
tion of that time, re-assembled at Davenport, and were soon on their way south 
to rejoin their comrades at Little Rock; but, upon their arrival at Cairo, 111., 
were ordered to return to St. Louis, where they were supplied with horses and 
camp equipage and were sent into North Missouri, where they were again di- 
vided into detachments and stationed at different points along the railroad, for 
the purpose of guarding the road against incursions of rebel bands, who were 
constantly making raids to capture trains and both army supplies and other 
freight passing over the road. While upon this duty the veterq,ns lost seven 
men killed and several wounded. It was a repetition of their past experience 
in Missouri, and they found the conditions that existed during the summer of 
1861 but little changed. In their ignorance and desperation the rebels refused to 
recognize the hopelessness of their cause and were most bitter and unrelenting in 
their hatred and cruelty tovrard Union citizens and their families, and it was 
their custom to give no quarter to the Union soldiers who fell into their hands. 

On the 1st of October, 1864, the veterans were relieved by other troops, 
and, marching to Jefferson City, were there assigned to General Sanborn's 
Brigade and at once moved against their old enemy. General Sterling Price, 
who, with his rebel army, had again invaded Missouri. After the battle of 
Boonville, in which the veterans of the First Iowa Cavalry participated, they 
were retained on .duty at Major General Rosecrans' headquarters, as escort, 
scouts and couriers, until the end of the campaign. They then returned with 
General Rosecrans to St. Louis, remaining there for a few weeks and receiving 
a complete outfit of everything necessary for another extended campaign. They 
were then conveyed to Cairo, by rail, and thence, by steamer, to Little Rock, 
arriving there on the 29th of December, 1864, and rejoining the non-veteran 
portion of the regiment, from which they had been so long separated. The 
non-veterans had, in the meantime, been under the command of Major J. D. 
Jenks, and had performed active and efficient service in the country surrounding 
Little Rock; had been engaged in numerous skirmishes, and had received the 
commendation of the General commanding for their faithful performance of 
duty. Their term of service having expired, the non-veterans were mustered 
out of the service at Little Rock and returned to Iowa, v.hile the recruits were 
assigned to the companies of the veteran organization. 

The beginning of the year 1865 found the veteran regiment united, well 
mounted and eouipped. ready and willing to perform its full share in crushing 
out the great Rebellion, which was everywhere on the wane, and which it was 
no--' evident could not continue throughout the year. The very desperation of 
their cause, however, seemed to inspire the enemy with a fixed purpose to fight 
to the last, and fight they did until their resources were entirely exhausted. 



FIRST CAVALRY 1& 



Lieutenant Colonel McQueen was now in command of the regiment. On 
January 14, 1865, a detachment of the First Iowa, together with detachments 
from other regiments of the division, all under the command of Major James 
D. Jenks, of the First Iowa, was ordered to proceed to Dardanelle, about 100 
miles up the Arkansas River. The troops were conveyed by boats. After ef- 
fecting a landing, Major Jenks at once led his command against a force of the 
enemy 1,600 strong, and, after a brisk engagement, defeated them. For his suc- 
cessful management of the expedition Major Jenks was given the brevet rank 
of Lieutenant Colonel. On January 22d the regiment, together with other troops, 
moved against a rebel force encamped near Camden, and, after a brief engage- 
ment, defeated them, capturing a number of their men and horses. Lieutenant 
C. W. W. Dow was particularly commended for his gallantry and efSciency in 
leading the advance guard on this expedition. The names of the killed and 
wounded in these and subsequent engagements will all be found noted in the 
subjoined Roster. 

On February 12, 1865, the regiment received orders to proceed to Memphis, 
Tenn., and, conveyed by transports, reached that city on the 20th, remaining 
there until March 4th, when it became part of a cavalry force which went in 
pursuit of the rebel General Forrest. During this expedition Lieutenant Col- 
onel ^IcQueen, with a detachment of the First Iowa, met and defeated a por- 
tion of Forrest's command on the Tallahatchie River. The regiment returned 
to Memphis on February 22d. It then moved to Collierville, Tenn., and, from 
its camp at that place, sent out detachments in pursuit of the roving bands of 
the enemy who still infested the country, killing many and finally dispersing 
them. 

The rebellion was now practically suppressed, and it seemed that the 
Government might soon be able to dispense with the service of the regiment, 
and the men were looking forv.ard with fond anticipation for the order for 
their discharge. This hope was rudely dispelled, however, when orders were 
received for the First Iowa, Fifth and Twelfth Illinois, Second Wisconsin and 
Seventh Indiana Cavalry Regiments to embark on transports, proceed to Alex- 
andria. La., and there report to Major General G. A. Custer for further orders: 
The command arrived at Alexandria June 22d, 1865, and on the following day 
General Custer issued an order, the strict enforcement of which brought great 
hardship and humiliation upon the splendid regiments composing his command. 
The full details of the terrible experience through which the regiment passed 
while under command of this Martinet of the Regular Army are given in the 
report of Lieutenant Colonel A. G. McQueen to the Adjutant General of lovra, 
including copies of official orders, affidavits and correspondence upon the sub- 
ject, in which the honor of the regiment is most completely vindicated." 

General Custer was a brave and dashing cavalry officer who had won dis- 
tinction in the eastern army for his efficient services in many battles, but he 
had been trained in a severe school of discipline and was utterly unfit for 
the command of volunteers, under the conditions that existed at the close of 
hostilities. He lacked the essential qualifications — kindness of heart, tact and 
good judgment of human nature — which would have enabled him to enforce a 
proper degree of discipline, and. at the same time, have secured the respect 
and attachment instead of the cordial hatred of the men under his command. 
His reckless bravery later cost him his life, and that of every man under his 
command, when he made an attack with an inferior force upon an overwhelm- 
ing force of Indians, under the command of the famous chief, "Sitting Bull," 
on the northwestern frontier. It is altogether to the credit of the men and officers 



^Report of Adjutant General of Iowa, 1867, Vol. 2, pages 514-538, inclusive. 



16 HISTORICAL SKETCH 



of the First Iowa Cavalry that they were able to submit to the cruel indigni- 
ties to which they were subjected while under the command of General Custer, 
instead of being driven to open insubordination and revolt. Every true soldier 
understands the necessity for discipline in an army, and yields willing obedi- 
ence, even when the discipline is more severe than necessary, and enforced in 
the most unpleasant manner by a tyrannical officer. It was a new and hard 
experience for these brave men, and the official records show that they submitted 
to it rather than have the history of their service tarnished by a single act of 
insubordination. 

From the 22d day of June to the 8th of August the regiment remained at 
Alexandria, when it started on the march to Texas. It was halted at various 
points in that State until November 4th, on which date it arrived at Austin, 
the Capital of the State, where the headquarters of the regiment were maintained 
during the remainder of its service. Detachments were stationed for a few 
weeks at a time at different county seats, from the borders of the Indian Nation 
to the southern portion of the State, for the purpose of preserving order and 
assisting the civil authorities in the discharge of their functions, and the en- 
forcement of the laws in the trial of offenders by the courts, which could only 
be done by the presence of soldiers. The turbulent character of a large part 
of the population, and the demoralization resulting from a long continued war, 
rendered the presence of soldiers necessary for the protection of the lives and 
property of the better class of citizens who were endeavoring to secure the res- 
toration of the functions of civil government. The First Iowa Cavalry con- 
tributed its best efTorts to accomplish this desirable result. 

On the 15th day of February, 1866, the regiment was mustered out of the 
service of the United States at Austin, Texas, and, four days later, started for 
Davenport, Iowa, where it arrived on the 13th of March. On the 16th day of 
March, the officers and men received final payment, the regiment was disbanded 
and all returned to their respective homes, to resume the peaceful avocations 
they had abandoned when they responded to the call of their country. Lieuten- 
ant Colonel McQueen, who was in command of the regiment at the time it was 
mustered out, says, in closing its official history: 

"Lieutenant Henry L. Morrill, Regimental Adjutant, is particularly de- 
serving of honorable mention for his long and efficient services as an officer 
and soldier, and especially for the valuable aid rendered in superintending the 
making out of the final muster out papers of the regiment." 

The final paragraph in the history has deeply impressed the compiler of 
this sketch. It reads as follows: 

"On account of not having the regimental records at hand many deeds 
of individual heroism, which might with propriety be mentioned, are omitted in 
this history. The number and names of those belonging to the regiment, who 
died and were killed in battle, have already been reported to your office, and I 
will trust to the pen of the future historian to speak, so their immolation will 
not be forgotten." 

