Eighth Infantry

This regiment was recruited late in the Summer of 1861, immediately after the battle of Bull Run. The regiment was composed of troops enlisted in Clinton, Scott, Washington, Benton, Linn, Marion, Keokuk, Iowa, Mahaska, Monroe and Louisa Counties, and was organized at Davenport, in September. Frederick Steele of the regular army, was appointed Colonel; James L. Geddes, a brave Scotchman of Benton County, was commissioned Lieutenant Colonel, and John C. Ferguson, Major.

Very soon after its organization and equipment, the regiment went to St. Louis; and in about two weeks, it moved to Syracuse, where it was attached to the forces under Gen. Fremont, about to move against Price, in Southwestern Missouri. This march was peculiarly severe upon raw troops, and the command suffered severely from forced marches over bad roads. Almost every camping ground became the burial place of soldiers who died from exhaustion. The Eighth Iowa lost heavily. It returned to Sedalia near the middle of November. From this time the regiment went into quarters, where it remained without particular incident until it was ordered to join Gen. Grant’s forces in Tennessee.

Early in February, 1862, Col. Steele was promoted to be Brigadier General of Volunteers, and Lieut. Col. Geddes became Colonel of the Regiment; Maj. Ferguson was promoted to the Lieutenant Colonelcy, and Captain Joseph Andrews, of Company F, became Major.

On the 12th of March, 1862, the regiment embarked at St. Louis for Pittsburg Landing. Arrived five days afterward, having had three men killed and five wounded while steaming up the Tennessee. At Shiloh, April 6th, the regiment fought heroically. Late in the evening, Col. Geddes surrendered his command to the enemy. He had fought ten consecutive hours, presenting an unbroken front to the enemy, and at last the regiment passed in an organized body into captivity. That part not captured went into the "Union Brigade," and especially distinguished itself at Corinth.

Early in 1863, the regiment was reorganized at St. Louis, and left the first week in April to join the grand army under Grant in the magnificent campaign against Vicksburg. A part of Tuttle’s Division, the regiment took part in the battle of Jackson, and then marched to Vicksburg, where it took part in the assault of the 23rd, in the siege for thirty days, when it moved to the Big Black with the army of observation. Was with Sherman in his movements against Jackson, and took a prominent part in the pursuit of the rebels to Brandon, in which movement Col. Geddes commanded a brigade. Returning to Vicksburg, the regiment had a period of rest. Here, Lieut. Col. Ferguson died of disease. In October, Col. Geddes and the regiment moved to Brownsville, under McPherson.

Early in November, moved to Memphis; thence to LaGrange and Pocahontas, where he remained until ordered to Vicksburg, to join in the Meridian raid. Very shortly after its return to Vicksburg, a large portion of the command having re-enlisted, the regiment went home on veteran furlough, at the expiration of which, it went to Memphis, where it remained as provost guard during the rest of 1864 and the first two months of 1865. On the 21st of August, 1864, Forrest attacked Memphis and was repulsed, Gens. Washburn and Hurlbut saved from capture and the city from sack by Col. Geddes and his brave command. The regiment lost 40 men in this affair. The regiment was very popular in Memphis.

Early in March, 1865, the regiment was ordered to New Orleans; thence to Dauphin Island, whence it soon joined in the last general campaign of the war, that against Mobile. The Eighth distinguished itself in the assault on Spanish Fort, where it captured several hundred prisoners. This was one of the most brilliant movements of the war.
