Mississippi Marine Brigade

(Iowa men in the United States Navy, either directly enlisted or detailed from the Iowa regiments to which they belonged, for service in "The Mississippi Marine Brigade.") The archives of the office of the Adjutant General of Iowa contain but scant material from which to compile the record of her sons who were either directly or indirectly—connected with the naval branch of the service, during the great War of the Rebellion.   The compiler has, therefore, had recourse to such sources Of information as were obtainable, to show the part taken by Iowa men in the brilliant achievements of the United States Navy.
