Eleventh Infantry

 

The Eleventh Infantry contained an entire Company (E) from Cedar County and a large portion of Company D, and several of Company K.

They enlisted in October, 1861, and went to St. Louis the November following.  They spent the Winter in the interior of Missouri, doing valuable service in capturing rebels and supplies of horses, food and ammunition.

In March, 1862, the regiment moved to Tennessee, and took an active part in the battle of Shiloh, having forty-five killed, including those who died of wounds afterward, and 180 wounded.  Gen. McClernand, commanding the division, spoke in his official dispatch in the highest terms of the conduct of the regiment in that action.    The Spring and Summer following were spent in the siege of Corinth and occupation of Bolivar.

The Eleventh was in Gen. Ord's column at Iuka, and at the second battle of Corinth, taking part in the pursuit of Price and Van Dorn to Ripley, immediately thereafter.

At the famous assault on Vicksburg, May 22, 1863, the Eleventh with other regiments of the brigade took active part.  On this memorable occasion, Maj. Foster of this regiment, who was in command of the skirmishers, received favorable commendation from superior officers for the many deeds of valor displayed by the brave boys under his command.

From Vicksburg, the regiment went to Mechanicsville, Mississippi, thence t5o Snyder's Bluff, May 31, 1863, where they remained until June 4th.  They were then ordered back to Vicksburg, where they stayed till the 23d of the same month, when they were removed to Fox Plantation, Mississippi, thence to Jackson, thence to Black River Bridge, July 13th.    Two days later, they went to Clinton, Mississippi, thence returned to Black River Bridge and back once more to Vicksburg, July 28th, remaining until the 21st of August, when they moved to Monroe, Louisiana, thence to Bayou Macon and back again to Vicksburg, where they remained most of the time until February 18, 1864, when they went to Meridian, Mississippi, thence to Canton, March 1, and back to Vicksburg, where they remained until March 13th.

From Vicksburg the regiment came to Davenport, on veteran furlough, and remained from March 22, 1864, to April 25th, when, once more shouldering their guns, they started for the scene of strife, and going by the way of Cairo, Illinois, Paducah, Kentucky, Clifton, Tennessee, and Huntsville, Alabama, arriving at Kenesaw Mountain, Georgia, June 16, 1864, from there moved to East Point, Georgia, September 9, 1864, and were mustered out of service at Louisville, Kentucky, July 15, 1865, and disbanded at Davenport.
