Iowa City: State Historical Society of Iowa
A detailed history of one of Iowa's most famous Civil War regiments compiled mostly by one of only eight men who were with the regiment from the time it was formed in 1861 until it was mustered out in 1865. Presented to Pamplin Historical Park by Charles S. Holtz on 4/21/04: In Honor of Major David J. McCoy by his Great and Great-Great Grandson - Charles S. and Roland A. Holtz Mr. Holtz notes that he learned 3 things in reading this book: 1. The devotion of his troops to General Sherman (also exemplified by the fact that my great grand-father named his first son Sherman). 2. The frequency of rations consisting only of hardtack. 3. Union soldiers at times marched without shoes.
