Roster and Record of Iowa Troops In the Rebellion, Vol. 5
By Guy E. Logan
HISTORICAL SKETCH
SECOND IOWA LIGHT ARTILLERY
The organization of the Second Battery Iowa Light Artillery followed close upon that of the
First. The records in the office of the Adjutant General of Iowa contain the following entry,
appended to the roster of the company.
"Enrolled in the counties of Dallas, Polk, Harrison, Fremont and Pottawattamie. Ordered into
quarters by the Governor of the State July 4, 1861, and mustered into the service of the United
States by Lieutenant Lewis Merrill, U. S. A., at Council Bluffs, Iowa, and St. Louis, Mo., August
8 and 31, 1861, under proclamation of the President of the United States, bearing date May 3,
1861."
Council Bluffs had been designated as the rendezvous of the battery, but, as shown in the
foregoing paragraph, its officers and men were not all assembled there upon August 8th, else
they would all have been mustered in on that date. The organization must, therefore, have been
completed on August 31st, at St. Louis, Mo. The original roster shows that the battery numbered
eighty-nine men—rank and file—at the date of its muster into the service, but it subsequently
received many recruits, as shown in the subjoined roster, which has been carefully transcribed
from the official records in the office of the Adjutant General of Iowa.
During the progress of the war, Adjutant General Baker endeavored to procure copies of all
the reports of commanding officers of Iowa military organizations, as shown in the introductory
article to this volume. The compiler of this historical sketch has used only official data, where it
was procurable, but finds it somewhat meager in the case of this battery, only two of the reports
of its commanding officers being found in the records. He has, therefore, had recourse to such
semi-official and reliable information as he was able to procure, to supplement that which it
contained in the official records. 2

2 In his work entitled .Iowa In War Times," Major S. H. M. Byers gives a brief history of the
Second Iowa Battery. At the commencement of that history the author says: "The writer is
indebted to Judge J. R. Reed, of the Supreme Court of Iowa for the substance of the following
sketch of the battery. Judge Reed was an officer of the battery and one of the most courageous
and competent artillery commanders In the service." Quotations are made by special permission
of Major Byers.
A brief summary of the movements and operations of the battery up to the 1st of December,
1862, is contained in the following report:
CAMP, SECOND IOWA Battery
SIX MILES SOUTH OF HOLLY SPRINGS, MISS.
DEC. 1, 1862.
Sir: I have the honor to transmit the following very brief summary of the doings of the
Second Iowa Battery. The battery receives Its armament at St. Louis, In October, 1861. On the
2
26th day of December, a second, under Lieutenant Walllug, was sent with General Schofield
onto the North Missouri Railroad, returning to Benton Barracks on the 20th of February, 1862.
On February 26th, the battery went to Commerce, Ala., then to New Madrid, under General
Pope. Participated In actions there on the 3d, the night of the 4th, and on the 13th of March. On
March 18th, a detachment of the battery, under Lieutenant C. T. Reed, beat off five gunboats at
Riddle's Point. Was engaged in April in the series of movements which resulted In the capture of
Island Number Ten. Went down the river to Fort Pillow then up the Mississippi and Tennessee to
Hamburg Landing, arriving at the latter place April 23d. With the Army of the Mississippi was
engaged May 9th In the battle of Farmington, and May 28th, battle of Corinth. Followed the
enemy to Booneville, Miss. At Rienzi during the summer, until August 18th, then moved to
Tuscumbia, Ala. back to Corinth September 11th In battle of Iuka, September 19th In battle
before Corinth, October 3d and 4th; In the pursuit of the enemy, under Rosecrans, until October
12th. The battery Is now In the Second Brigade of Ross' Division, Army or the Tennessee.
I am, sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
D, P. Walling, First Lieutenant,
Commanding Battery.
