Regimental History
44th, 45th, 46th and 47th Regiments and the 48th Battalion
IOWA (100 days)

The Hundred Days Men (The 44th, 45th, 46th and 47th Regiments and the 48th Battalion of Iowa Infantry)

Cols., 44th, Stephen H. Henderson; 45th, Alvah H. Bereman; 46th David B. Henderson; 47th, James P. Sanford; Lieut.-Cols., 44th Henry Egbert; 45th, Samuel A. Moore; 46th, Lorenzo D. Durbin; 47th, John Williams, 48th Oliver H. P. Scott, Majs., 44th, Josiah Hopkins, 45th James B. Hope; 46th, George L. Torbert; 47th, George J. North.

These regiments were mustered into the service mostly in June 1864, and performed willing and loyal duty. The 44th, 45th and 46th were held in Tennessee, garrisoning posts and guarding railways. The 47th was sent to Helena, Ark., where it suffered much from the malaria of that unhealthful locality. The 48th battalion guarded prisoners at Rock island, in the Mississippi river.

Col. Henderson of the 46th reported an engagement between some of his men and the enemy at Collierville, Tenn., about the middle of August. Capt. Wolf and 16 men were sent to rescue, if possible, 2 men of the 6th IL cavalry, captured by the enemy, and in the attempt Wolf and 3 of his men were wounded - the captain and 1 man severely.

At the end of the time for which they had enlisted, these four regiments and the battalion were honorably mustered out, having faithfully and with credit accomplished their mission.

The loss of the 44th was 1 death from battle, and 15 from
disease; of the 45th, 3 from battle, 18 from disease, and 1
wounded; of the 46th, 3 from battle, 23 from disease, and 21 wounded; of the 47th, 1 death from battle, and 46 from
disease, and of the 48th, 4 deaths from disease.
