HISTORICAL SKETCH
THIRD BATTERY IOWA LIGHT ARTILLERY
The Third Iowa Battery was organized under special authority from the Secretary of War,
during the months Of August and September, 1861, at Dubuque, Iowa, under the name of the
Dubuque Battery, and was attached to the Ninth Regiment Iowa Volunteer Infantry, Colonel
William Vandever commanding, while it remained in rendezvous and for some time after taking
the field. On September 3, 1861, the first detachment of the battery, with William H. McClure as
First Lieutenant, was mustered into the service of the United States and went into quarters at
Camp Union, near Dubuque. The necessary additional enlistments—to complete the organization
of a full battery of artillery—were soon secured and, on September 24,1861, the muster in of the
battery was completed. The names of the commissioned officers appear upon the original roster,
as follows:! Captain, Mortimer M. Hayden; Senior First Lieutenant, William H. McClure; Junior
First Lieutenant, Melville C. Wright; Senior Second Lieutenant, William H. Crozier, and Junior
Second Lieutenant, Jerome Bradley. The roster shows that, upon the completion of its muster,
the battery numbered one hundred forty men, rank and file.
The battery, with the Ninth Iowa Infantry, left Camp Union on September 26, 1861, and,
embarking on the steamer "Canada," was conveyed to St. Louis, arriving there on the 30th, and
going into quarters at Benton Barracks, near that city. There, uniforms and horses were provided
for the battery, but its equipment was not completed until two months later, owing to the
difficulty of procuring guns and the other articles necessary to place the battery in condition to
take the field for active service. In the meantime, only such instruction could be given as related
to the rudiments of artillery drill, and discipline. On November 13, 1861, the company was
ordered to proceed to Pacific City, Mo., thirty-five miles west of St. Louis, where it remained
until near the last of January, 1862. About the first of December it received its armament of six
guns— four six pounder bronze guns and two twelve pounder howitzers—and the other requisite
equipage appertaining to a field battery. The officers and men at once began to drill, and, by the
time they were ordered to take the field, had become quite proficient in handling the guns. The
battery was several times reviewed and inspected and, in connection with the Ninth Iowa
Infantry, went through the movements that might be required when engaged in conflict with the
enemy. The inspecting officers reported that it was in condition to take the field and to render
good service, and on January 25, 1862. Captain Hayden was ordered to proceed with the battery
to Rolla, Mo., to which place it was conveyed by rail and, upon its arrival there, joined the army
under command of Major General Curtis, then about to begin an aggressive campaign against the
enemy.
1 Report of Adjutant General of Iowa, 1863, Vol. 2, pages 666 to 670 Inclusive. Official Roster
of the Battery.
On January 28, 1862, the army, under General Curtis, began its advance toward Springfield,
Mo., where General Price, in command of the rebel army, had established his headquarters, and
where it was expected a battle would occur. The weather was cold, it rained much of the time,
and the roads were in such terrible condition that the artillery and transportation trains of the
2
army made slow and difficult progress. Upon reaching Lebanon, sixty-five miles from Rolla,
General Curtis halted his army, and proceeded to thoroughly reorganize it before again
advancing. The Third Iowa Battery was assigned to the Second Brigade, Fourth Division, Army
of the Southwest. The brigade consisted of the following troops: Ninth Iowa Infantry, Twentyfifth
Missouri Infantry and Third Illinois Cavalry, and was under command of Colonel William
Vandever of the Ninth Iowa. After putting his army in the best possible condition to meet the
enemy, General Curtis again moved forward towards Springfield. The rebel General Price was
awaiting reinforcements, which failed to reach him at Springfield, and he therefore determined
not to risk an engagement at that place. On the night of February 12,1862, the rebel army began
its retreat toward the Boston Mountains in Arkansas, and, on the next day, the advance of
General Curtis' army took possession of Springfield.
