HISTORICAL SKETCH
FIRST BATTERY IOWA LIGHT ARTILLERY
Under the proclamation of President Lincoln, bearing date May 3, 1861, Governor Kirkwood
called for the enlistment of a company, to be designated as the First Battery Iowa Light Artillery
The organization of the company was completed, and it was ordered into quarters at Burlington,
Iowa, on July 26, 1861, and was there mustered into the service of the United States, August 17,
1861, by Captain Alexander Chambers of the Regular Army. At the date of its muster into the
service, the company numbered one hundred sixteen men rank and file.
1 Report of Adjutant General of Iowa, 1863, Vol. 2, pages 665 to 668 inclusive. Original Roster
of the Company.
The company remained at its rendezvous in Burlington until early in December, 1861, when
it was ordered to proceed to Benton Barracks, near St. Louis, Mo. It there received its armament,
consisting of six guns, with their caissons, together with the other necessary equipment for a full
company of artillery. During the time the company remained in Benton Barracks, its officers and
men were earnestly engaged in learning how to handle the guns, and all the duties to be
performed by artillery soldiers, and, try the time they were called upon to take the field against
the enemy, had gained a fair degree of proficiency in drill. On January 8, 1862, Captain Fletcher
was ordered to return to his regiment, (the First United States Infantry,) which necessitated his
resignation as Captain of the battery, and, pending the filling of the vacancy, the Senior First
Lieutenant, Virgil J. David, became its commanding officer. On January 15, 1862, Lieutenant
Junius A. Jones was promoted and commissioned Captain. In the meantime, the battery had been
ordered to Rolla, Mo., and was conveyed to that place by rail. On January 23, 1862, the battery
took up the line of march with the army commanded by General Curtis, to Cross Hollow, Ark.
The battery had its first experience in conflict with the enemy at the battle of Pea Ridge, Ark., on
the 7th and 8th of March, 1862, where it rendered most efficient and conspicuous service, as
shown by the official reports of the regimental, brigade and division commanders, particularly
that of Colonel Dodge, under whose personal direction the First Iowa Battery was assigned to
most of the different positions it occupied during the battle. The official report of Captain Jones
is herewith quoted in full, as follows:
CAMP NEAR ELKHORN TAVERN, March 9, 1862.
SIR: In accordance with my duty, I beg leave to report that, on the morning of the 7th instant,
I proceeded to your camp with my battery, and, by your order, sent Lieutenant David, with the
first section, to the head of the column. upon arriving at the Elkhorn Tavern, by order of Colonel
Carr, commanding division, I sent Lieutenant Gambell, with the left section, some two hundred
yards farther north, on the Springfield road, to take position against the rebels, and I proceeded
on the road to the right and easterly from the Tavern some eight hundred yards, to take position
against the same force. Just as I was ready to go Into action, the firing of the right section having
ceased, and a messenger arriving telling me Lieutenant David had advanced, I limbered up and
moved to join the left section, which commenced action as I reached the Elkhorn Tavern. I
2
immediately Joined Lieutenant Gambell, and took position on his right and commenced firing on
the rebel batteries forthwith. I found Lieutenant Gambell actively engaged, the rebel guns having
him in perfect range of grape, shell and shrapnel. The fire of the rebels was galling in the
extreme. Just as I delivered my second round, Reese Parkhurst, acting as No. 3, was killed, a
cannon ball taking off his left leg, and another shot striking him in the head. I then had the
prolonges fixed to fire retiring when necessary. Shortly after this event, one of my caissons was
exploded by a shot from the rebels, and another was lost to me by a runaway team running into
the caisson team, which took fright and ran away, capsizing the caisson down a slope, breaking
the pole and otherwise disabling it. The team escaped. Two of the horses and two of my
ammunition chests and contents were subsequently recovered by Lieutenant David. By this time
the fire of the rebel batteries began to tell on my men. Kirk W. Henry was disabled by a piece of
shell striking him in the mouth; Sergeant H. R. Horr was severely wounded by a ball striking him
in the groin; W. F. Conner was wounded in the hand; D. J. Duvall was struck over the eye with a
piece of shell and disabled; Thomas Brown was wounded in the right side by a piece of shell; I.