The compiler deeply regrets his inability to fulfill the trust thus imposed. 
While he had much of the experience which pertained to the common lot of 
the soldier who served from the commencement to the close of that great war, 
the infantry organization to which he belonged was never in close proximity 
to the First Iowa Cavalry, and he has no personal knowledge of the deeds of 
individual heroism of its members; but, if he had such knowledge, or had been 
able to obtain it from others, the limitations under vvhich this sketch has been 
compiled would preclude the reference to such cases, beyond the very limited 
number found in the official reports. The brief paragraphs opposite the names 
contained in the subjoined Roster must therefore suffice. The official records 



FIRST CAVALRY 17 



from which the Roster is compiled give only a brief summary of the facts 
connected with the service of each member of the regiment, but they are the 
only source of information to which the compiler has had access. While some 
errors and omissions will no doubt be found, it is believed that, in the main, 
the records have been correctly kept, and that this compilation will preserve 
to posterity the record of these brave men of Iowa, who, nearly half a cen- 
tury ago, went forth to fight the battles of their country. In conclusion, it may 
be justly claimed for the First Iowa Cavalry — as an organization — that it made 
a record second to none in the long list of splendid Iowa regiments which won 
glory and honor for State and Nation in one of the greatest wars in history.

Second Regiment 

Iowa Volunteer Cavalry 



HISTORICAL SKETCH 
SECOND REGIMENT IOWA VOLUNTEER CAVALRY 



The Second Regiment of Iowa Cavalry was organized under the proclama- 
tion of President Lincoln, dated July 23, 1861. The twelve companies com- 
posing the regiment were ordered into quarters by Governor Kirkwood, between 
the dates July 20 and Sept. 4, 1861. Davenport was the designated rendezvous, 
and there the different companies were mustered into the service of the United 
States by Captain Alexander Chambers, United States Army, on dates ranging 
from August 30 to September 28, 1861. The total number of enlisted men and 
officers of the regiment at the date of muster in of the last company was 1,001, 
but this number was considerably increased by additional enlistments before the 
regiment left the State.' 

The regiment was fortunate in having for its first commander a graduate 
of West Point, w-ho, at the time he received his commission from Governor 
Kirkwood, was a Major in the Third Regiment of United States Cavalry, with 
a record of fifteen years of honorable service in the Regular Army." AVhile he 
was a strict disciplinarian, he was also just and fair in the enforcement of dis- 
cipline and in his treatment of the officers and men under his command, and 
thus secured their confidence and respect. He was a superior military in- 
structor, and his regiment rapidly acquired the rudiments of a military edu- 
cation so necessary for the work which was before them, and the practical ex- 
perience which soon followed — under the command of this thoroughly trained 
officer — was of more value than a longer period of drill and instruction in camp 
would have been. The other field officers were very capable men and soon 
demonstrated their fitness for the discharge of their respective duties. They 
were without military training and experience, but possessed of superior in- 
telligence, and soon became proficient in the knowledge of tactics and the 
handling of men in action. This was particularly true of Lieutenant Colonel 
Edward Hatch, who was possessed of the true military spirit in such large 
degree that he was from the first conspicuous for his superior ability, and was 
held in the highest esteem by Colonel Elliott and by all the officers and men of 
the regiment. 

On the 7th of December, 1861, the regiment left Davenport and was con- 
veyed by transports to St. Louis, where it went into quarters at Benton Bar- 
racks. During the time it remained there Colonel Elliott exerted himself to 
the utmost in imparting such instruction as would secure for the regiment as 
much knowledge of the theory and art of war as it was possible to obtain 
before it would be called upon to take the field. While at Benton Barracks the 
regiment suffered greatly from sickness and there were a great many deaths. 
There was probably no period in its subsequent history when disease made

such sad havoc in its ranks in so short a time. The men had not yet become 
used to the great change in conditions of living; had not yet learned how to 
properly prepare their food; and, above all, the sanitary conditions of the bar- 
racks were bad, the ventilation was poor and their quarters were overcrowded. 
It was therefore a welcome change when the order came for the regiment to 

take the field. 

On the 17th of February. 1862, the regiment, with its horses and camp 
equipage, embarked on transports and was conveyed to Bird's Point, Mo. 
Shortly after its arrival there, Major Love, with four companies of the regi- 
ment, started in pursuit of a band of rebels supposed to be encamped near 
Charleston, Mo., but did not succeed in finding them. On February 28th the 
remainder of the regiment, under command of Colonel Elliott, proceeded to 
Charleston where it was joined by the detachment under Major Love and 
the entire command then went in pursuit of the rebel forces under Colonel Jeff 
Thompson, but did not succeed in overtaking them, they having separated into 
small parties and dispersed upon the approach of Colonel Elliott's command. 
The capture of a few rebels was the total result of this first short expedition 
into the enemy's territory, but. as the weather and roads were bad and Colonel 
Elliott had yet to learn the methods adopted by the elusive enemy, (who had the 
advantage of a thorough knowledge of the country.) this initial movement 
served to enlighten the officers and men and gave them an experience by which 
they were benefited in their next expedition, which was productive of excellent 
results. The compiler here avails himself of the information contained in the 
official record and report of the subsequent operations of the regiment in the 
campaign which followed:" 

. . . On February 27th began our active pursuit of Jeff Thompson's army 
towards New Madrid, driving in his scouts and bodies of cavalrj-, over a country 
almost impassable, fording, sometimes swimming, swamps scarcely penetrable, in 
snow and rain, capturing prisoners and horses. This duty occupied the regiment until 
March 12th, when we rejoined Pope's army at New Madrid in time to participate In 
the attack and bombardment of that place ; after it was reduced, from March 12th to 
April 6th, occupied continually guarding teams, scouting and picket duty. April 7th, 
crossed the Mississippi, our advance under Lieutenant G-ustavus Schnitger, being the 
first troops in Island No. 10, capturing 200 prisoners. We pursued the retreating 
enemy toward Tiptonville. We were then ordered back to Camp New Madrid, being 
absent five days. 

On the 12th of April, 1862, the regiment, with the Army of the Mississippi, 
commanded by General Pope, embarked on transports at New Madrid and 
moved down the river toward Fort Pillow, but, by order of General Halleck, the 
objective point of the expedition was changed, and the fleet of transports pro- 
ceeded to the mouth of the Tennessee and thence up that river to Hamburg, 
where they landed and the troops disembarked. Here the regiment was as- 
signed to the Second Brigade, CavaliT Division, Army of the Mississippi, and, 
with that organization, at once entered upon an active and aggressive campaign. 
Colonel Elliott was placed in command of the brigade, and Lieutenant Colonel 
Hatch was left in command of the regiment. The following extracts are made 
from the official reports of Lieutenant Colonel Hatch,^ and embrace the prin- 
cipal operations of the regiment to the close of the month of August, 1862.

SECOND CAVALRY 217 



V. May 3d, received at nine o'clock in the morning an order from Colonel 
Elliott, commanding the Second Brigade, Cavalry Division, to proceed witli the 
entire regiment immediately to the Memphis and Charleston Railroad, between Burns- 
ville and Glendale, and there to destroy a trestle work and otherwise to render useless, 
for the time being, the railroad at that point. 

Without quoting the details of the movements of tlie regiment whicli led 
up to the perfect and complete execution of this order and the capture of several 
prisoners, besides a number of mules and wagons, Avithout any casualties to his 
command, suffice it to say that Lietitenant Colonel Hatch returned with his 
regiment to its camp at S o'clock in the evening of the day he received the 
order. The promptness and skill with which the order was executed served 
to increase the confidence of the regiment in its commander; the officers and 
men. having faith in his good judgment and bravery, were ready to follow him 
in any dangerous undertaking and to yield implicit obedience to his orders. 
That this confidence was fully justified was demonstrated only a few days later, 
as the following extracts from his official report will show: 

VI. May Sth — Skirmish with the enem.N- near Farmington, lost two men killed 
and six wounded. Lieutenant Washburn cut his way through the enemj- after being 
captured, losing his horse by many balls. 

VII. May 9th — Complying with an order of Colonel Elliott, commanding Second 
Brigade, Cavalry Division, to report with Second Regiment Iowa Cavalry to General 
Granger, I did so. Receiving instructions from General Pope to report to General com- 
manding the advance at Farmington, reported at twelve o'clock to General Palmer, 
who ordered me to throw out two companies on left of the main Farmington road, and 
hold the balance of the regiment in reserve under the hill, where the crossing of the 
swamp approaches Farmington. Our infantry who had held the field above us being 
driven to the brow of the hill. General Paine ordered the regiment to charge the 
enemy's batteries. Moving column to top of hill, I ordered Major Coon, with companies 
H, G, C and part of A, of the Second Battalion, and Major Love's Third Battalion, to 
charge the battery on our left in echelons of squadrons. Deploying the columns to the 
right and left, when we had passed our infantry lines, we attacked the skirmishers 
and supports of the enemy, driving them in and killed and wounded some. The battery 
on our left near the Farmington road, on account of the' ground being impracticable, 
the battery and supports protected by a fence ; the fire from this was very severe, and 
though our men could not reach the guns, the enemy's gunners, evidently alarmed at 
the charge, ceased working their guns. Major Coon's Battalion, led by him, gallantly 
attacked the battery near the building known as the cotton mill (the center battery). 
Lieutenant Reily, commanding Company F, of Third Battalion, attacked and carried 
two guns in battery on our extreme right. The center battery was fairly carried, the 
gunners driven from their guns, the enemy limbering up his guns without taking 
them off tho field. Finding our horses badly blown, from a long charge over rough 
ground, and the infantry of the enemy in great force, I, under a hea\'j' flre, ordered 
all companies oh my right to retreat to the right and rear, forming on the swamp 
road, and those on my left to join the regiment in this road. I ordered Major Hep- 
burn to move to the rear, retaining Major Coon with two companies to pick up the 
wounded and scattered. My orders were carried out better than I could have ex- 
pected. My Chief Bugler's bugle was rendered useless in the charge; four of my 
orderlies having had their horses killed, and two being shot out of the saddle when 
transmitting orders. The conduct of officers and men was in every way commendable. 
Captains Lundy, Egbert, and Lieutenant Owen, wounded near the enemy's guns. 
Lieutenants Horton, Moore and Schnitger all had horses killed under them. Captam 
D. J. Crocker and Lieutenant Moore of Company K, Captain McConnell and Lieutenant 
Foster of Company M, Captain Kendrick of Company E, Captain Eaton and Lieutenant 
Belden of Company L, all of the First Battalion, led in the finest manner by Major 
Hepburn, rode through the hottest fire and were rallied by Major Hepburn on the 
right when retiring, in fine style, and formed in good order in the rear of the swamp 
to await orders. Major Coon, Captain H. Egbert, Captain William Lundy, Lieutenant 
Owen and Lieutenant Horton of the L Battalion, led the charge on the right in the 



