Inseparably connected with the history of the operations of the Iowa troops who were never mustered into the service of the United States, but who performed service of inestimable value on the southern border of the State, is the record of those companies composed of men whose homes were constantly in danger in the early days of the War of the Rebellion. Living as they did in the counties bordering upon the State of Missouri, they were compelled to organize for self protection. Rumors -- which proved to be well founded -- that armed bodies of citizens of the slave holding State of Missouri were being formed for the
purpose of invading the State of Iowa, kept the inhabitants of those border counties in a constant state of excitement and apprehension. Under the direction
and command of Lieutenant Colonel John Edwards, Aid-de-Camp to Governor Kirkwood, the various companies, which had been hastily organized were concentrated into camps, and were held in readiness to move promptly across the
border, and to resist any attempt of the rebel forces to invade the State of Iowa and plunder the homes of her citizens. The prompt and determined action thus taken undoubtedly saved the people of that part of the State from the horrors of invasion.
