Eleventh Pennsylvania Cavalry 
Company A

Roster

The subjoined roster shows the names and service records of a company, composed exclusively of Iowa men. A foot-note, appended to the original roster of the company, reads as follows: This company was originally raised for Colonel Josiah Harlan's "Independent Cavalry," which afterwards became the Eleventh Pennsylvania Cavalry Captain Stratton's company (Company A) was an Iowa company, and commissions were issued to its officers, by the authorities of this State, at the request of the general commanding the division in which said company was, at the time of the organization of the regiment. The roster shows that, upon the completion of its organization, the company numbered 83 menu rank and file. Beyond the publication of the roster—and the footnote referred to—but little further reference is made to the company in the Adjutant General's Reports, except the correspondence with the War Department, claiming credit for this company upon Iowa's quota of troops, which credit was subsequently allowed. Therefore, in the absence of the necessary official data from which to prepare a history of the operations of the company, the compiler avails himself of a history of its organization and service, contained in the "Annals of Iowa," published by the Historical Department of the State.