B. Nelson was wounded in the right hand and back Clark Woodmansee was wounded in the right
shoulder; Samuel Black was wounded in the ankle; James Molesworth was wounded in the hip,
and John Easton (detailed from Fourth Iowa Infantry) was wounded in the right arm. After these
casualties, the limber or a second caisson was exploded by a shot from the rebel batteries,
burning severely E. Skivinkl, the driver of the wheel team. About this time Lieutenant Gambell
was disabled by a grape shot passing through his left leg above the knee between the bone and
tendons. My ammunition becoming exhausted, I began to fire retiring. The second piece had
nearly reached the road when I was hit by a spent round shot below the groin on the left leg,
which compelled me to retire from the field, being unable to sit on my horse. When I left the
scene of action the last piece was in the act of retiring. We were keeping up the fire, waiting to
be relieved by the Dubuque battery. Lieutenant Williams kept the field with the last piece, and
afterwards collected the left and center sections and drew them up in battery in a field eastward
and southward of the tavern, where they were afterwards joined by Lieutenant David with the
right section, and he, being the senior officer, took command. After I retired, Gustavis
Gustavison—Number 3 of the piece remaining in action—had his right leg shot out by a solid
shot, and William Selden—number 6 of the same piece— was wounded severely by the
fragment of a shell. Gustavison has since died from the shock and amputation. For the labors of
the right section and the subsequent service of the battery I refer you to the report of Lieutenant
David. 2 I should have noted that, to keep the ammunition of the capsized caisson from falling
into the hands of the rebels, we exploded it. In conclusion, I am pleased to state that, with the
exception of Lieutenant Gambell and William Selden, the wounded will be ready for duty in a
short time.
Respectfully submitted,
JUNIUS A. JONES,
Captain First Iowa Battery.
COLONEL GRENVILLE M. DODGE, Commanding Brigade 3
The division commander, Colonel E. A. Carr, in his official report makes mention of the
service rendered by the First Iowa Battery on the second day of the battle, as follows:
My division, being on the right, did not come Into contact with the enemy. Captain Hayden's
battery, however, did excellent service having been posted by the General in person, so as to
cross-fire on the enemy. The First Iowa Battery, also, under command of Lieutenant David, did
good execution with what little ammunition he had been able to obtain during the night.

189, 90, Index to official reports of battle of Pea Ridge. Report of Lieutenant David not found, as
stated in foot-note No. 2.
In another part of his report Colonel Carr makes mention of the desperate character of the
fighting in which the battery participated, as follows:
The enemy seemed to have the range exactly. Colonel Smith, Thirty-fifth Illinois, was
wounded In the head by a shell, which took off part of his scalp. He received a bullet in his
shoulder, and his horse was killed, all about the same time. Colonel Smith and his regiment
showed the utmost gallantry, and deserve great credit for their steadiness In supporting the
battery, as well as for their conduct. Subsequently, when fighting the enemy's Infantry near the
same point, . . . five or six ammunition chests burst, one after the other. Captain Jones and
Lieutenant Gambell were wounded by my side, and all but one of the pieces were disabled. This
one piece was commanded by Corporal Leebert, First Iowa Battery, and was the only gun which
was in the action from beginning to end, and both Corporal Leebert and his cannoneers deserve
great credit for coolness, gallantry and activity through the entire action. 4
The official report of Colonel G. M. Dodge, who commanded the brigade to which the First
Iowa Battery was attached, makes frequent and commendatory mention of the conduct of the
men and officers of the battery. As will be seen from the report, the battle was opened on the
morning of March 7, 1862, by the First Iowa Battery, Which fired the first artillery shot, under