218 HISTORICAL SKETCH 



finest manner, riding boldly in advance of their commands, and in advance of th& 
entire regiment. The daring of Lieutenant Queal, commanding Company B, was con- 
spicuous, cheering his men to the very muzzles of the enemy's guns. Captain Bishop 
of Company I, and Captain Graves of Company D, obeyed my orders promptly under 
heavy fire. Lieutenant Schnitger, Acting Regimental Adjutant, and Lieutenant Met- 
calf. Battalion Adjutant, did their duties to my entire satisfaction. Before and at 
time of charge. Captain Freeman and Lieutenant Eystra, with detachments of Com- 
panies A, G and H, as skirmishers dismounted, did excellent service in the swamps on 
our left, holding the enemy's skirmishers in check. There were about 4 00 men in the 
charge. Our loss will scarcely exceed fifty killed and wounded, fifty horses killed and 
fifty rendered unserviceable from wounds. 

The report of Lieutenant Colonel Hatch (from which the preceding quota- 
tions were made) describes with great particularity of detail the operations 
of the regiment during the remainder of the campaign. Limitation of space 
will preclude further extended quotations from the report covering this period 
of the service of the regiment. The compiler will, however, endeavor to cover 
in a condensed form the most important events (as shown by the report) which 
occurred, from the day following the charge at Farmington up to and including 
August 27, 1862, upon which date the summer campaign may be said to have 
ended and the fall campaign begun. 

On May 13th a portion of the regiment had a skirmish near Farmington, 
driving the enemy's skirmishers within their lines. On May 26th, detachments 
from the Second Iowa and Second Michigan Cavalry, under command of 
Lieutenant Colonel Hatch, left camp near Farmington in the evening, under 
orders to locate and attack a force of the enemy supposed to be encamped near 
Burnsville, or Jacinto, Miss., encountered the enemy's pickets near the latter 
place in considerable force, but the main body had made good their retreat, 
and, in obedience to his orders, Lieutenant Colonel Hatch abandoned the pur- 
suit and returned to camp the next morning, having marched thirty-five miles 
during the night, a part of the way through swamps and over difficult roads. 
On the 28th, the Second Iowa and Second Michigan Cavalry, under command 
of Colonel Elliott, (the Second Iowa under command of Lieutenant Colonel 
Hatch,) left camp at Farmington and marched rapidly by a circuitous route, 
for the purpose of deceiving the enemy as to the object of the expedition, and, 
on the morning of May 30th, appeared before the town of Booneville, the force 
of the enemy which had been left to guard the town falling back before him 
with but slight resistance. The capture of Booneville was followed by very 
important results, as the following statement of Lieutenant Colonel Hatch will 
show: "I found standing on the track an engine disabled, 26 cars loaded with 
10,000 stand of arms, 1,000 small and side arms, 800,000 rounds of ball cartridge. 
100,000 rounds of fixed ammunition for six and eight pound guns, three mounted 
field pieces, one car of horse equipments and team harness, haversacks, cross 
belts, cartridge boxes, canteens and knapsacks for 10,000 men; and a large 
amount of stores. The railroad depot was filled with commissary stores, 3.000 
stand of arms, shells of a large size, medical stores and 300 kegs and barrels 
of powder marked 'Alabama Powder Company.' " 

Upon entering the town the telegraph wire was cut, thus preventing speedy 
communication to the enemy and the arrival of a sufficient force to save the 
rmmense quantity of supplies which had fallen into the hands of the regiment. 
■The tram and buildings were at once set on fire and everything destroyed, thus 
inflicting great damage to the rebel army which had just evacuated its strong- 
nold at Corinth and was in full retreat southward. Shortly after this brilliant 
exploit, m recognition of his valuable service as a brigade commander. Colonel 
i-lliott was promoted to the rank of Brigadier General and assigned to the 
position of Chief of Staff to Major General Rosecrans, and Lieutenant Colonel 



SECOND CAVALRY 219 



Hatch was promoted to Colonel of the regiment. The only casualties in the 
regiment during the expedition to and capture of Booneville were one man 
killed, two wounded, and four captured by the enemy while scouting. On 
May 30th, Captain Kendrick, while on a scout with a detachment of the regi- 
ment, had an encounter with the enemy, in which he lost one man killed and 
two wounded, and captured fifty prisoners. 

On the 4th of June the regiment and brigade, while in pursuit of the re- 
treating rebel army, had a brisk engagement with the rear guard of the 
enemy, in which the regiment lost two men killed, eight wounded and two 
missing." A prisoner, captured in this engagement, reported the loss of the 
enemy to have been thirty men, killed and wounded. During the greater part of 
the month of June the regiment was almost constantly engaged in watching 
the movements of the enemy in advance of the army, had several skirmishes 
and captured a number of prisoners. On June 24th it moved forw'ard, taking 
the extreme advance of the army, the Second Iowa being encamped nearest 
the enemy, one-half mile in advance of the brigade. 

On the morning of July 1, 1862, the enemy was discovered in strong 
force approaching the camp of the Second Iowa, whose pickets reported the 
number of rebels in sight as greatly superior to the combined strength of the 
regiment and that of the Second Michigan, and those two regiments, con- 
stituting as they did the outpost of the Union army, would have been justified 
in retreating until they could have been within supporting distance of the in- 
fantry. But the officer'^ who had succeeded General Elliott in command of this 
small cavalry brigade saw his opportunity for a strategic movement that would 
enable him to overcome the superior force to which he was opposed. The 
entire strength of his command was far less than the maximum number of 
a single regiment of cavalry, (less than 800 men,) but, from this small force 
he boldly detached four companies, two from each regiment, with orders to 
move rapidly and gain the rear of the approaching force of the enemy. He 
then posted his remaining force in a strong position and awaited the attack 
of the enemy, whose force was estimated to be not less than 4,000. The two 
cavalry regiments were splendidly armed and mounted, had absolute confidence 
in their leaders, and the result proved the confidence was not misplaced. With- 
out attempting to give the details of the fighting which ensued, suffice it to 
say that the attack of the rebels was met by such a heavy fire that they 
fell back in disorder and were met by a charge of the detachment which had 
been sent to attack them in rear, which resulted in their being driven from 
the field with heavy loss. The enemy made every effort to get their killed 
and wounded off the field, but left 17 killed and 12 wounded, among them two 
officers, and, in addition, 13 men captured. The total loss of the enemy was 
estimated at over 100, while that of Colonel Sheridan's Brigade was but 47 
killed, wounded and missing, divided about equally betw^een the Second Iowa 
and Second Michigan Cavalry. Considering the disparity in numbers, this 
was one of the most notable achievements of cavalry troops that had occurred

up to that time, or, as a matter of fact, that occurred at any time during the 
war. The General commanding promptly issued a highly commendatory order 
from which the following extract is taken: 

General Orders 

Headquarters, Army of the Mississippi, July 2, 1862. 
The General commanding announces to this army that on the 1st instant Colonel 
P. H. Sheridan, Second Michigan Cavalry, with eleven companies of the Second Michi- 
gan and eleven companies of the Second Iowa Cavalry, was attacked near Booneville 
by eight regiments of rebel cavalry under Chalmers, and after an eight hours' fight 
defeated and drove them back, leaving their dead and wounded on the field. The 
coolness, determination and fearless gallantry displayed by Colonel Sheridan and the 
officers and men of his command, in this action, deserve the thanks and admiration of 

the army 

By order of General Rosecrans, United States Army. 