Early on the morning of February 14th, the army took up its line of march in pursuit of the
retreating enemy. At Flat Creek, fifty miles from Springfield, the Third Iowa Battery fired its
first shot at the enemy. Its brigade leading the advance of the army, and coming within long
range of the enemy's rear guard. the battery opened fire, but, after firing a few shots, the rebels
got out of range. The pursuit was continued, and the army crossed the Missouri line and reached
Sugar Creek, in Arkansas, where the rear guard of the rebel army was again encountered by the
cavalry which had advanced some distance beyond the Union infantry. After a brief
engagement—in which the cavalry sustained considerable loss—Vandever's Brigade was
ordered to move forward, and the Third Iowa Battery was soon engaged with a rebel battery in
its front. The gunners of the battery delivered their fire so accurately that, in less than thirty
minutes, they had silenced the fire of the rebel battery, and it had limbered up and was galloping
off the field, the rest of the rebel force also retreating before the advance of Vandever's Brigade.
There were no casualties among the officers and men of the battery in this affair, but it lost two
horses killed and had one caisson disabled by the enemy's fire. General Curtis complimented the
battery for the skillful management of its guns.
Upon learning that the rebel army had been largely reinforced, General Curtis halted his
army at Cross Hollow, Ark., from which place his cavalry scouts kept close watch upon the
movements of the enemy. It later became necessary to place the different divisions at
considerable distances apart, in order to obtain supplies from the surrounding country, and the
enemy, taking advantage of the situation, was preparing to attack these separated forces and
prevent them from being concentrated. On the 4th of March, a portion of Vandever's Brigade,
consisting of detachments of the Ninth Iowa and Twenty-fourth Missouri Infantry, and Third
Illinois Cavalry' with one section of the Third Iowa Battery, under command of Lieutenant
Wright, the whole force, commanded by General Vandever, started on a reconnaissance in the
direction of Huntsville, Ark., which place was reached after a march of forty-five miles. A
portion Of the enemy's supplies and some prisoners were captured near Huntsville. From the
prisoners Colonel Vandever learned that the enemy was marching to the attack of General Curtis'
army, and he at once started upon his return march, which was conducted with such skill and
energy as to avoid coming into contact with the enemy. It was one of the most remarkable and
exhausting marches made during the war, by a mixed command of cavalry, infantry and artillery,
covering a distance of forty-seven miles in one day.
General Curtis, in anticipation of an attack by the enemy, had wisely concentrated his army
in a strong position at Pea Ridge. The attack was made in a most determined manner, early on
the morning of March 7, 1862. The Third Iowa Battery proceeded to the front with its brigade.
3
Two sections of the battery went into action near Elkhorn Tavern, relieving the First Iowa
Battery, Which had suffered heavy loss, and had several of its caissons exploded by the fire of
the refuel batteries in its front. The position was one of the most exposed on the field. The rebel
gunners had gotten the range quite accurately, and their fire was destructive. Before the two
sections of the Third Iowa had been under fire ten minutes, one gun had been disabled, one
caisson blown up, several of the men wounded, and a number of the horses killed and disabled.
Colonel Carr, the division commander, observing the desperate situation in which the two
sections had been placed, and realizing the danger of their being entirely disabled or captured,
ordered them to fall back out of range and await assignment to a less exposed position. The
entire battery then took a position to the right of Elkhorn Tavern, where it remained until the
entire division Was forced to fall back in the evening. The operations of the battery, during both
days of the battle, are described in the official report of Captain Hayden, as follows:
HEADQUARTERS HAYDEN'S BATTERY,
(ATTACHED TO NINTH IOWA INFANTRY )
SUGAR CREEK, ARK., March 9, 1862.
Colonel: Herewith please find statement of the part taken by this command, 5n the actions of
the 7th and 8th instant: Pursuant to your order I sent forward one section of the battery, in charge
of Lieutenant M. C. Wright, who took position in the road directly in front of and under a heavy
fire from the enemy's battery.
