  • Notes 
    • From the Elmwood Cemetery historian (from Bob Hoepner email):
      Our records show that Charles H. Bloom was buried here on 1/30/1863 in the Fowler Section Union Lot. The only note was that he was with 26 Iowa Co. H. He would have been moved to Memphis National Cemetery with the other Union soldiers in 1866. There is a story that the names were written on the coffins in chalk, and a rain washed some off before reburial. I don’t know if that’s true. You might call Memphis National Cemetery and tell them he came from Elmwood.

      Regimental History
      Twenty-sixth Infantry IOWA
      (3 years)

      Twenty-sixth Infantry. Col., Milo Smith; Lieut.-Cols.,
      Samuel G. Magill, Thomas G. Ferreby; Majs., Samuel Clark, John
      Lubbers.

      This regiment was organized at Camp Kirkwood, near Clinton,
      and was mustered in Sept. 30, 1862 It left on Oct. 23 for St.
      Louis, thence moved to Helena, Ark., where it was assigned to
      the 1st brigade, 4th division, Army of the Southwest. After
      the White River expedition it moved to Mississippi to take
      part in the Vicksburg campaign, and was assigned to the 3rd
      brigade, 1st division, 15th army corps, which was under fire
      but not actively engaged at Chickasaw Bayou.

      At Arkansas Post it was in the heaviest of the fight and lost
      120 in killed and wounded. Col. Smith was among the wounded
      and the regiment received encomiums for its valor. It went
      into camp on the peninsula opposite Vicksburg until April 2,
      when it accompanied the expedition to Greenville, being in the
      skirmishes at Deer creek and Black bayou. It returned to the
      vicinity of Vicksburg; accompanied the column in the advance
      upon Jackson, was in a skirmish at Walnut hills; and took part
      in the assault of Vicksburg on May 22, losing nearly one-
      fourth of the number engaged.

      After the fall of Vicksburg, the regiment accompanied the army
      in the movement for the investment of Jackson, Col. Smith
      commanding the brigade, and Lieut.-Col. Ferreby, the regiment.
      In the pursuit of the enemy after the evacuation, it was in
      the skirmish at Brandon, and on the return went into camp at
      the Black River bridge, where it remained until the latter
      part of September.

      It was then in various movements, moved in November to
      Chattanooga, where it was in the battles of Lookout Mountain
      and Missionary Ridge, but was principally engaged at Rossville
      gap. It was also engaged at Ringgold and after a few days'
      rest proceeded to Bridgeport, Ala., and later to Woodville
      where it went into winter quarters until March 9, 1864.

      Detachments of the regiment were in a number of small
      skirmishes during the winter, and patrolled the Tennessee
      River between the mouths of the Flint and Rock rivers
      constantly. The regiment moved to Vienna in March and
      established an outpost; reached Chattanooga May 6, where it
      joined Sherman and commenced the advance on Atlanta.

      It was engaged at Resaca, Dallas, Kennesaw Mountain, the
      various engagements in the vicinity of Atlanta; at Jonesboro
      and Lovejoy's Station, with a loss of about 80 during the
      campaign. It remained at East Point until called on to join
      the pursuit of Hood in October, was engaged at Taylor's Ridge;
      and returned to Atlanta in November.

      It accompanied the army to Savannah but was on a foraging
      expedition the day the advance entered the city. In Jan.
      1865, the regiment marched with the army through the
      Carolinas, being engaged in numerous skirmishes and present at
      the capture of Columbia. Its last engagement was at
      Bentonville in March, after which it marched to Goldsboro,
      Raleigh, and Washington, where it was in the Grand Review, and
      was mustered out in July 1865. Its original strength was 908,
      gain by recruits, 11, total 919.