the personal direction of that splendid Iowa soldier, Colonel Dodge, who subsequently achieved
great fame and distinction as one of the ablest officers in the Union army, and attained the rank
of Major General. The following extracts—which pertain to the battery—are taken from his
report:
On the morning of the 7th I was ordered to take position with my brigade near Elkhorn
Tavern, on the Springfield road. On my arrival I discovered the enemy in the timber about half a
mile to the right, and brought up one section of the First Iowa Battery, which opened the battle,
doing considerable execution. The enemy fled to the hollow when I deployed my line, covering
as much ground as possible, placing Major McConnell, commanding one battalion of the Third
Illinois Cavalry. on the right, the Thirty-fifth Illinois Infantry on the left, and the Fourth Iowa
Infantry and one section of the First Iowa Battery in the center, on the center sending forward a
company of skirmishers from the Fourth Iowa, who soon became sharply engaged, causing the
enemy to open on us with shell, solid and grape shot. Four pieces of the First Iowa Battery were
planted on the Springfield road, near the tavern, which opened on the enemy's batteries to the
right. Captain J. A. Jones and Lieutenant Gambell were wounded here.... As soon as the
engagement had fairly begun I closed up my line to the left and awaited the attack, keeping the
section of the battery at work with my skirmishers until near 2 o'clock, when the enemy ceased
firing and drew back. I soon discovered that the enemy was preparing for a general attack, and
charged front to the right, covering my men with a rail fence, foreleg the enemy to cross an open
field to reach me. I formed my line and opened fire with one section of my battery, the other four
pieces having left the field for want of ammunition. The enemy answered with eight pieces of
artillery, and advanced on my right, left and front. . .
4
It will thus be seen, that the one section of the First Iowa Battery was left to contend against
eight pieces of the enemy and, as shown by the extract from Colonel Carr's report, heretofore
referred to, right nobly did that section perform its duty. The explosion of the ammunition chests
had disabled the other pieces of the battery and put them out of action, but the conduct of the
First Iowa Battery, in that first day of the battle of Pea Ridge, was such as to merit the high
commendation which it received in the official reports of the brigade and division commanders.
4 War of the Rebellion Official Records, Series 1, Vol. 8, page 259.
In his report of the part taken by his brigade on the second day of the battle. Colonel Dodge
again makes mention of the battery, as follows:
At sunrise the First Iowa Battery was put in position and opened fire on the enemy's batteries,
which were planted on the point near the hotel. The fire was effective and very hot. The battery,
had to retire in about an hour, having spent all the ammunition. 6
At the conclusion of his report Colonel Dodge makes special mention of the gallant conduct
of many of the officers of his own and the other regiments which fought under his command,
among whom were Captain H. H. Griffiths acting Major of the Fourth Iowa Infantry, (who
subsequently became Captain of the First Iowa Battery,) and Lieutenant V. J. David, who
succeeded to the command of the battery when Captain Jones and Lieutenant Gambell were
wounded. Every field officer in Colonel Dodge's brigade was disabled and had to leave the field.
and only two Lieutenants were left in the battery.
In view of the fact that this was the first experience of the men and officers of the First Iowa
Battery under the fire of the enemy, or, at least that it was the first experience of by far the
greater number of them, the compiler of this sketch considers it the severest test of their courage
and fighting qualities. He has, therefore, devoted nearly as much space to the description of their
first battle as he will be able to devote to their subsequent history. He will, however, endeavor to
give some account of each event of importance which marked their long period of service.