Lieutenants W H. McClure and J. Bradley, with their respective sections, were ordered
forward to engage the enemy on the right and left of the first section. Supported by the Ninth
Iowa Infantry, we held this position until the rebel guns had disabled ten pieces and killed and
wounded many of the men and horses. The engagement now became general along the whole
line, with both artillery and infantry. The enemy's fire becoming too severe, we withdrew,
leaving behind our disabled limber and several killed and wounded horses. We then took
position about three hundred yards in rear of the point where our fire was first opened, remaining
there until near evening, (having held the enemy In check during the entire day.) at which time
the whole division fell back to a large open field, where it halted during the night. Here the
enemy pursued, but, being vigorously engaged by our artillery and infantry, was driven back
with severe loss. During the engagement we attempted to plant the pieces Or the battery upon a
commanding eminence, but failed in the endeavor, an immense force Or the enemy's infantry
charging upon us, carrying away one of my guns, and killing and wounding two of my own, and
several of the battery' horses. On the morning. or the 8th we took position on the enemy's left,
unsupported by either infantry or cavalry, opening fire on the slope where our guns were
captured the previous day. Shortly afterwards the enemy opened upon us from a battery in our
front, to which we then turned our 'are, silencing his guns and driving him from the field. Our
loss is two men killed and seventeen wounded. We lost twenty-three horses killed and three
disabled. Three of our guns and one limber were captured by the enemy. I desire to make
mention of the coolness and bravery of the whole command during the entire engagement,
especially of Lieutenants Wright and Bradley, who, fearless Or all personal danger, met the
enemy with a spirit worthy Or the highest commendation, and cannot overlook the efficient
services rendered by Sergeants House, Harkins and Weaver, alike of Corporals Martin, Gullford,
Goldthorp and Rowls. 'The latter, while spiking the last gun left upon the field, was severely
wounded in both legs.
4
I am, Colonel, respectfully yours,
M. M. HAYDEN, Captain
Commanding Battery.
COLONEL WILLIAM VANDEVER, Commanding Second Brigade, Fourth Division. 2
Colonel William Vandever, the brigade commander, makes mention of the battery, in his official
report, as follows:
I desire also to call especial attention to the Dubuque Light Battery. under command of
Captain M. M. Hayden, whose report is appended. Captain Hayden and every officer of this
battery acquitted themselves with the highest credit. They bore the hottest fire of the enemy with
coolness and intrepidity, the men under the skillful lead Or Captain Hayden performing their
duty with cheerfulness and alacrity, and never faltering. He mentions special instances of bravery
In his report hereto appended, to which I would call especial attention. . .I herewith append a list
of casualties. '
Colonel E. A. Carr, the division commander, also makes mention of the battery in his official
report, as follows:
Captain Hayden, commanding the Dubuque Battery, acted with his usual coolness In
superintending the operation of his guns. He had two horses killed under him.
His battery fired until the last moment, and, in consequence thereof, lost two pieces, several
of his men being shot down while trying to attach them to the limber. The three pieces of
artillery lost that day by Captain Hayden's Battery were recovered by our troops on the next
day.... On the second day 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 foregoing statement of Colonel Carr is fully confirmed by the official report of Major
General Samuel R. Curtis, the Commander-in-Chief of the army, as shown by the following
extract:
I repaired, myself, to the extreme right and found an elevated position considerably in
advance, which commanded the enemy's center and left. Here I located the Dubuque Battery,
directed the right wing to move its right forward so as to support the battery, and give direction
to the advance Or the entire right wing. Captain Hayden soon opened a fire which proved most
galling to the foe, and a marker for our line to move upon. . . . At one time a battery was opened
in front Or Hayden's Battery on the extreme right, so near I could not tell whether it was the
enemy's or an advance Of Hayden's, but riding nearer I soon perceived its true character, and
directed the First Iowa and the Peoria Battery to arose-fire on it, which soon drove It back to the
common hiding place, the deep ravines of Cross Timber Hollow. 6

3 The names of the killed and wounded men Of the battery, in the battle of Pea Ridge and in all
the engagements in which it participated, will be found noted in the subjoined roster, together
with those who died from wounds or disease, of those who were discharged for disability or
5
other causes, and also such records of personal service given opposite each name, as could be
obtained by a careful search of the official records in the office of the Adjutant General Of the
State Of Iowa.

Returns of Casualties In the Army of the Southwest, at the battle of Pea Ridge, Ark., March 6-8,
1862.