W. L. Elliott, 
Brigadier General and Chief of Staff.' 

This order was promulgated to the cavalry division commanded by 
General Gordon Granger, and ordered to be read at the head of each company 
in his command, together with an order of his own, from the concluding part 
of which the following extract is taken: 

. . . . A soldier's dearest meed is his consciousness that his duties to his 
country have been well and worthily performed, and next to this is the reflection that 
his conduct is rightfully appreciated by his country and his superiors in command. 
The commanding general is happy to know that this meed of commendation was never 
more nobly earned or better deserved than by the soldiers of this division, and no 
greener laurels have been won in tliis great struggle by tlie hardy sons of the West 
than those of the Cavalry Division of the Army of the Mississippi.' 

In his dispatch to General Rosecrans — written on the field — Colonel Sheri- 
dan said: 

I was attacked this morning by from eight to ten regiments of cavalry, under 
command of General Chalmers, and have driven them back. They attacked ffiy ad- 
vanced guard about two miles southwest of Booneville, on the Blackland road. I im- 
mediately supported it by one battalion of my own regiment, and then sent additional 
supports. I then directed Captain Alger, with two companies of the Second Iowa and 
two companies of my own regiment, to charge them in the rear — this was hand- 
somely done — and at the same time Major Coon of the Second Iowa, with his battalion, 
to make a dash in front and on their left. This haltered the enemy very much and 
enabled me to hold them during the whole day. About 3 :30 P. M. they commenced 
retreating. I regret that I am not able to follow them up. I sent for Mizner's Cavalry 
to Rienzi ; also for artillery support from General Asboth. They have not arrived. 
I have just written to General Asboth that I will not need infantry support. You had 
better be the judge. The enemy will not again attack me today, and probably have 
retreated finally. My command behaved handsomely. I regret the loss of some officers 
and men ; I do not as yet know how many. The enemy have been badly injured. 
This force came from Tupelo and Saltillo. I learn this, as well as their strength, from 
prisoners taken.' 

In his official report, written the next day. Colonel Sheridan describes ; 
in detail the different movements of his command and those of the enemy [ 
during the engagement. He makes special mention of the gallantry and good ' 
conduct of Colonel Hatch, Majors Coon and Hepburn and Captains Gilbert and 
Queal of the Second Iowa. He also highly commends a number of officers

of his own regiment, the Second Michigan, and gives equal credit to both 
organizations for the brave and gallant manner in which they obeyed his 
orders and won a glorious victory where defeat seemed inevitable. In his 
official report. Colonel Hatch, in addition to the names of officers mentioned by 
Colonel Sheridan, includes those of Captain Graves and Lieutenants Foster and 
Wright. The compiler has devoted a somewhat larger amount of space to 
this engagement than to those which preceded it, or than he will be able to de- 
vote to most of those which follow. He considers himself justified in doing 
so because of the fact that it marked an important epoch, not only in the 
history of the regiment but of the war. It was the formative period in the de- 
velopment of the military genius of the three officers who occupied the most 
conspicuous positions and who. at the close of the great War of the Rebellion, 
nad won the greatest distinction. — Grant, Sherman and Sheridan, that gi-eai 
triumvirate of American military chieftains, who were not inspired or actuated 
by the motives of self aggrandizement that governed that other great trium- 
virate in the days of ancient Rome, but were animated by one common patriotic 
purpose and that alone — the salvation of the Republic. 

Following closely upon the battle of Booneville came the promotion of 
Colonel Sheridan to the rank of Brigadier General and his transfer to a larger 
command in the Army of the Ohio. On the 9th of July the camp of the Second 
Iowa was moved to Rienzi, Miss. There the regiment remained in comparative 
quiet until the 26th of August, on which date a considerable force of rebel 
cavalry made a sudden dash upon the pickets of the regiment and captured 
six of them. Colonel Hatch immediately went in pursuit of the enemy, following 
them for twenty miles, and twice brought them to a brief stand, inflicting 
heavy damage upon them, taking eigHt prisoners and a quantity of arms and 
ammunition, which the enemy abandoned after making their last stand. The 
loss of the Second Iowa consisted of the six prisoners taken on the picket 
line, besides six others wounded in the subsequent engagements and a number 
of horses killed and disabled. The pursuit was abandoned late in the evening, 
the men and horses becoming exhausted oh account of the excessive heat. 
Lieutenant Colonel Hatch calls particular attention to the operations of a de- 
tachment under the command of First Lieutenant Anton Scherer, of Company 
E, which pursued a portion of the enemy on the Ripley road for nine miles, 
keeping up a running fire and sometimes charging with the saber. Lieutenant 
Scherer only abandoned the pursuit upon being recalled by Colonel Hatch at 
dark. 

On the 5th of September, 1862, the regiment broke camp at Rienzi and. 
from that date, was actively engaged in the campaign which ensued and lasted 
until the end of the year. The operations of the regiment in this campaign were 
so numerous that they cannot be here described, on account of limitation of 
space. Suffice it to say that the duties performed were arduous in the ex- 
trenif. The officers and men were almost constantly in the saddle during the day 
and often far into the night, operating upon the flanks and in advance of the 
army, coming frequently into contact with small parties of the enemy, giving 
and receiving hard blows now and then, killing, wounding and capturing a 
few of the enemy here and there, and suffering like reverses in their turn. 
In the hard-fought battles of luka and Corinth the regiment performed im 
portant service but did not become closely engaged. They were always ready, 
however, to exectite any orders they received, and the General commanding 
was kept advised of the movements of the enemy everywhere upon the field 
by the quickly moving detachments of cavalry, while upon the infantry and 
artilh-ry devolved the heavy, continuous fighting which determined the fortune 



222 HISTORICAL SKET(\n 



of battle in favor of the one and against the other of the contending armies. 
The great battle of Corinth, on the 3d and 4th days of October, and that which 
followed a day or two later on the Hatchie River, closed the fall campaign. 

Another great campaign was now undertaken by Generai Grant, which 
had for its objective point the rebel stronghold at Vicksburg, Misb. The pre- 
liminary movements of this campaign, as well as most of the fighting during 
its progress, devolved upon the cavalry, and in these movements and conflicts 
the Second Iowa bore a conspicuous part. At this time Colonel Hatch was in 
command of the brigade to which his regiment was attached, and Lieutenant 
Colonel Hepburn was serving upon the staff of General Rosecrans, the co.ii- 
mand of the regiment devolving upon Major Datus E. Coon, an officer In every- 
way well qualified and worthy of the honor thus bestowed. The regiment ad- 
vanced from Corinth on November 2, 1SC2, and joined the cavalry division 
at Grand Junction on the 4th. On November 12th, the army began its marc^ 
southward, the cavalry brigade, commanded by Colonel Hatch, taki:;^ tne ad- 
vance, the scouts keeping well out in front and on the flanks. The enemy's 
cavalry was alert and watchful and skirmishing occurred frequently. On sev- 
eral occasions the enemy was encountered in force and the losses or. both 
sides were quite heavy. The most notable of these encounters were at Water 
Valley and Coffeeville. In the former of these Colonel Hatch was entirely suc- 
cessful, defeating the enemy, killing and wounding many and capturing l.'iO, 
besides a large number of horses and mules. At Coffeeville, however, the 
rebel General "Van Dorn made a determined stand with a large force of in- 
fantry, artillery and cavalry, and, after a short but hard-fought engagement, 
the Union cavalry found themselves too greatly outnumbered and were com- 
pelled to retreat. The loss of the Second Iowa in this encounter was 22 men, 
killed and wounded. In his ofiicial report of the operations of his brigade on 
the Mississippi Central Expedition, Colonel Hatch gives the full details of each 
movement and engagement. His description of the desperate situation in which 
the Second Iowa Cavalry was placed, at the junction of the Water Valley and 
Panola roads> and the splendid -manner in which they fought to extricate 
themselves, the conspicuous gallantry of the four rifle companies, who were 
surrounded but refused to surrender and fought their way through the ranks 
of the enemy and had five out of seven officers wounded, is of special interest. 
In closing his report he says: "Of the officers and soldiers of my command I 
cannot speak too highly, especially of the officers and soldiers of the Second Iowa 
Cavalry, who, when the enemy was advancing upon them from the front and 
either fiank, conducted themselves like veterans, pouring volley after volley 
into the advancing columns." The Colonel makes special mention of the gal- 
lantry of Majors Coon and Kendrick and Lieutenant Belden."' Van Dorn now 
concentrated all his available cavalry and executed a bold and brilliant move- 
ment. Passing entirely around General Grant's army, he suddenly appeared 
before Holly Springs, where an immense quantity of supplies and military 
stores had been accumulated, guarded by a force of infantry, cavalrv and 
artillery, deemed amply sufficient for defense against any ordinary force of 
the enemy that might have been reasonably supposed to be available to be 
brought against them. Even with the superior force with which Van Dorn 
made the attack, the forces guarding the place might have held out until they 
could have been reinforced, but for the incompetency of the officer in command, 
who was subsequently dismissed from the service for having surrendered himself 
ana the greater portion of his command, after making but a feeble resistance.

