A bit about the History of the 3rd Iowa Cavalry: The Third Regiment of Iowa Cavalry was organized under the proclamation of President Lincoln dated July 23, 1861. The preliminary organization of the twelve companies, which were subsequently assigned to the regiment, had been under the charge of Hon. Cyrus Bussey, acting as Aide-de-Camp to Governor Samuel J.
Kirkwood, and, under the direction of that energetic and capable officer, several of these partially organized companies had performed very efficient service in protecting the southern border of the State of Iowa from invasion by rebel forces from the State of Missouri. Upon the completion of their organization, the twelve companies were ordered to rendezvous at Keokuk, Iowa, and arrived at that place on dates ranging from August 3 to September 13, 1861.
They were then re-mustered into the service of the United States by Captain Charles C. Smith and Lieutenant Ira K. Knox, of'the United States Army, between the dates August 30 and September 14, 1861.When the muster was completed, the rolls showed an aggregate strength of 1,096 men, rank and file. They fought at the Battle of Pea Ridge, Siege of Vicksburg, battle of Mine Creek and many more engagements. Google these fellows of the 3rd Iowa Cavalry and you'll find they saw allot of action and were all over the Civil War theater. Check out our photos, add this one to your collection!