During the series of engagements the Third Iowa Battery had expended over one thousand
two hundred rounds of ammunition. This quantity of shot and shell, fired from the guns of one
field battery, will give something of an idea of the immense amount of artillery ammunition
alone which was hurled through the air by the batteries of the contending armies. Add to this the
expenditure of rifle and musketry ammunition, by the cavalry and infantry of both armies, and
the aggregate weight of lead and iron expended in the battle of Pea Ridge would exceed one
hundred tons. General Curtis reported the aggregate loss of his army at one thousand three
hundred eighty-four' and says: "The loss of the enemy was much greater, but their scattered
battalions can never furnish a correct report of their killed and wounded."
Three days after the battle, the battery took up the line of march with the army, and moved
northward to Keithsville, where it halted and remained until April 5th, when the march was
resumed and continued to Batesville, Ark., which place was reached about the 10th of May. The
battery participated in an expedition to Searcy, on the Little Red River, returning to Batesville
about the 20th of June. The army then marched to Helena, Ark., where it arrived on July 12,
1862. During the march the troops suffered greatly from the excessive heat and scarcity of
provisions. Several expeditions were organized and sent out from Helena, in which the Third
Iowa Battery participated, the most prominent among which were Hovey's Mississippi
expedition, in November, 1862; Gorman's White River expedition, January, 1863; and the Yazoo
Pass expedition, March, 1863. In the latter expedition the battery took an active part in the
bombardment of Fort Pemberton. It then returned to Helena, where it constituted part of the
garrison, and, on July 4, 1863, took an important part in the defense of that place against the
attack of the rebel forces under command of General Holmes. First Lieutenant Wright was at that
time in command of the battery. His official report is here quoted in full, as follows
HEADQUARTERS THIRD IOWA BATTERY, HELENA, ARK, July 6, 1863.
CAPTAIN: In obedience to the order of the General commanding, I have the honor to
herewith submit the following report of the part taken by the Third Iowa Battery In the
engagement of yesterday. In accordance with previous instructions, at 3:30 A. M. I ordered one
section of the battery, under command of Second Lieutenant O. H. Lyon, to a point near Battery
D, on the left of our line. The second section, under command of Sergeant L. S. House, which
has for some time been in park on the right of the line, immediately upon the commencement of
the battle pushed forward a few hundred yards to our extreme right, and took position, supported
by a portion of the Second Infantry Brigade, Colonel Rice commanding, and the Cavalry
Brigade, Colonel Clayton commanding. Immediately after getting Into position, this section was
Joined by a battery with steel guns attached to the First Indiana Cavalry, and Colonel Clayton
then assumed command of the whole. This officer then changed the position of his guns to a
6
point on the east side of the levee. on our right. where he remained during the whole of the
engagement. At 6 A. M. the twelve-pound howitzer, In charge of Sergeant L. S. House, was
disabled by the breaking of the understraps which fasten the cheeks to the axletree, the accident
being caused by the recoil of the gun. It was Immediately taken to park for repairs, but could not
be finished In time to take further part In the engagement. At 6:30 A. M., the third section, which
until then remained in camp. was dispatched In charge of Orderly Sergeant J. J. Dengl, to
reinforce the right wing. On taking position, It Immediately opened, and kept up a constant and
effective fire against the guns of the enemy, posted on the hills on the extreme right, until
recalled by order from the General commanding, to Fort Curtis, where It was again effectively
employed against the enemy In their last charge on our works. The section under Lieutenant
Lyon was first engaged about 7 A M., and was after that constantly in action until the close of
the battle, and was for a considerable length of time very hotly pressed. During the charge on
Battery C, Lieutenant Lyon changed the position of his six-pounder gun to command the ravine
running from the Catholic Church westward, and by his fire contributed very materially in
repulsing the enemy. Separated as the battery was during the whole engagement, It is impossible
to give as complete an account of the part taken In It, by the different sections, and to notice
particularly the conduct of my officers and men, as I could wish. While my entire command did
their duty nobly, justice to them compels me to report particularly with regard to the following
officers: Lieutenant Lyon was, during the entire engagement, with his section, directing the fire
of his guns, and encouraging the men by his example to deeds of valor, which I am confident the
General commanding will appreciate. The Lieutenant had his horse wounded twice, severely
though not fatally From Colonel Clayton I learn that Sergeant House, in charge of section,
behaved finely, displaying a great deal of courage and energy, as did also the other noncommissioned
officers In his command. Of Orderly Sergeant J. J. Dengl, having charge of third
section, I can speak from personal observation. He was on hand, ready and active, with a
thorough appreciation of the situation. He showed himself to be emphatically an artillery officer.