SECOND CAVALRY 223 



The following extract from General Grant's order of dismissal of the unfaith- 
ful officer shows his appreciation of the gallant conduct of the officers and 
men who refused to surrender and cut their way out through the enemy's 
lines: 

. . . . It is gratifying to notice, in contrast with tliis, tlie conduct of a por- 
tion of the command ; conspicuous among whom was the Second Illinois Cavalry, who 
gallantly and successfully resisted being taken prisoners. Their loss was heavy, but 
the enemy's was much greater. Such conduct as theirs will always insure success. 
Had the commandant of the post exercised the usual and ordinary precautions for 
defense, the garrison was sufficiently strong to have repulsed the enemy, saved our 
stores from destruction and themselves from capture. '^ 

The destruction of his supplies compelled General Grant to abandon the 
expedition, which, up to that time, had promised such satisfactory results, and 
to at once begin a retreat towards his main base of supplies at Memphis. This 
retreat was' fraught with great suffering, the men and animals being reduced 
almost to the point of starvation before the wagon trains, sent from Memphis 
and La Grange, under heavy escort, could reach them with the much needed 
supplies. The compiler has a vivid personal recollection of the pangs ot 
hunger which he and his comrades endured on tliat dreadful march. 

The regiment with its brigade and division had accomplished much, up 
to the time the campaign was brought to such an abrupt termination. In their 
many encounters they had inflicted heavy damage upon the enemy, not only 
in killed and wounded, but had captured many prisoners, horses and mules, 
befides destroying much property of great value to the enemy. When the re- 
trograde march began, they constituted the rear guard of the army, which 
was again the post of honor, involving the same constant vigilance and ardu- 
ous service which was required in leading the advance. In addition to the 
duty of guarding the rear of the army against the near approach of the 
enemy, the cavalry division performed another very important service — that of 
rendering the railroad useless to the enemy after they had regained possession 
of it. At length, on the 28th of December, the regiment reached La Grange, 
Tenn., where it w^ent into camp 'and enjoyed a season of comparative rest for 
the remainder of the winter. Detachments were occasionally sent out in pursuit 
of roving bands of the enemy, and for the purpose of guarding forage trains, but, 
beyond a few encounters with the enemy by these detachments, the regiment 
was not called upon for any movement in which all its oflScers and men were 
to participate until the commencement of active operations by the entire army 
in the early spring of 1863. 

On the 10th of March, 1863, Colonel Hatch, with his regiment, left camp 
at La Grange, and by a rapid march proceeded to Waterford, Miss., and, in 
obedience to orders, burned the railroad bridge which spanned the Tallahatchie 
River near that point, and also destroyed a quantity of supplies for the rebel 
army which he found there. He then by a skillful movement avoided com- 
ing into 'contact with a superior force which had been sent against him, and 
returned to his camp at La Grange, the men and officers of the regiment having 
been almost constantly in the saddle for three days and two nights. The 
regiment, either as a whole or in detachments, was actively engaged during the 
remainder of March and the first half of April in active operations against 
^he enemy, preventing concentration of the rebel forces, and, in the various 
minor engagements which ensued, capturing a considerable number of pris- 
oners, horses and other property; but, while inflicting these damages upon the 
rebels, the regiment sustained — only in less degree — the inevitable casualties 
which such operations involved.

224 HISTORICAL SKETCH 



On the ITth of April, 1863, the Second Iowa Cavalry, then comprising a 
part of the cavalry brigade under the command of the intrepid Colonel Grier- 
son again left its 'camp at La Grange and started upon what proved to be one 
of the most remarkable cavalry expeditions of the war. On the second day 
out, in obedience to orders from Colonel Grierson, Colonel Hatch led the Second 
Iowa against a force of the enemy which threatened to delay the advance of 
the main column. In his oflftcial report of the engagement which ensued, Col- 
onel Hatch clearly demonstrates the fact that, by his thus having distracted the 
attention of the enemy and held it for thirty-six hours, he enabled Colonel Grier- 
son to get so far beyond the main force of rebels that he could not be overtaken, 
thus enabling that gallant officer to make a complete success of his expedition. 
The enemy had mistaken the Second Iowa Cavalry, under Colonel Hatch, for 
the main force, and the skill with which that delusion was" effected, together 
with the tremendous risk and hazard to which his relatively small command 
was exposed, is graphically described in the official report of Colonel Hatch, 
in which he gives the details of his encounter with the superior force of the 
enemy at the town of Palo Alto.'-' In this desperate encounter one company 
of the Second Cavalry was separated from the regiment, but. although com- 
pletely surrounded, refused to surrender and was subsequently released from 
its perilous situation by an impetuous charge, led by Colonel Hatch, in which 
the ranks of the enemy were broken. After making that gallant charge and 
rescuing the company, the regiment slowly retreated, fighting by the rear, 
the enemy constantly following, until, four days later, the pursuit was aban- 
doned and the regiment joined the other Union troops at its old camp near La 
Grange. The losses of the enemy greatly t»xceeded those sustained by the 
regiment on the retreat. Colonel Hatch having availed himself of every advantage 
of position to keep his men as well covered as possible, and, fighting always 
on the defensive, with repeating arms, was able to overcome the disparity 
of numbers. The regiment had. however, expended nearly all its ammunition 
at the time the enemy drew off from the pursuit. The General commanding 
accorded to Colonel Hatch and his regiment the credit of having made possible 
the success of Colonel Grierson's great cavalry raid, which terminated at Baton 
Rouge on May 2d, with such important results. The conclusion of his official 
report, written before it was known that Colonel Grierson had safely reached 
his destination, plainly indicates that Colonel Hatch fully appreciated the im- 
portance of having diverted the attention of the enemy from the main ob- 
ject of the expedition. He says: "The fight at Palo Alto, diverting the enemy 
from Colonel Grierson, has undoubtedly given him thirty-six hours start." 

The compiler is admonished that more than half the space he can de- 
vote to this historical sketch has already been exhausted; he will, therefore, 
be compelled to condense even more closely the account of the operations 
of the regiment for the remainder of its period of service. Reference to offi- 
cial reports for details must, therefore, be more frequently made than in the 
preceding pages. 

Soon after his return to La Grange, Colonel Hatch was placed in com- 
mand of a brigade, and the command of the regiment again devolved upon 
Major Coon. This command marched southward to Okolona without meeting 
with much opposition, the object of the expedition being mainly the capture 
of horses and mules for the use of the cavalry and the transportation trains 
of the army. In this it was very successful, returning on the 5th of May with 
over .300 animals and, a few days later, making a raid extending eightv miles 
in another direction, with similar results. On the latter expedition the brigade 
encountered a rebel force under its old antagonist. General Chalmers, who.

after a brief engagement, was defeated with a much greater loss than that 
sustained by the brigade. From about the middle of May until the 23d of 
August. 1863, the headquarters of the regiment and brigade were at La Grange, 
but during that time the regiment, either as a whole or by detachments, en- 
gaged in a number of important operations, which may be summarized as fol- 
lows: The raid southwest from La Grange to Panola, a distance of one 
hundred miles, which was made for the purpose of retaliation for the firing 
upon and destruction of federal transports on the Mississippi Rive'* and the 
killing, in at least one instance, of women and children. The reprisals were 
heavy. In the vicinity where the depredations had been committed, much prop- 
erty was destroyed, and 1,000 horses and mules were captured and brought 
back to the camp at La Grange^ The next expedition was directed against 
the cavalry command of the rebel General Forrest, which at that time occu- 
pied the town of Jackson, Tenn. Colonel Hatch marched w-ith his brigade 
against this force on the 12th of July. In the engagement which ensued the 
Second Iowa was conspicuous for its gallantry, under its capable leader. Major 
Coon.^' Among the casualties in this engagement was Lieutenant John K. 
Humphrey of the Second Iowa, severely w^ounded. In his oflBcial report of 
this engagement" Colonel Hatch gives the loss of the enemy as follows: 4 
Captains. 3 Lieutenants and 31 men killed, and not less than 150 wounded, 
while the total loss in his own command was but 16. The superior quality 
of the arms of his men, and the fact that the heavy loss upon the enemy was 
inflicted while they were in full retreat, accounts for the great disparity in the 
casualties. On the 13th of August, Major Coon, with two hundred men of the 
Second Iowa Cavalry and detachments from other regiments of the brigade, 
making in all a force of five hundred men, well mounted and equipped, started 
from La Grange under orders from Colonel Hatch to proceed south to Grenada, 
Miss..- and destroy a large amount of railroad rolling stock and other property 
which the rebel government had accumulated at that point for the use of its 
army. The object of the expedition was successfully accomplished. The prop- 
erty destroyed consisted of two large depots, sixty locomotives, five hundred 
cars, machine shops and flouring mills, and a large number of army w^agons. 
This was a serious loss to the rebel army and yent far towards counteracting 
tho effect of the rebel General Van Dorn's raid upon Holly Springs and his 
destruction of the supplies for the Union army at that place. Major Coon 
returned with his detachment to La Grange August 23d, after an absence of 
eleven days. 

