Iowa 14th Infantry Regiment Monument
The Iowa 14th was in the middle of the Hornets Nest - after fighting off repeated Confederate attacks, it was surrounded and forced to surrender later in the afternoon on April 6, 1862. Of 442 present for duty, 8 were killed, 39 wounded, and 226 captured. Of the wounded, 5 died of their wounds and 15 died in prison. Those in prison were exchanged in the following year and the regiment was reorganized at that time. The monument is near the junction of the Eastern Corinth Road and the Sunken Road - also near the Minnesota Monument. It was dedicated November 22, 1906. Photos taken 9/30/08.