Lieutenant Lyon speaks very highly of the conduct, under the most trying circumstances, of the
non-commissioned officers in his command, particularly of Corporal Daniel Folsom, gunner.
The loss of the battery is very light. consisting of one horse killed and seven horses wounded. All
of which is respectfully submitted.
I am your most obedient servant,
M. C. WRIGHT, First Lieutenant
Third Iowa Battery, Commanding.
CAPTAIN A. BLOCKI, A. 4. G. U. S. Forces. 7
Lieutenant Wright in his report giving an account of the main points of interest in the history of
the battery up to November 2. 1864, again refers to the part taken by the battery in the defense of
Helena, and states that it fired over one thousand rounds, but- escaped without any loss of men,
owing to the fact that the fortifications afforded excellent protection, and that the loss 0f eight
horses constituted the casualties sustained by the battery in that engagement. 8

The battery formed a part of General Steele's forces in his Little Rock expedition,
participated in the capture of that place, and also took part in the expedition of General Rice
against Arkadelphia, in October, 1863. In December, 1863, and January, 1864, there were a
sufficient number of re-enlistments to enable the battery to acquire the title of a veteran
organization. The men who re-enlisted were those who had entered the service when the battery
was first organized, and did not include those who had subsequently joined the battery as
recruits. Those who thus assumed the obligation of an extended term of service were officially
designated as '"Veterans" and were granted a furlough of thirty days. They were accordingly sent
to Iowa and, upon the expiration of their furloughs, rejoined the battery at Little Rock, Ark.,
where it had remained during their absence. In May, 1864, the battery received new guns and a
complete new equipment. There is no record of its operations during the summer of 1864, but the
presumption is that it remained on duty during that period as part of the garrison at Little Rock,
Ark.' A large number of recruits joined the battery while it was stationed at that place, and it was
thus provided with its full complement of men, in anticipation of the muster out of those whose
term of service was about to expire.
At the expiration of their three years' term of-service, the non-veterans (those who had not reenlisted)
were sent to Iowa, under the command of Captain Hayden, and were mustered out of
the service of the United States on October 3, 1864. The gallant Captain and his men, who had
faithfully served their country for the full term of their original enlistment, were veterans in fact,
although only their comrades who remained in the service until the close of the war were given
that official designation. They had fully discharged their obligation to the government and were,
therefore, entitled to the honorable discharge which they received, together with the grateful
appreciation of their splendid service by the loyal people of their State and Nation. 10
9 Report of Adjutant General of Iowa, 1865, Vol. 2, page 1241. The report of the operations of
the battery—up to November 2, 1864—was written by captain M. C. Wright, at Little Rock, Ark.
The report of its subsequent operations was made by Captain O. H. Lyon, after the battery was
mustered out of the service. His report is found on pages 570 to 572 inclusive, report of Adjutant
General of Iowa, 1867, Vol. 2.
10 Captain M. M. Hayden subsequently re-entered the service, as Captain in General Hancock's
Veteran Corps.
Captain Wright—under date of November 2, 1864—closes his report, as follows:
The following is the present roster of the volunteers of the battery: Captain, Melville C.
Wright; Senior First Lieutenant, Orlo H. Lyon; Junior First Lieutenant, Joseph J. Dengl; Senior
Second Lieutenant, Leroy S. House, and Junior Second Lieutenant, Hiland H. Weaver. The
armament of the battery consists of four ten- pounder parrott guns, caliber three inch, and two
three-inch bronze rifle guns. The battery is at present in comfortable winter quarters, built by
ourselves, and is in a good state of, drill and discipline.
