Civil War Veteran
Co A 38th Iowa Infantry
"The Martyr Regiment"
Co F 34th/38th Iowa Consolidated Infantry
------
From military records:
Corbin, Daniel. Age 20. Residence Fayette,Iowa nativity Illinois. Enlisted Aug. 15, 1862. Mustered Sept. 6, 1862. Transferred to Company F 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 third of their number died of disease in Mississippi and Louisiana in the last months of 1863 shortly after the Siege of Vicksburg. Many were discharged for disability and died on the way home or after they arrived home. So few able-bodied men were left that the 38th was consolidated with the 34th Iowa.
