Fifth Iowa Volunteer Regiments
Mere Inkling hosts the preeminent resources for the history of two American Civil War regiments. Why these regiments? Because they were the two in which my children’s ancestors served.
Corporal Chauncey W. Stroud, the editor’s great-grandfather, served for the duration of the war in the Fifth Iowa Volunteer Cavalry.
Private John S. Moore, my wife’s great-great-grandfather, served throughout the three year enlistment of the Fifth Iowa Volunteer Infantry.
It is to these two veterans, and their steadfast comrades, that these pages are dedicated.