The regiment with its brigade now marched to the city of Memphis, where 
it went into camp August 27, 1863, remaining there until November 1st, on 
which date, under command of Lieutenant Colonel Hepburn, it marched to Col- 
lierville to reinforce the troops at that place. The rebel General Chalmers was 
then approaching Collierville with a large force and the regiment was just 
in time to aid in repelling his attack. After a hard-fought engagement the 
enemy was driven from the field. They succeeded in carrying off most of their 
wounded, but left their dead, forty-one in number, and fifty captured, among 
whom were one Brigadier General and eight others who were commissioned 
oflBcers. The loss on the Union side in this engagement was thirty-seven. 
Among the wounded was Captain Charles C. Horton, of the Second Iowa Cav- 
alry. Upon its return from the pursuit of the enemy the regiment went into 
camp at Collierville, remaining there until November 26, 1863, on which date

it marched to CoAington, in West Tennessee, and, upon arriving there, went 
into camp. From this point scouting parties were sent out to watch the 
movements of a large force of the enemy under the command of the noted 
rebel General S. D. Lee, which was reported to be advancing from Oxford. On 
the 1st of December Colonel Hatch moved from Covington with his brigade and, 
marching rapidly, reached Moscow, on the Memphis and Charleston Railroad, 
just in time to reinforce the small garrison at that place and to repulse the 
enemy under General Lee, after a hard-fought engagement, in which Colonel 
Hatch was very severely wounded, the ball passing through his right lung 
and entirely through his body. He refused to leave the field, however, and 
continued to direct the movements of his troops until the enemy had been de- 
feated and were in full retreat, leaving sixty of their number dead upon the 
field, but succeeding in removing their wounded. The loss in Colonel Hatch's 
command was eighty-one — killed, wounded and micsing. The regiment now 
returned to its former camp at Collierville. 

On December 22, 1863, the regiment, with Captain Graves in command, 
(Major Coon having succeeded Colonel Hatch in command of the brigade,) left 
its camp and, with all the cavalry which could be hastily concentrated for 
that purpose, went in pursuit of the noted rebel General Forrest, who, with 
about 3,000 men, had again boldly invaded Tennessee and was engaged in 
enforcing a merciless conscription of troops for the rebel army. Notwithstand- 
ing the activity of the pursuit, the daring rebel leader succeeded in getting 
safely out of the State with a very large number of unarmed conscripts, who 
were subsequently armed and assigned to the depleted ranks of regiments in 
the rebel army. Returning from the pursuit of Forrest, the regiment reached its 
encampment at Collierville December 31, 1863. 

On January 2, 1864, the regiment left its camp at Collierville and started 
for Memphis, where it arrived on the 4th and went into camp. The men suf- 
fered greatly at this time, both upon the march and in camp, the weather being 
extremely cold for that latitude. A large number of recruits joined the regi- 
ment and were mustered into the service at Memphis, making its aggregate 
strength greater than it had been at any time since the fall of 1862. During 
the remainder of the month the recruits were drilled and instructed fn the 
duties of the cavalry soldier and became quite proficient before the regiment 
again took the field, but they had yet to learn their most important lessons 
and the stern realities of the soldier's life in time of war. The officers and 
men of the regiment felt a just pride in the splendid record of their gallant 
Colonel, who was now separated from them on account of his severe wound. 
They also entertained the highest regard for General Grierson, who had dem- 
onstrated his great ability as a cavalry leader. The warmest feeling of per- 
sonal friendship existed between these two officers. It was through the strong 
personal endorsement of General Grierson that the too long delayed promotion 
of Colonel Hatch was finally secured, and it is deemed proper and fitting to \ 
here insert the evidence of appreciation shown by the General in his letter to 
the Secretary of War.

an efficient and skillful officer, and has rendered invaluable services to the country. 
I consider his promotion not only due to liimself but to the best interests of the 
service. He is now slowly recovering from a wound through his lungs, received in a 
recent engagement at Moscow, Tenn. 

Most respectfully, your obedient servant, 
B. H. Grierson, Brigadier General, 

Commanding Cavalry Division, 

Sixteenth Army Corps}'' 

On the 5th of February, 1864, the regiment again broke camp and marched 
to Germantown, where a large force of cavalry, under command of Generals 
W. S. Smith and B. H.- Grierson, had been concentrated for the purpose of 
co-operating with General William T. Sherman, who had then just started from 
Vicksburg on his famous Meridian Expedition. This cavalry force was under 
orders to join Sherman at IMeridian. The rebel General Forrest had again suc- 
ceeded in getting together a large force of cavalry and, by a series of skillful 
maneuvers and well-planned attacks, managed to delay the advance of the 
Union cavalry until General Sherman, — who had waited for some time at Mer- 
idian for this cavalry force to join him— had started and was well on his way 
towards Vicksburg. This enabled Forrest to receive reinforcements from the 
rebel cavalry, which had ineffectually opposed Sherman's advance, and it at 
once b;X'ame necessary for Smith and Grierson to retreat to Germantown or Mem- 
phis. The movements and engagements of this cavalry division, both upon the 
advance and retreat, are well described in the "History of the Second Iowa Cav- 
alry," published soon after the close of the war, when all the events, so graphi- 
cally narrated, were fresh in the mind of the writer, and which are found to be 
in substantial accord with the official reports.'" 

After giving an account of the advance movement and the engagement in 
which the Second Iowa was most conspicuous, and in which Lieutenant H. C. 
Dwire was killed, and Major Coon, Captains Graves, Queal and Horton and 
Lieutenant Bandy displayed great gallantry in directing the charge against 
the enemy, (the engagement ending with the defeat of the rebels and the 
capture of West Point,) he proceeds to describe the retrograde movement. At 
the beginning of the retreat. Major Coon was directed to take the Second Iowa 
and a battalion of the Sixth Illinois and hold the enemy in check until the 
large transportation train could get safely under way. The rebel General 
Forrest made a desperate attack upon this rear, guard for the purpose of cap- 
turing the train. Instead of falling back before this force. Major Coon re- 
quested the brigade commander. Lieutenant Colonel Hepburn, of his own regi- 
ment, to allow him to make a standing fight and to send him reinforcements. 
Hepburn's reply to this appeal was that the orders of General Stnith must 
bo obeyed, and the retreat continued. There was nothing left but for the 
rear guard to continue to slowly retire, protecting both its front and flanks, 
as best it could, against the persistent attacks of the enemy. The battalions, 
under the command of Captains Queal and Horton, dismounted and fought 
from behind trees with their Colt's revolving rifles, which inflicted very heavy 
damage upon the enemy. Finally the commanding General, realizing the des- 
perate situation in which his rear guard was placed, sent back a brigade to 
their support. While these fresh troops at once engaged the enemy at the 
front, Major Coons command was temporarily held in reserve, but still con- 
stituted a portion of the rear guard. The Second Iowa had left fifty of its

brave men upon the field, the heaviest loss it had ever sustained in any en- 
gagement up to that time. The fight did not terminate until 10 o'clock P. M., 
and the retreat continued until 2 o'clock A. M., when the troops were allowed a 
brief rest, the retreat being resumed at daylight. General Smith, being very 
ill, now relinquished the command to General Grierson, and that officer, by 
the exercise of great skill and energy, conducted the retreat to Germantown. 
The day he assumed command the situation looked" very desperate. Forrest 
repeatedly renewed his attacks on the rear and flanks of the retreating army, 
captured part of its artillery and, at one time, threatened the capture of the 
entire command. It was only by the most determined bravery and persistent 
fighting that Grierson finally arrived within reach of Infantry reinforcements, 
and the daring rebel leader abandoned the pursuit. The officers and men of 
the Second Iowa Cavalry were almost constantly in the saddle for sixty hours 
and, for the greater part of that time, engaged in action. Upon reaching Ger- 
mantown both men and horses had reached the point of extreme exhaustion. 
The regiment arrived at its camp on the 26th of February, having been absent 
on the expedition sixteen days. 

After resting a short time, the regiment marched to Memphis and went 
into camp there. Major Coon and General Grierson now made a special effort 
to induce the men to re-enlist for another term of three years, or during the 
war. These officers were very popular with the regiment, and their efforts re- 
sulted in the re-enlistment of a sufficient number of men to entitle the regiment 
to the designation of a veteran organization. The re-enlisted men were again 
mustered into the service on the 28th of !\Iarch, 1864, and, from that date, the 
regiment had the new title of Second Iowa Veteran Cavalry Volunteers. The ag- 
gregate strength of the regiment at this time was 1,088, of which number 45 
were commissioned officers, 360 re-enlisted veterans, and 683 non-veterans and 
recruits. The re-enlisted men were granted a furlough of thirty days, to begin 
from the time they arrived at Davenport, Iowa. They embarked on steamer at 
Memphis, April 7, 1864. Upon reaching Davenport they were accorded an en- 
thusiastic reception. They then received their furloughs and departed for 
their respective homes. On the 15th of May they reassembled at Davenport 
and, on the 17th, departed for St. Louis. In the meantime Colonel Hatch had 
been promoted to Brigadier General, Major Coon succeeding him as Colonel of 
the regiment and Captains Horton, Schnitger and Moore had become Battalion 
Majors. At St. Louis the veterans were supplied with horses and then pro- 
ceeded to Memphis, where they arrived on the 29th of May and rejoined the 
non-veterans and recruits, who had, in the meantime, been preforming garrison 
duty at Fort Pickering, under command of Lieutenant Colonel Hepburn. Here 
the regiment was supplied with the latest improved arms, Spencers' seven- 
shooting carbines, at that time considered the most effective cavalry arm in the 
service. 