Captain Jones resigned March 24, 1862, and Lieutenant Gambell, being absent on account of
his wounds, and Lieutenant David being upon detached service, the command of the battery
devolved upon Lieutenant Abram Harbach during the months of April, May and a part of June,
the battery in the meantime marching with the army, from Cassville, Mo. to Batesville, Ark. On
May 16,1862, Captain H. H. Griffiths of Company E, Fourth Iowa Infantry was commissioned
Captain of the First Iowa Battery, and assumed command of the battery upon its arrival at
Batesville, Ark, in June. Shortly afterwards the battery marched to Helena, Ark., where it arrived
in July. Captain Griffiths has given a condensed report of the movements and operations of the
battery from the time. he assumed command until December, 1863, from which time Captain
Gay continues the report, and the compiler has obtained the material for the completion of this
condensed history from the reports of these two officers. 6
On the march to Helena, the officers and men of the battery, and the troops with which they
were associated, endured great hardships. In November, 1862, the battery formed part of an
expedition under command of General Hovey, which reached Oakland. Miss., on its way to
Arkansas Post, (which was the objective point,) but, before reaching that place, the expedition
was abandoned and the troops returned to Helena. In December, 1862, the battery formed part of
General Steele's Division, which made an attack upon the intrenched position of the enemy at
Chickasaw Bayou, which was unsuccessful, the Union troops being repulsed with heavy loss. On
the 11th of January following, the battery was actively and conspicuously engaged in, the battle
5
of Arkansas Post. Major General McClernand highly commended the officers and men of the
battery for the efficient service they had rendered, and, as a practical evidence of his
appreciation, issued a special order; presenting the Captain with two fine Parrott guns, which had
been captured from the enemy, thus adding greatly to the strength and efficiency of the battery.

6 Report of Adjutant General of Iowa, 1864, pages 53I to 633 inclusive, and Vol. 2, 1865, pages
1230 to 1234 inclusive. History of First Iowa Battery, by Captains Griffiths and Gay.
After the surrender of Arkansas Post, the battery, with the other troops which had been
engaged in the siege, embarked on transports and moved to Sherman's Landing, opposite
Vicksburg. Captain Griffiths, in his report. makes the following statement: "I look upon this
whole campaign as the hardest and most trying, in many respects, we have as yet endured. The
transports proved to be perfect pest houses. Smallpox broke out, and the battery had, at one time,
thirty-five men sick with this painful and loathsome disease."
On April 13, 1863, the battery was assigned to General Carr's Division of the Thirteenth
Army Corps, and subsequently ran the blockade on a transport, with other troops, and landed at
Bruinsburg, Miss., April 30, 1862. On the afternoon of that day, the battery—with its brigade
and division—took up the line of march and proceeded in the direction of Port Gibson. At one
o'clock on the morning of May 1st, while marching in the darkness, the enemy was encountered,
and a heavy artillery fire was opened on the advancing Union troops by the rebel batteries. The
First Iowa Battery got rapidly into position, and responded to the fire of the rebel battery in its
front so effectively that its fire was soon silenced. The troops lay upon their arms until daylight,
when the battle was renewed. From the commencement to the close of that hotly contested
engagement, the First Iowa Battery fought steadily and courageously and contributed its full
share in winning a complete victory. In the reports of the regimental brigade and division
commanders, the battery wag given full credit for its splendid service, and the battle of Port
Gibson was added to the lengthening list of its conflicts with the enemy.
On May 13th, the battery was ordered to rejoin General Steele's Division of the Fifteenth
Army Corps. It participated In the first capture of Jackson, Miss., and, marching from that place
to Vicksburg, fired its first shot in the siege of that stronghold of the enemy on May 18, 1863.
From that day until the surrender, on July 4, 1863, the First Iowa Battery was actively engaged in
the siege, firing over thirteen hundred rounds from each of its guns. No field battery among the
great number engaged in the long line of investment of the doomed city was more active, or
contributed more fully to the glorious result of its capture than the First Iowa.
On the night of July 6th the battery took up its line of march towards Jackson, and, upon its
arrival in Front of the enemy's works at that place. at once went into position and participated in
the siege which followed, resulting in the second capture of that place, by General Sherman's
army, on July 16, 1863. The battery then marched to Brandon, Miss., and thence to Big Black
River Bridge. where it went into camp and remained during the months of July and August.
