Civil War Next Shiloh, Tennessee  


The Iowa Memorial. "One fourth of Grant's troops at Shiloh were from Iowa. With him were the 2nd, 3rd, 6th, 7th, 8th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th and 16th Iowa Infantry Regiments. Many were fresh from camp, had never experienced any form of combat, and some had never so much as even fired their recently issued guns. The carnage they were called into that day left an indelible impression upon them all." (From "Iowa Valor" by Steve Meyer)