Another active and aggressive campaign was now about to begin. The 
rebel General Forrest had captured Fort Pillow and won a victory over the 
troops commanded by General Sturgis. Emboldened by these successes, For- 
rest had established his headquarters at Tupelo, Miss., where he was daily

from the day he became its commander to the close of the year 1864." Ap- 
pended to these reports are the lists of casualties sustained during the period 
embraced, showing how the regiment had fought and suffered during the 
campaign. The principal engagements in which the regiment took part, and 
included in Major Horton's reports, are here given in the order in which they 
occurred: Tupelo, Miss., Ripley, Miss., Pontotoc, Miss., Oxford, Miss., Hurricane 
Creek, Miss., Shoal Creek, Ala., Aberdeen, Ala., Butler Creek, Ala., Lawrence- 
burg, Tenn., Campbellville, Tenn., Linville, Tenn., Mount Carmel, Tenn., 
and near Franklin, Tenn. In addition to these engagements there were 
many skirmishes by detachments and individual encounters with the enemy 
by the scouts. During the greater part of this time the former Colonel 
of the regiment — General Hatch— was in command of the cavalry division to 
which the regiment and its brigade belonged. This was a matter of mutual 
satisfaction to the General and to the officers and men of his old regiment. 
They were renewing the contest with their old enemy, the rebel General 
Forrest and his forces, with whom they had so often met in conflict before. 
These two Generals had learned each other's methods of attack and defense, 
and. in the dreadful game of war in which they were engaged, it became a 
question of skill and ability on the part of these great cavalry leaders as to 
which should gain the advantage. In so far as the element of bravery and 
daring of the leaders and their followers was concerned, it may be said that 
the one equaled the other. They were all American soldiers, and, as a rule, 
displayed the same courage on the battlefield. Major Horton makes special 
mention of the following officers of his regiment during the campaign, — Bat- 
talion Majors Schnitger and Moore, Captains Stiles, Bandy, Goodrich and Fos- 
ter, Lieutenants Watson, Riftnple, Budd and Griffith. While the Major es- 
pecially commended these officers for gallantry and coolness in action, he also 
commends all the officers and men of his regiment, and states that he finds 
it hard to mention the conspicuous acts of bravery of some wathout doing in- 
justice to others. The distance marched on this campaign was nearly 600 
miles. The loss of the regiment, from September 30, 1864 to January 1, 1865, 
was 12 killed, 3 mortally wounded, 44 wounded and 8 captured by the enemy. 
Two of the men captured were severely wounded before they surrendered. Two 
others, who were captured, escaped and returned to the regiment on the 28th 
of December, 1864, leaving the net loss of the regiment 6-5. The loss of the 
cavalry division during the same period was 600, that of the Second Iowa 
being considerably above the average. 

On December 2, 1864, the regiment, with its brigade and division, fell 
back to Nashville, crossed the Cumberland River and went into camp at Edge- 
field, to which place the tents and knapsacks had been forwarded. The men 
were very glad to again have these equipments, having been deprived of them 
since leaving their camp at White's Station in September. In the meantime 
they had bivouacked in the open field, with no protection save that afforded 
by the army blanket. The weather had now become intensely cold and the 
men suffered very greatly. It was evident that another desperate struggle was 
now impending and could not long be delayed. The opposing armies of Gen- 
erals Thomas and Hood were constantly employed in fortifying the positions 
they occupied, that of Thomas being along a chain of hills encircling the city 
of Nashville, and that of Hood along another chain of hills from one to four 
miles distant from that city. General Thomas, after making every preparation 
to meet the threatenci attack, finally determined to assume the offensive, and 
made the necessary disposition of his troops for the purpose of assaulting the 
enemy along the entire line of his works. The cavalry division, commanded

by General Hatch, was ordered to recross the Cumberland River on the 12th 
of December, and was assigned to a position on the right of General A. J. 
Smith's Corps. Everything being in readiness, the advance was ordered on the 
morning of December 15, 1864, and the result of the tremendous struggle which 
ensued went far towards the complete overthrow of the so-called Confederate 
Government and the restoration of peace. It was the greatest battle in which the 
Second Iowa Cavalry participated and the one in which the regiment won its 
highest honors. In this battle Colonel Coon commanded the brigade, while Lieu- 
tenant Colonel Horton (recently promoted from INIajor) commanded the regi- 
ment, assisted by Major Schnitger and Captains Foster and Bandy, his tfat- 
talion commanders. The compiler of this sketch feels that he is justified in 
trespassing somewhat on the limits assigned him, in quoting from the official 
report of Lieutenant Colonel Horton, to such an extent at least as to show the 
most conspicuous features of the service performed by his regiment in this 
great battle. It will be noted that the regiment fought mainly dismounted on 
the first day and part of the second day of the battle. 

Headquarters Second Iowa Cavalry, Veteran Volunteers^ 
Gravelly Springs, Jan. 2, 1865. 
General: I have the honor to nnake the following report of the operations of the 
Second Iowa Cavalry since the 15th of December, 1864, embracing the two days' battle 
near Nashville, and the subsequent pursuit of the rebel General Hood. In obedience 
to orders from brigade headquarters, moved from camp on the morning of the 15th of 
December, 1864, at eight o'clock, men dismounted- and horses following in the rear. 
After marching one mile, our brigade — the Second of the Fifth Division, Cavalry Corps 
— took position on the right of General A. J. Smith's Corps of Infantry, the Sixth and 
Ninth Illinois Cavalry on my left, the Seventh Illinois Cavalry on my right. Com- 
plying with the movements of the commands, my lefj moved forward, swinging the 
while to the left, the enemy's skirmish line falling back steadily before our advance. 
Their main line was found some four mile's from town, occupying formidable works on 
a commanding hill. By continually swinging to the left our brigade struck their left 
flank. The division battery ("I" of the Second Illinois) now galloped into position in 
an open field and opened on the works, evidently much to their annoyance, as the guns 
of both forts were immediately turned upon the battery and my regiment, which had 
been formed to the left and rear as support. Remained lying in this position, exposed 
to a galling fire from both forts for nearly an hour, losing two men killed and one 
wounded, when I received orders to move forward and join in an assault upon the first 
fort. The regiment moved steadily forward under a severe fire until within three 
hundred yards of the works, when the order to "Charge and take that fort !" from 
General Hatch rang along the line. With a shout the men sprang forward, and with 
a shout the fort was carried. Company G. Lieutenant Budd commanding, having been 
thrown out as skirmishers, were nearest the works, and consequently the first to 
enter. One man was knocked down by a blow from a musket just as he was scaling 
the works. One of General Smith's batteries shelled the fort after it was captured, 
six shells bursting in and over it after we had entered. Captured here four brass 
Napoleons and sixty prisoners. Thirty killed and wounded rebels were found lying in 
the fort. Leaving a guard with the guns, I pressed forward after the retreating enemy, 
capturing many prisoners. Orders were now received form Colonel Coon to move by 
the right flank and charge the second fort, situated some seven hundred yards to our 
right on a conical hill. The men were so eager in the pursuit of the fugitives from the 
first fort that I was able to rally only two hundred of them ; with these I joined tne 
brigade in the assault. The fort was defended with a stubbornness and gallantry 
seldom surpassed— the enemy only ceasing to use their artillerj' after the works were 
scaled. A short but desperate hand-to-hand struggle ensued after the works were 
entered. My colors, borne by the gallant Sergeant Hartman. Company F, were the 
first to fioat from the fort. The Sergeant fell mortally wounded while in the act of 
plantmg the colors on one of the guns. Seizing my hand as I bent over him. he ex- 
claimed, "Major, tell my friends I died doing my duty." In this fort were captured 
two guns, with caissons; one battery wagon, and nearly one hundred prisoners. Not- 
withstanding my colors were the first to enter the works, it would be unjust to claim 



SECOND CAVALRY 231 



the guns or prisoners as my particular prize, as the different regiments of the brigade 
entered so nearly at the same time. Lieutenants Watson and Griffith, Companies I 
and D, who, not having heard the order to rally in time to join in the assault on the 
fort, moved by the right and charged on our left flank, attacking and repulsing a 
force of rebels who were endeavoring to re-enforce the fort, now reported with some 
sixty prisoners each. Quartermaster Sergeant Beeson, with my bugler, Anderson, and 
(two mounted orderlies (Truesdale and Winn) charged with the saber, killing and 
wounding several and taking some seventy prisoners. Number of prisoners captured 
during the day, two hundred and fifty. Regiment lost, while supporting the battery 
and charging the two forts, six men killed, and two commissioned officers and eighteen 
men wounded. . . . Moved again at daylight. . . . Found the enemy in strong 
force, occupying a line of hills on "Little Harpeth," four miles south of Franklin. 
General Hatch moved his division to the front, formed on the right of General Ham- 
mond. Second Iowa on the extreme right. The line moved at a walk for some three 
hundred yards, then the trot, and finally the charge was sounded. At the signal, all 
sprang forward ; but the center found it impossible to carry the position on account of 
the steep and rocky hill-side. They halted here, dismounted, and engaged the enemy 
on foot. Not receiving the order to halt, and having better ground in front, I pressed 
forward, charged up the hill and through a thick wood, until we reached the enemy's 
left and rear, who now opened on me with grape and canister from the batteries. 
Wheeling thd regiment to the left, I ordered the charge upon the battery to our left, 
but the horses were poor and so much blown that they could only raise a slow trot, 
perceiving which, the enemy charged us in turn, but were handsomely repulsed with the 
carbines. 