N. B. BAKER, Adjutant General of Iowa.
It will be noted that the foregoing report was dated at Holly Springs, December 1st The
battery was then serving with the army of General Grant, on the Mississippi Central Expedition,
having Vicksburg for its objective point. The subsequent capture of his supplies compelled
General Grant to abandon the expedition, and to fall back to the line of the Memphis and
Charleston Railroad. During the remainder of the winter the Second Iowa Battery was encamped
near Memphis, Tenn. Some of the details. not included in the report of Lieutenant Walling,
pertaining to the engagements in which the battery had thus far participated, are here given, as
related by Major Byers, in the history heretofore referred to, before proceeding with the account
of the subsequent operations of the battery.,
Immediately after the evacuation of New Madrid, Second Lieutenant Reed, with twenty-five
men, was sent some distance down the river, to man some heavy guns. The guns had barely been
placed in position, when five rebel gunboats came up the river and opened fire upon them. The
fire was promptly returned, and a hot artillery duel ensued, in which the gunboats were badly
damaged and were finally withdrawn. On May 30, 1862, in front of Corinth, when General
Stanley's Division was struck in flank by the rebels and was at the point of disaster, while other
batteries were giving way, in order to avoid being captured, the Second Iowa boldly held its
position. and, pouring a destructive fire of grape and canister into the advancing column of the
enemy, checked it and drove it from the field. For its gallant conduct upon that occasion, the
officers and men of the battery received the special thanks of General Stanley.
The battery again greatly distinguished itself at the battle of Corinth, October 4, 1862. Upon
the evening of that day, when General Davies' Division was being driven back by the rebels, and
when General Stanley's Division was sent to his support, the Second Iowa Battery was ordered
into position just as the enemy was making a gallant and determined charge. The battery opened
upon the rebels with canister, when they were within close range, and they were repulsed with
heavy loss. The battery had thus far nobly sustained the glorious record which Iowa soldiers had
made in every battle in which they had been engaged, and its subsequent history will show that
the record was fully maintained.
3
During the spring and summer of 1863, the Second Iowa Battery was attached to the Second
Brigade of the Third Division of the Fifteenth Army Corps.
3 Report of Adjutant General of Iowa, 1863, Vol. 2, page 857
It was actively engaged during the whole of the Vicksburg campaign. The principal
engagements in which it participated are noted, as follows: On May 14th when General
Sherman's forces were approaching Jackson, Miss., the battery was ordered to the front, there
being but one battalion of cavalry and one regiment ahead of it. It first went into position when
the enemy was encountered about three miles from the city, and was the first battery to reply to
the fire of the enemy in that engagement. A rebel battery had been placed in a position which
commanded the road, and it was against that battery that the fire of the Second Iowa was
directed, with such vigor and skill that the guns of the rebel battery were soon silenced and
driven back to the main line of the enemy's works. The battery moved promptly forward, with its
brigade and division, and continued to maintain its position as the leading battery, planting its
guns where its fire reached well into the city, and keeping it up until the place was captured. It
remained in Jackson until the afternoon of the 16th, when it took up its line of march for
Vicksburg, reaching the vicinity of that place on the evening of May 18,1863, upon which date it
became a part of the investing force engaged in the siege of the rebel stronghold. The position
assigned to the Second Iowa Battery was known as the Grave-yard Road, within three hundred
and fifty yards of the strong earthwork which commanded the road. The battery was constantly
engaged in the regular siege operations, while in this position, and, in addition to its field guns,
was supplied with a thirty-pounder Parrott gun, the fire of which proved very effective. With it,
two of the enemy's guns, in the strong work which commanded the road, were dismounted, and
on one occasion the fire was so severe that the rebel gunners were driven from their guns. They
finally closed every embrasure in the fort and, for two weeks before the Second Iowa Battery
was withdrawn from its front. not a shot was fired from the rebel work. On the 22d of June the
battery was withdrawn from the line of siege operations and joined the force under General
Sherman, which was watching the movements of the rebel army under General Johnston.
4 Captain Nelson T. Spoor commanded the battery until 1862, when he was detached as Chief or
Artillery of the First Division. J. R. Reed was In command or the battery, as Senior First
Lieutenant and Captain, from March, 1862, to June 9, 1865 He was promoted to Captain October
1, 1864. Lieutenant C. T. Reed was mustered out August 30, 1864, and Lieutenant (afterwards
Captain) John W. Coons succeeded him In command. See subjoined roster.
After the surrender of Vicksburg, the battery marched to Jackson and participated in the siege
of that place until it was evacuated by the enemy, on July 16th. It then returned to the Big Black
River, near Vicksburg, where it remained in camp until late in November, when it moved to La
Grange, Tenn.. on the line of the Memphis and Charleston Railroad, where it remained until the
following February.
