The 7th Iowa and 22nd Illinois comprised Dougherty's Brigade during the ill-advised Battle of Belmont,Missouri Nov 7 1861.
The 7th suffered the most losses of any unit(killed,captured and wounded).
"On November 6, Grant sailed from Cairo, Illinois, to attack the Confederate fortress at Columbus, Kentucky. The next morning, he learned that Confederate troops had crossed the Mississippi River to Belmont, Missouri. He landed his men on the Missouri side and marched to Belmont. Grant's troops overran the Confederate camp and destroyed it. However, the scattered Confederate forces quickly reorganized and were reinforced from Columbus. They then counterattacked, supported by heavy artillery fire from across the river. Grant retreated to his riverboats and took his men to Paducah, Kentucky." Wikipedia