During this period the men suffered much from sickness. The next few months were full of
important events in the history of the First Iowa Battery. but they have been condensed into the
following brief and comprehensive summary, by Captain Griffiths:
On September 2d, marched to Vicksburg, took transport to Memphis. railroad thence to
Corinth, marched to Tuscumbia, had five days' fighting at Cherokee Station and Tuscumbia,
returned to Chickasaw, Ala., and, on the 4th of November, crossed the Tennessee River and
marched by a circuitous route of near four hundred miles through a mountainous country to
Chattanooga, Tenn. On the morning of November 26th opened fire on Lookout Mountain, under
6
the immediate eye of Major General Joe Hooker, who complimented the battery, as did his Chief
of Staff, Major General Butterfield. Took part in the next day's fight at Missionary Ridge. While
at Chattanooga, our guns being entirely worn out, we turned them over, and received new
equipment of ten-pounder Parrott guns.
7 Report of Adjutant General of Iowa, 1364, page 533.
Captain Griffiths states; near the close of his report, that the battery had always done well,
and had never lost a gun, but that it had several times been saved only by the greatest efforts. He
also states that, in December, 1863, the battery marched to Woodville, Ala., by way of
Bridgeport, and that in that month he had gone to Iowa on recruiting service, where he procured
ninety-three recruits, who had joined the battery. In concluding his report, Captain Griffiths says:
I desire to thank Senior First Lieutenant W. H. Gay, for a long time commander of the
company, for his faithful discharge of duty and his invariable gallantry and skill Junior First
Lieutenant Curtiss, and Second Lieutenants Iiams and Parks. These gentlemen have been with
the battery throughout its entire career, and to them is due much of its success. I also desire to
thank First Sergeant Leebert, Sergeants B. Antrobus and Thomas Fitken, and Corporals Olney,
Gardner, Black and L. J. White, for invariable good conduct.
The history of the operations of the battery during the great Atlanta campaign has been
written by Captain W. H. Gay, with such admirable. clearness and minute attention to details that
the compiler regrets the necessity for condensing it, on account of the limitation of space to
which he is subjected. It will be his endeavor, however, to include all the events of greatest
importance in which the battery participated during the campaign.
At the opening of the campaign the battery had received its new equipment, and was in fine
condition. It had been transferred from the First to the Fourth Division of the Fifteenth Corps,
and had arrived at Snake Creek Gap, Ga. on May 11, 1864. On May 13th the army moved
forward, and found the enemy strongly posted at Resaca, Ga., where a severe battle ensued.
About 4 P. M. the First Iowa Battery went into action, taking position in an open field in front of
two rebel batteries. The firing of the battery was accurate and deadly, and soon forced the rebel
batteries to retire. The battle continued on the 14th, and the battery was engaged most of the day,
doing good execution. On the 15th the battery became heavily engaged and acquitted itself
handsomely. On the night following, the enemy evacuated his position. On examination of the
position occupied by the rebel batteries, against which the First Iowa Battery had directed its fire,
two of the guns were found to be dismounted, thus showing the destructive effect of the fire of
the Iowa battery, and the superiority of Its gunners. The battery was highly commended in the
official reports of the brigade, division and corps commanders. It had expended six hundred
eighty three rounds of ammunition in the engagement, end its casualties were small, as compared
with those it had inflicted upon the enemy.
8 The names of the killed and wounded In this engagement, as well as the previous and
subsequent engagements of the battery, will be found in the subjoined roster, where all casualties
from whatever cause will also be found noted.
0n May 16th, the battery—with its brigade—marched in pursuit of the retreating enemy,
crossed the Coosa River the same day, and arrived at Kingston, Ga., on the 18th. The rebel army
had crossed the Elowah River and burned the bridge, thus delaying the advance of the Union
7
army several days. Captain H. H. Griffiths, who had been acting by special detail as Chief of
Artillery for the Fourth Division thus far on the campaign, was relieved from that duty on May
20th and, on that date, resumed command of the battery, relieving Captain Gay, who had been in
command during his absence. On May 23d the army again advanced, and arrived at Dallas on the
25th, where the enemy was found strongly intrenched. On the 28th, three guns of the battery
were ordered to take position one hundred yards in advance of the main line of battle. The
position was covered by a thick growth of underbrush and was swept by the enemy's musketry. It
was evident that a grave mistake had been made in placing these guns so far in advance, without
infantry support. The order was promptly obeyed, however, and the guns opened fire upon the
enemy at close range. Just thirty-three rounds—mostly canister—had been fired, when the fire of
the enemy became so severe that the position could be no longer be held. Realizing the danger of
the guns being captured, the Captain gave the order to fall back. Referring to this critical
situation, Captain Gay makes the following statement "By the greatest of efforts of Captain
Griffiths and the men under him, the guns were saved; and I cannot forbear to record that great
praise was due Captain Griffiths for the coolness and courage displayed by him on this trying
occasion. His manful and determined efforts to save the guns contrasted widely with the conduct
of the fickle and incompetent officer who ordered them there."