There is no record of the operations of the battery during the remainder of the winter. The
date upon which it left La Grange is not given, but the division to which it was attached had been
transferred from the Fifteenth to the Sixteenth Corps, which was operating in West Tennessee
and Mississippi, and the service and movements of the battery were identified with the
operations of the division to which it belonged. Its next important conflicts with the enemy were
on July 13, 14 and 15, 1864, in the battles at and near Tupelo, Miss., in which the right wring of
the Sixteenth Corps, under command of General A. J. Smith met and defeated a largely superior
4
force of the enemy, commanded by the noted rebel General Forrest. That officer and his troops
were flushed with the signal victory they had won over General Sturgis and his command, and
they entered the engagement at Tupelo confident of winning an easy victory over the command
of General Smith. Captain Reed describes the part taken by the Second Iowa Battery in the series
of battles which ensued, as follows:
On the 13th of July the battery rendered a most Important service. The two armies were
marching In the same general direction, on converging roads. The rebels under Forrest were on
the south road, and a brigade marched over and attacked us while in column. We were In a dense
woods at the time, and the first intimation our troops had of their presence was received through
a ringing volley of musketry. The attack was now east of a creek, and perhaps half a mile from It.
The column was broken up by the crossing, and there was nothing In view of the battery back to
the creek except one small regiment of Infantry, numbering not more than one hundred and fifty
men. The attack struck the column ahead of us, and Its effect was to throw everything Into
confusion. The enemy had come within fifty yards of the road before they were discovered, and
It seemed impossible to prevent them from obtaining possession of it, thus cutting the column In
two. Immediately ahead of us was a section of Battery E, First Illinois, and it was literally turned
on end by the volley. The Infantry ahead of us was equally surprised and demoralized by the
attack, and were getting out of the way as fast as their legs would carry them. No superior officer
was present to give orders, and nothing was to be done but to act on our own Judgment. Our only
resource was to fight It out on our own hook. We got into position as quickly as we could, and
without being observed by the enemy. Fortunately our position was on their flank, and when we
opened fire we enfiladed their line from end to end. The surprise was now on the other side, and
their retreat was probably as expeditious as any that has ever occurred. The fight was ours. Not
another organization or man fired a shot in repulsing the attack. The battle of Tupelo proper was
fought on July 14th and 16th. The position of the battery on the 14th was on the right of the
Twelfth Iowa Infantry, and the left of the Thirty-third Wisconsin. The enemy attacked early In
the morning, the forge on our front being Buford's Division, and an attack was beaten by these
three organizations, associated, perhaps, to some extent, by two other regiments. I never saw
dead and wounded men as thick on any other field as they lay In our front. I afterwards saw
General Buford's report, and he stated his loss at nine hundred seventy-five. there was a sharp
fight on the 16th, In which we participated.
In September, 1864, the battery moved up White River, in Arkansas, and afterwards marched
over five hundred miles in pursuit of the rebel General Price's army, then engaged in the second
invasion of Missouri. The troops with which the battery was associated did not succeed in
overtaking the enemy, other troops having met and defeated General Price's army and driven him
out of the State, before their arrival. The Second Iowa Battery then proceeded to Nashville,
Tenn., arriving there on December 1st, and participating in the battles fought near that place on
December 16 and 16, 1864. The conduct of the battery in those engagements is described in the
official report of Captain Reed, as follows:
LIEUTENANT T. P. GERE, A. A. A. General,
Second Brigade, First Division,
Army of Tennessee.
HEADQUARTERS SECOND IOWA BATTERY, IN THE FIELD, December 21, 1864.
5
SIR: I have the honor to transmit the following report of the part taken by this battery in the
recent engagement near Nashville, Tenn. On the morning of the 16th Inst., the battery moved
from its position at 8 A. M. and marched with the brigade, following all its movements in
column and line, until the enemy was discovered In a strongly intrenched position on our front.
Here, by direction of General McArthur, I placed my rifle section in position, two hundred yards
in rear of the brigade line. From this position I fired ten rounds from each gun, when I moved
forward and placed the battery In position on a slight eminence In front of the brigade and
brought forward my twelve-pounders as fast as I could find positions where they could be used
to advantage. I occupied this position until the brigade was moved to the front, when I
replenished my limber-chests and followed It, and, under direction of Colonel Hubbard,
occupied a position on the left of the battery of McMillen's Brigade, within six hundred yards of
the enemy's works, on which I opened a vigorous fire, which I continued until the work was
carried. I Immediately moved forward, and placed the battery In position on the left of this work,
and opened fire on the summit of the next hill, up the sides of which our skirmishers were then
advancing. As soon as this position was carried, I moved to the front of the work and opened fire
on the enemy's line in the woods and on the pike, one thousand yards to our front, paying
particular attention to a hill to the right of the line, on which the enemy had placed a battery.
