This database contains information on Iowa regiments in the Civil War. Included in this are biographical notices of Iowa officers, history of Iowa regiments and other Iowa troops, and a statement of military operations in the departments wherein they served (p. 5). Portraits of many distinguished Iowa officers are also included in this work. Researchers with Civil War ancestors from Iowa will especially find this database valuable. However, as names of soldiers of other states are also mentioned in this work, this database can prove to be valuable for even those researchers with non-Iowan ancestors.