The report of Captain Lyon—heretofore referred to—describes in detail the subsequent
movements and operations of the battery. It did not again come into conflict with the enemy, but
performed important duties, the most notable of which were as follows: During the months of
October and November, 1i64, while the rebel forces under General Price were invading the State
of Missouri, it became necessary to forward a large quantity of commissary stores from Little
Rock, Ark., to the Federal troops stationed at Fort Smith. Navigation of the Arkansas River was
8
rendered unsafe by reason of the occupation of forces of the enemy of intermediate points along
its shores. An expedition by land was therefore organized., consisting of a large wagon train,
heavily loaded with supplies, and guarded by a sufficient force of infantry and artillery to protect
it from capture by the enemy. The Thirty-third Regiment of Iowa Infantry, commanded by
Colonel C. H. Mackey, and one section (two guns) of the Third Iowa Battery, commanded by
Lieutenant J. J. Dingl, were detailed to guard the train, and took up the long march for Fort Smith
on October 30th. Soon after the march began it was learned that the rebel army, under General
Price, had been defeated and driven out of Missouri. and was then retreating into Arkansas. As
the expedition under Colonel Mackey was on the line traversed by the rebel army, the danger of
an attack by a superior force of the enemy at once became apparent. Fortunately, however, the
enemy had been so thoroughly defeated and was being. so vigorously pursued that, although a
large number of his troops came dangerously near the train and its escort, they did not discover
it, and passed swiftly on, leaving the expedition to continue its march to Fort Smith, where it
arrived in due time and delivered the much needed supplies to the troops stationed there. Halting
but two days for rest, the expedition started on the return march, during which many stragglers
from the rebel army were captured. The expedition reached Little Rock on November 27, 1864,
having marched three hundred sixty miles, much of the way over difficult roads and through
heavy rain storms, making the march a most arduous one for both men and horses.
During the fall of 1864, a number of recruits were received by the battery, increasing its
aggregate strength to nearly two hundred men. The men were employed mainly during the
following winter in completing the works at Fort Steele. The spring of 1865 found the battery In
splendid condition for active service in the field, but the war was virtually ended, and troops
were retained at various places in the South for the purpose of maintaining order and assisting
the civil authorities in protecting the lives and property of the citizens against the lawless bands
which infested the country. The tribes of Indians, occupying the Indian Territory on the borders
of Arkansas and Missouri, were in a state of unrest. Many of them had joined the rebel army, and
it became necessary for the military authorities to assume supervision over them and bring them
back to their former friendly relations with the United States government. For this purpose a
general council was held with the Indians at Fort Smith, in September, 1865, and the Third Iowa
Battery was ordered to proceed to Fort Smith, where troops were being concentrated prior to the
holding of the council. The battery left Little Rock on August 14, 1865, and marched the entire
distance of one hundred eighty miles, unattended by other troops, and reached Fort Smith on
August 28th. It remained there while the council with the Indians was being held and, at its
conclusion, turned over the animals belonging to the battery to the Post Quartermaster. There
were, one hundred fifteen horses and forty-eight mules, all in excellent condition. The guns and
other equipments of the battery were loaded on the steamer "American" and, with the officers
and men, started for Little Rock, which place was reached on October 4th, when Captain Lyon
received orders to turn over the guns and ordnance stores and proceed with his company to
Davenport, Iowa. The journey of sixteen hundred miles by steamer was begun at Little Rock on
October 7th and ended at Davenport on the 18th. There, on October 23, 1866, the officers and
men of the Third Iowa Veteran Battery were mustered out of the service of the United States. It
had entered the service more than four years before, with an aggregate strength of one hundred
forty men, rank and file. Owing to the large number of recruits it had received during the latter
part of its service, there were one hundred fifty-three names borne upon its rolls at the date of its
muster out. 11

11 All the changes among officers, by reason of resignation and discharge at expiration Or term
of service, and all promotions of commissioned and non- commissioned Officers and privates,
will be found noted in the subjoined roster. together with their personal record of service, in so
far as the same could be obtained from the official records.
The Third Iowa Battery has a most honorable record of service. Its field of operations was
somewhat circumscribed, and, during the latter part of its service, it did not have the
opportunities for actual conflict with the enemy which had marked its earlier career. But,
wherever it was placed, its conduct was such as to merit and receive the highest commendation
of commanding officers, for efficient and faithful service. It therefore occupies an honored place
in the military history of the State of Iowa, and of the United States.