When this hill was carried and the enemy's line broken by the charge of the brigade, a confused
mass of the enemy broke from the stone wall at the pike, and started to the rear across an open
field. On this crowd I opened all my guns, with shot and shell, which plowed through and
exploded among them. A large number of them ran back to the wall, and, as I afterwards learned,
surrendered. I then moved to the front, and reported to Colonel Hubbard, who directed me to
open on a battery of the enemy, which was firing on the left of our line. As our position was
immediately on the enemy's flank, and our fire enfiladed him, the battery was In a very few
moments limbered up, and all that part of the brigade moved to the rear. I continued firing until
he passed beyond my range, and, It being then quite dark, I encamped for the night. During the
night I had thrown up a slight work in front of my guns, and at 6 A. M. was harnessed and
hitched up, and at 7 A. M. moved out of our works with the brigade, changed front to the right,
and opened fire on the enemy's train, which was In sight, moving to the right and rear. The
brigade, moving to the front, was soon hotly engaged. By direction of General McArthur, I
moved one section to the front, and placed it In position on a crest, to the right and rear of the
brigade, and in front of the Twenty-third Corps, Immediately bringing forward the other four
guns, which I placed in position still farther to the right. From this position I kept up a vigorous
fire on the enemy's line until the final charge at near 3 P. M. As soon as the line was carried, I
moved three guns—all for which I had ammunition—to the front, following the brigade and
opening on the enemy from every possible position. At dark I encamped with the brigade,
bringing forward during the night the balance of the battery. During the two days I expended
fifteen hundred rounds of ammunition. I had but a single casualty during the whole engagement,
and that resulted from the premature discharge of one of the pieces. To my Lieutenants, Coons
and Burke, I am Indebted for efficient assistance. My non-commissioned officers and men
uniformly behaved with coolness and gallantry. All of which Is respectfully submitted.
J. R. REED, Captain
Commanding Second Iowa Battery
In the engagement on July 15th, when the enemy broke from the protection of the stone wall
along the pike and started to retreat across the open field, it was the terrific fire of the Second
Iowa Battery which caused seven hundred men of the rebel General Walthall's Division to fall
6
back to the cover of the stone wall, where they were subsequently captured. On the 16th, the fire
of the battery was so accurately directed that it caused the explosion of a caisson in each of two
rebel batteries and effectually silenced both of them. No battery on the Union side rendered more
effective service at the battle of Nashville than the Second Iowa.
After the battle. the battery joined in the pursuit of the thoroughly defeated and demoralized
rebel army as far as the Tennessee River, where it halted and went into camp and remained until
February, 1865. It was then transferred to the Gulf Department and went to New Orleans, and
afterward to Mobile Bay, where it participated in the siege of Spanish Fort. It was actively
engaged every day, from the beginning of the siege to the capture of the fort. It then moved to
Montgomery, and later to Selma, Ala., where it remained until late in July, when It was ordered
to return to the State of Iowa, for muster out, after four years of faithful and devoted service. 6
The following note is found appended to the final muster out roll of the battery:
"The Second Independent Battery Iowa Veteran Volunteers was mustered out of the service
of the United States at Davenport, August 7, 1865. All officers not above accounted for were
mustered out as with the battery." 7
The compiler of this sketch has given as complete a condensed history of the services of the
battery as the official records and the other sources of information (to which reference has been
made) will enable him to compile. He has found no reference to individual acts of heroism but,
in its long period of service and its many engagements with the enemy, there were, perhaps,
many such eases that failed to receive official mention. Be that as it may, the record as shown is
altogether an honorable one, and fully entitles the Second Iowa Battery to an honored place in
the military history of the Nation in whose defense it rendered such gallant and important
service, and of the State which sent it to the field.
6 The names of the killed and wounded and of those who died from wounds or disease, together
with all casualties sustained by the battery, will be found noted in the subjoined roster. The roster
also gives the personal record of each officer and enlisted man, in so far as the same is revealed
by the records in the office of the Adjutant General of the State of Iowa.