A strong force of rebels were now reported passing through the gap between my 
regiment and the balance of the brigade. The fact that the day was dark and rainy, 
and that they wore rubber ponchos, and were many of them dressed in blue, had led 
my men to believe them to be our own troops, so they were nearly in the rear of the 
Third Battalion before the mistake was discovered. Company K, Sergeant John Coulter 
commanding, were nearly surrounded, and were compelled to cut their way out with 
the saber. Sergeant Coulter, with Corporal Heck and privates Black and Anderson 
(same company), charged the rebel color guard, and, after a desperate hand-to-hand 
struggle, in which Heck and Black were killed, and Coulter and Anderson badly 
wounded, the colors of Rosse's Brigade were captured and borne triumphantly off by 
the Sergeant. Eight dead rebels, lying within the space of a few yards, attest the 
desperate nature of the conflict. After a few moments' close fighting, in which the 
saber and butts of guns were freely used, the rebels fell back. The regiment being 
somewhat disorganized, I withdrew from the range of the artillery to reform and com- 
municate witli the brigade. Although I found the enemy too strong to drive, I held 
my ground and finally compelled them to vacate their position on the hill. General 
Hatch now pressed tliem on the pike, capturing three pieces of artillery. My loss 
during the engagement was seven killed, eight wounded and thirteen captured. Several 
others were captured, but made their escape, in some instances returning with their 
guards as prisoners. Regiment captured in all some fifty prisoners. ... Of the 
conduct of the officers and men, I can only speak in terms of highest commendation. 
Where every soldier (officers and men) deserves special mention, it is hard to dis- 
criminate. I will only make special mention of Lieutenant Sydenham, Regimental 
Adjutant, and my battalion commanders, Major Schnitger and Captains Foster and 
Bandy, to whom I am greatly indebted for the efficient, prompt and gallant manner in 
which all my orders were executed. Appended is the loss sustained by the regiment 
during the campaign, sixteen killed, four officers and twenty-nine men wounded ; thir- 
teen prisoners.

232 HISTORICAL SKETCH 



That portion of Lieutenant Colonel Horton's report which has been omitted 
describes in detail the operations of the regiment while in pursuit of Gen- 
eral Hood's army, and embraces the dates from December 17th to 26th, in- 

clusivB 

On December 27th a detachment of five hundred of the most effective 
men and horses in the brigade, of which two hundred were chosen from the 
Second Iowa was ordered to proceed in advance of the cavalry division and 
follow Hood's retreating army to the Tennessee River. This detachment pressed 
so closely upon the enemy's rear guard as to compel the abandonment of a 
large number of ambulances and wagons. Captain Bandy and Lieutenant Ham- 
ilton, with fifty men of the Second Iowa, gave the parting shots that hastened 
the retreat of the last of the enemy across the river on the evening of Decem- 
ber 28, 1864. The regiment had thus been conspicuous in all the operations 
against Hood's army from the commencement of the battle of Nashville until 
that army was almost destroyed and all that remained of it was in full re- 
treat. Among all the splendid regiments which composed the cavalry division 
commanded by that prince among leaders. General Edward Hatch, there was 
none which gained greater honor and distinction than the Second Iowa Cav- 
alry. The Second Brigade of the division to which the regiment belonged, and^ 
which was commanded by its own ColoneP during the entire campaign, had 
to its credit the capture of one General, two Majors, two Captains, six Lieuten- 
ants and 1,175 enlisted men of the rebel army, also 4 stands of colors, 1.315 
muskets, 15 pieces of artillery, 21 wagons and 7 ambulances. 

The regiment, with its brigade and division, upon returning from the 
pursuit of Hood's army, arrived at Eastport, Miss., January 11, 1865, and went 
into winter quarters at that place. 

On the 19th of February, Major Schnitger, with four hundred men from 
the Second Iowa and Ninth Illinois Cavalry, conducted a successful expedition 
against a force of cavalry under command of the rebel General Roddy, re- 
turning to camp with a large number of prisoners, most of whom were found 
hiding in the woods, they having deserted the rebel commander, who continued 
to retreat with the remainder of his force and made good his escape. During 
the remainder of the winter the regiment was not called upon for active duty, 
as the war was practically ended. During the spring and summer of 1S65, 
the operations of the regiment extended over a considerable territory in the 
northern sections of Alabama and :Mississippi, but these operations were more 
in the nature of a pacific than hostile character, the real necessity for the re- 
tention of troops in the Southern States during this period being for the pur- 
pose of maintaining order, and assisting in the readjustment of the functions 
of civil government. 

Upon the disbandment of the brigade which he had so long commanded. 
Colonel Coon issued the following order:

Veteran Companions: This day the identity of the old Second Brigade is lost, 
and its unflinching battle line, that covered our retiring forces at West Point and 
Prairie Station, that saved a disorganized command at Okolona, that raised the well 
earned cry of victory at Hurricane Creek and Tupelo, that presented its unbroken 
front to Hood's advancing hosts at Shoal Creek. Mt. Carmel, Linville, Lawrenceburg 
Pike and Franklin, and that taught the world a new lesson in cavalrv warfare when It 
waved its victorious battle flag on the captured redoubts before Nashville; that un- 
wavering battle scarred line has at last by order of your Department Commander been 

and mS'tori^\,?^ci^^ •■^- Coon received the rank of Brevet Brigadier General, for gallant 
and meritorious services during this campaign.

broken, and in parting I feel proud in giving expression to tlie heartfelt God speed 
and sincere well wishes mutually exchanged by the offlcers and men of the brigade. 
You have endured storms, hunger, fatigue and disaster and enjoyed sunshine and 
plenty, and many a victorious march together. Under each other's faithful watch, you 
have slept without fear in many a dangerous bivouac. Shoulder to shoulder you have 
stood the battle tide of many a sanguinary field, and the greatest good I can wish for 
you is that j^our future happiness and prosperity may be as great and unremitting as 
your past patriotism, fidelity and courage, while better cause for honest pride I shall 
never have than this : I once commanded the Second Brigade. 
Offlcers, Soldiers and Comrades, Farewell. 

By order of 

Datus E. Coon, 
Brevet Brigadier General. 
John H. Avery, 

Capt. and A. A. A. G.** 

It should be here stated that, as their original terms of service had ex- 
pired, those who had not re-enlisted had been mustered out of the service and 
returned to their homes. Those men had, by virtue of their three years' faithful 
service, become veterans in fact though not in name, the title having been offi- 
cially bestowed upon their comrades who chose to remain until the close of 
the war. No criticism could, however, be justly made upon the action of those 
men who had honorably fulfilled the obligation they had taken upon themselves 
at the beginning of the war, and they returned to their homes with the highest 
regard of their comrades who remained. 

Early in the month of September, the Veteran Second Iowa Cavalry was 
ordered to proceed to Selma. Ala., at which place, on the 19th day of Sep- 
tember, 1865, it was mustered out of the service of the United States. It was 
then provided with transportation to Davenport, Iowa, and, upon arriving there, 
was disbanded, and the officers and men returned to their respective homes. 

Major General A. J. Smith, in concluding his farewell address to the troops 
he had so long commanded, used the following words of praise and admonition: 
"Your military history is without blot or stain. With this record of your 
service you can return to your respective homes, with the consciousness that 
you have performed your full duty, won the respect and admiration of your 
commanders, and well deserved the confidence and trust of the country that 
in her hour of danger placed you in ranks and trusted to you her battles. Still 
continue to merit that confidence and trust, by becoming as good citizens as 
you have been soldiers. Remember that for a Republican government the main 
requisite is enlightened, moral and industrious citizens. Unless you become 
such the results of your entire service are lost to you. Let the memory of 
what you have endured endear to you every foot of American soil. Having 
asserted the supremacy of the General Government in arms, assist, now, in 
creating for it a glorious future among nations." 

The survivors of the Second Iowa Cavalry have, as citizens, as faithfully 
observed this parting injunction of their old commander as they obeyed his 
orders when fighting for the preservation of a united country. Let those who 
come after them cherish their memory and emulate their patriotic example 
in time of peace, and, if need be, in war.
