 Muscatine county, Iowa, soldater i inbördeskriget

Created in the turbulent years prior to the American Civil War, Iowa mustered thousands of men to fight in the Union army between 1861 and 1865. The soldiers in this database enlisted from the Muscatine County area, located along the Mississippi River, in the eastern part of the state. Information provided here includes the name of the soldier, unit, enlistment date, and in some cases birth information, death date, burial place, and discharge date. With over 2,300 soldiers listed, this can be a great source of information for researchers of Iowa soldiers in the Civil War.

Military records at the State Archives, a division of the State Historical Society of Iowa, include the State Adjutant General's records of Iowa volunteers in the Mexican War, Civil War, and Spanish-American War. Included among those records are regimental muster rolls, enlistment papers, roster books, reports, pay books, and correspondence. There are indexes for some of these records. Index entries can be copied for a fee. There are no pension records for Iowa volunteer units. Records of the Grand Army of the Republic posts for many Iowa communities are available at the state archives. Casualty files for World War I and II have information, and sometimes photographs, of individual servicemen.