The battery suffered severely in this engagement. Captain Gay gives the names of the
following enlisted men, whom he deemed worthy of special mention for their gallantry "Private
John W. Marrs, severely wounded; private S. H. Titus (now First Sergeant), captured, but, by
great personal courage, killed his captor and made good his escape, Sergeants Thomas Eltkin and
James Elting; Corporals Samuel Black, Alonzo C. Blanchard and Clinton B. Olney, and Privates
Matthew Blake (now Sergeant), John M. Burnside, Henry Day and John Shick."
On the night of May 31st the army again moved forward. On June 6th It had reached
Ackworth, Ga., where it remained two days, and then advanced to the intrenched position of the
enemy at Kenesaw Mountain. In the battles around Kenesaw. the First Iowa Battery took an
active and conspicuous part, and did good execution, firing nine hundred twenty-two rounds of
ammunition. On the night of July 2d, Kenesaw Mountain was evacuated by the rebels, and, the
following day, the Union army entered Marietta, Ga. There Captain Griffiths was again detailed
to act as Chief of Artillery for the Fourth Division, and Captain Gay again took command of the
battery. On the morning of July 4th the army again moved forward. The enemy was encountered
at Nick-a-jack Creek, of the 6th, but the battery did not become actively engaged until the 8th,
when it went into action and opened fire.. The enemy retreated and escaped across the
Chattahoochee River.
The army continued to advance and, on the 20th, the Fourth Division was in line of battle on
the east of Atlanta, where it again engaged the enemy. The First Iowa Battery was. placed in
position and, for some inexplicable cause, was ordered to withhold fire. Captain Gay says: "I was
ordered to remain in this position, and not to fire until further orders, and for one mortal hour the
enemy poured a well-directed fire into our silent battery. It was Indeed a trying hour. Could we
have been allowed to respond, we could have soon put the rebel battery out of the way." It is
difficult to believe that brave men should have been placed in such a situation without good and
sufficient reason. There could have been no more severe test of the courage and discipline of the
officers and men of the battery than to have obeyed the order and maintained their position;
while not allowed to return the fire to which they were subjected and from which they were
suffering loss. Lieutenant T. A. Iiams was severely wounded, and borne from the field; Sergeant
A. C. Blanchard and Private William M. Micheal were killed; Privates E. Odell and J. M.
Burnside were severely wounded, and Sergeant Levi Amos and Corporal William F. Conner
8
were slightly wounded. All the officers and men behaved with the utmost steadiness and
gallantry during that trying ordeal.
9 Report of Adjutant General of Iowa, 1865, Vol. 2, page 1231.
The next day the battery became heavily engaged and did great execution. On the 22d of
July, the battery participated in one of the greatest battles of the war, in which it expended five
hundred ninety-eight rounds of ammunition, inflicted heavy damage upon the enemy, and had a
number of its own men killed and a number wounded. On this day Captain H. H. Griffiths
handled the artillery of the Fourth Division with great skill, and exhibited the highest degree of
personal courage. In some instances he halted batteries which were going to the rear and turned
them upon the enemy with deadly effect. The enemy made great efforts to capture the caissons of
the First Iowa Battery, but failed on account of the splendid courage and personal efforts of
Corporal Elliott Frazier, in whose charge Captain Gay had placed them. The Corporal was
rewarded for his gallantry by being made Sergeant. Lieutenant Curtiss, Sergeants Leebert, Fitkin,
Antrobus and Gardner, Corporals Black, Thomas, Conner and Starkweather, received special
mention for good conduct and the entire company was commended for having fully discharged
its duty. During the siege of Atlanta, the battery performed its full share of duty, occupying
various positions on different parts of the line and serving its guns with skill and effect against
the works of the enemy.
