------
From military records:
Baker, Horace, Jr. Age 28. Residence Fredericksburgh,IA nativity New York. Enlisted Aug. 14, 1862. Mustered Nov. 4, 1862. Transferred to Company G, Thirty-fourth and Thirty-eighth Consolidated, Jan. 1, 1865. Mustered out Aug. 15, 1865, Houston, Texas.
------
The 38th Iowa was nicknamed the "Martyr Regiment" because more than a 3rd of their number died from disease in the last months of 1863 in Mississippi and Louisiana shortly after the Siege of Vicksburg. Many others were discharged due to disability and died either at home or on their way home. So few able-bodied men were left that it was combined with the 34th Iowa.
