  Fiftieth Anniversary Gathering
Fourth Iowa Veteran Infantry and Dodge's Second Iowa Battery
By Invitation of the Society of the Army of the Tennessee
Council Bluffs, Iowa
October 10 and 11, 1911


The Society of the Army of the Tennessee invited the Iowa Commandery of the Military Order of the Loyal Legion, the Fourth Iowa Veteran Infantry, Dodge's Second Iowa Battery and Dodge's Band to join with them in celebrating the Fiftieth Anniversary of their enlistment at their Forty-first Reunion at Council Bluffs, Iowa, on October 10th and 11th, 1911, it also being the Fiftieth Anniversary of the enlistment of all these organizations in the Civil War. The State of Iowa, the City of Council Bluffs and the Commercial and Elks' Clubs also extended an invitation to all these organizations.

Council Bluffs, Iowa, April 22, 1911.

To Our Comrades of the Fourth Iowa Infantry and Dodge's Battery.

My Dear Comrade : - The Society of the Army of the Tennessee and the Military Order of the Loyal Legion of Iowa hold their next Reunion jointly at Council Bluffs, Iowa, on October 10th and 11th, 1911. The Society of the Army of the Tennessee and the City of Council Bluffs have invited the survivors of the Fourth Iowa Infantry and Dodge's Battery, known as the Second Iowa Battery, which was organized at Council Bluffs in June, 1861, and taken into the field by us, to meet with them in commemorating the Fiftieth Anniversary of our enlistment. We hope every living member of both organizations, with their families, will make an effort to attend. Arrangements have been made to take care of all the Fourth Iowa and Dodge's Battery members who attend, so their only expense will be the railroad fare. We enclose a postal on which please make known whether or not you can attend. Circulars giving full particulars will be sent you later. Also, please send us the name and address of any Comrade you know, of either organization.

Truly,
Grenville M. Dodge,
Late Col. 4th Iowa Infantry.

Joseph R. Reed,
Late Capt. 2d Iowa Battery.
