Fifth Iowa Volunteer Cavalry
Welcome to the site of the Fifth Iowa Volunteer Cavalry. The material has been compiled here in honor of the men who answered their nations call to preserve the Union–and to the wives and children who supported them during their years of sacrifice and danger.
On these pages you will find the complete regimental roster, biographies of individual troopers, period literature related to the regiment, contemporary photographs and images, and much more.
Everyone is welcome to learn from the site, particularly descendants of regimental veterans. If you happen to be a great- or great-great-granddaughter or son of one of the men who served in the Fifth Iowa Cavalry, we hope to hear from you. We would appreciate learning more about your veteran, and would be pleased to set up an individual page for him. We are especially eager to learn about photographs, documents or artifacts which may be in your possession. If you are willing to share them with the rest of the world, the Fifth Iowa Volunteer Cavalry would be honored to host them.
