Sixth Cavalry IOWA (3 YEARS)
Sixth Cavalry. Cols.,David S. Wilson, Samuel M. Pollock; Lieut Cols., Samuel M. Pollock, Edward P. Ten Broeck; Majs., Edward P. Ten Broeck, Thomas H. Shephard, Albert E. House, John Galligan, De Witt C. Cram. This regiment was recruited in different parts of the state, in a wide belt of country extending from the northeastern to the southwestern parts of it.
The regimental rendezvous was near the city of Davenport, where eight of the companies were mustered into the U. S. service on Jan. 31, 1863. Three of the companies were mustered a very few days afterward and the twelfth company on March 5. The regiment at this time had a few more than 1,100 names on its rolls, but they were constantly being increased by additional enlistments, so that when it left the rendezvous for active service not long afterwards it was nearly up to the maximum standard of a cavalry regiment.
The regimen served during its term of enlistment in the war against the Indians, and its record in the field brought no discredit to the fair fame of Iowa soldiers. It had hard marches, far away from the comforts or advantages of civilization; fought barbarous foes, usually in overwhelming numbers, and was always victorious.
The regiment was nearly always more or less divided, garrisoning different posts, scouting and marching in different directions, making a succinct history of its arduous services almost impossible. During its term of service its losses were as follows: deaths from battle, 25; deaths from disease, 66; wounded, 19; discharged, 87
