This regiment was organized with Iowa City as a place of rendezvous and it was mustered in Oct. 10, 1862. After a week at Davenport it moved to Helena, Ark. where a detachment of 500 accompanied a force in the direction of Oakland, Miss., for the aid of Grant in his effort to take Vicksburg. Smallpox kept the command in camp until Jan., 1863, when the regiment moved in the expedition up the White River as far as Devall's Bluff and returned to find its tents gone! When the men sankdown into the mud to rest as best they could until something could beprovided to give them some shelter from the elements. The regiment spent a week at Yazoo pass in February, clearing the channel of the obstructions placed there, and then returned to Helena. Col. Miller resigned, being succeeded by Lieut.-Col. Connell and the latter by Capt. Wilson as lieutenant-colonel..."