The original term of service of the battery expired the latter part of August and, on the 10th
of that month, Captain Griffiths received an order to proceed, with Lieutenant Curtiss and the
enlisted men, whose terms of service were about to expire, to Davenport, Iowa, there to be
honorably mustered out of the service of the United States. Therefore, on August 11th 1864,
those officers and enlisted men departed for Iowa, and were dropped from the rolls of the
company, leaving those whose terms of enlistment had not expired and those who had re-enlisted
to constitute the company and to continue in the service to the end of the war. During its service
in the trenches around Atlanta, the battery had one man killed and seven men severely wounded.
During this period it expended twelve hundred sixteen rounds of ammunition.
On the 26th of August, 1864, the First Iowa Battery left its position in the trenches before
Atlanta and moved to Flint River, south of the city, and from thence to Jonesboro, where it
arrived on the night of the 30th. 0n the day following occurred the battle of Jonesboro in which
the battery took an active part, expending four hundred ninety-seven rounds of ammunition. The
rebels charged the battery twice, but were each time repulsed with heavy loss. Corporal P. N.
Starkweather and Privates James Lonsdale and Dennis W. Dean particularly distinguished
themselves in this engagement, the latter being severely wounded and losing his left leg. On the
morning of September 2d the battery again went into action at Lovejoy's Station. The enemy
made quite a determined resistance but was again defeated. The battery arrived at East Point on
September 8th. Here the great campaign closed. From its commencement to its close Iowa troops
had borne an honorable and conspicuous part, and none had won greater honor than the first
Iowa Battery. In closing his report, Captain Gay pays a well deserved tribute to his brother
officer, Lieutenant Thomas A. Iiams, and to all the members of the battery. They had shown their
sterling qualities as soldiers, and had nobly maintained the honor of their State. 10
10 Report of Adjutant General of Iowa, 1865, Vol. 2, pages 1230 to 1234 inclusive
The subsequent history of the battery includes its operations during the pursuit of the rebel
General Hood's army, extending into northern Georgia and Alabama, during which it was several
9
times in action. The pursuit was abandoned on December 26, 1864 and the battery proceeded to
Nashville, Tenn., where it participated in the battle fought there on December 15 and 16, 1864.
This terminated the active service of the battery in the field. It was then assigned to garrison duty
at Nashville, and remained there until the latter part of June, 1865. It was then ordered to proceed
to Davenport, Iowa, where it was mustered out of the service July 5, 1865.
The foot-note, following its muster out roll, reads as follows "The First Independent Battery
Iowa Veteran Volunteers was mustered out of the service of the United States at Davenport, July
5, 1865. Officers not otherwise accounted for in the above roster were mustered out as with the
battery." 11
The subjoined roster has been carefully transcribed from the official records in the office of
the Adjutant General of Iowa, and is as nearly correct as It was possible to make it. Probably
some of the names were not properly spelled and some of the personal records may not be as
complete as they should be but all that could be found in the records is contained in this revised
roster, which was prepared forty-five years after the officers and men of the battery had been
mustered out of the service. The majority of its members who were living at the close of the war
have answered the last roll call, and but few remain to peruse this record, but the sons and
daughters of the men who made it, and their posterity, will be grateful for its preservation. They,
together with all the citizens of the great Commonwealth of Iowa, are the inheritors of the
blessings of the free and enlightened Government which these heroic soldiers fought to save. So
long as patriotism and valor is honored among men will the memory of those who fought for the
preservation of the unity of our great Republic to honored and revered.
