Just Shelved: Regiments and Other Interesting People

The Scott County Genealogy Society has added several new items to the Special Collections Center this month. 

We’ve been trying to acquire at least one history of each Iowa Volunteer Regiment, and these three books are welcome additions to our Civil War collections:

  • Campaigns and Battles of the Twelfth Regiment Iowa Veteran Volunteer Infantry  (Major David W. Reed)
  • History of the Nineteenth Regiment Iowa Volunteer Infantry  (J. Irving Dungan)
  • The Twenty-First Regiment of Iowa Volunteer Infantry  (George Crocke)

If you’re searching for ancestors in the Midwest or would like to know how they might have spent their days, these resources might be of assistance:

  • Life in the Middle West  (J.S. Clarke)
  • The Biographical Record of Linn County, Iowa, 1901
  •  Mercer County Missouri Pioneer Tracers, Vol. 1 and 2 by the Mercer County Missouri Genealogy Society

Once again, we thank the Scott County Genealogy Society for enhancing our collections!
