        Regimental History
        Thirty-fifth Infantry IOWA
        (3 years)


        Thirty-fifth Infantry. -- Col., Sylvester G. Hill, Lieut.-
        Cols., James. H. Rothrock, William B. Keeler; Majs., Henry
        O'Connor, William B. Keeler, Abraham John, William Dill.

        This regiment was mustered into the service at Muscatine Sept. 18, 1862, and was sent to Cairo, IL, arriving Nov. 24, and there performed guard duty until in April, 1863, when by orders of Gen. Grant, it set out for the Vicksburg campaign, reporting at Duckport, La., to Brig.-Gen. J. M. Tuttle, commanding the 3rd division of the 15th army corps under Gen. Sherman, and was assigned to the 3rd brigade of this division.

        The regiment participated in the battle of Jackson, having 1 man killed and 1 severely wounded. It crossed the Big Black River on May 18 and arrived that evening in the rear of Vicksburg. There it engaged in the severest duties of the siege, at work in the trenches, sharpshooting and on picket, losing 2 killed and 1 wounded.

        When Vicksburg capitulated, it was ordered by a circuitous
        route to Jackson, where it lost 1 officer wounded and some men captured. In March, 1864 with Gen. A. J. Smith's column, it started to join Gen. Banks Red River expedition. At the taking of Fort De Russy the regiment was in reserve, and at he battle of Pleasant Hill it fought valiantly, losing 64 men, out of seven companies, three being on picket duty in the rear.

        On the retreat of Banks' army the regiment had its share of the fighting constantly taking place. At Mansura, La., it lost 3 wounded, and at Bayou de Glaize, 3 killed, 17 wounded and 1 missing. After returning to Vicksburg, the regiment was in Gen. Smith's force which fought the battle of Lake Chicot to clear the river of Marmaduke's blockade. In a few minutes the regiment lost about 20.

        It then proceeded to Memphis, and with its command was engaged in the Tupelo campaign. With the 12th Ia. it formed a part of the brigade of Col. Woods and participated in the battle of Tupelo. It returned to Memphis and was engaged in the Oxford expedition.

        At the battle of Nashville its brigade fought with conspicuous gallantry and great loss, and the 35th engaged in pursuit of the Confederates, afterward marching to Clifton.

        The regiment was soon transferred to the South, still in Gen. Smith's army, to enter upon the Mobile campaign, and at Spanish Fort it did its full share of duty in the siege. It was mustered out Aug. 10, 1865. Losses: killed in battle or died of wounds, 48, deaths from disease, 188; wounded, 95; discharged, 190,
