Jonathan mustered out in 1865 in Houston,Tx. ------ The 38th Iowa was nicknamed the Martyr Regiment because over a third of its number died of disease in Louisiana & Mississippi in the latter months of 1863 shortly after the Siege of Vicksburg.Others were discharged disabled and died on the trip home or soon after. There were so few able bodied men left that the 38th Iowa was combined with the 34th Iowa Infantry.
