37th Iowa Infantry
A Virtual Cemetery created by: K L Bonnett
Description: The 37th Iowa Infantry has a unique place in history. It was the only regiment of its kind ever recruited in the United States. It mustered near Muscatine, Iowa. It was made up of men over the enlistment age which at that time was 45. Some were as old as 80 years. Its nickname was "The Greybeard Regiment". Its purpose was to guard prisons and arsenals in order to free young men for active combat duty. Even though it was not supposed to be under combat conditions, the regiment did see active service. On Aug 31 1864 the notorious Confederate troops of Forrest launched a surprise attack on the city of Memphis. The 8th Iowa who had provost duty at Memphis required the help of the Greybeards in repulsing this strong attack. In addition the Greybeards were exposed to combat conditions while guarding supply trains going through enemy territory.(Info from "The Union Army" Vol 4 published in 1908.)
