Iowa 6th Infantry Regiment Monument
The Iowa 6th was in several positions on the right of the Union line. Each of the Iowa monuments has a plaque on the reverse side describing the actions of the regiment and its losses. Many are difficult to read and have not been included on other monuments - however, this one is clear and is shown below. There is also a marker near-by indicating a mass grave for members of the Iowa 6th - there is also a mass burial for Confederate Soldiers close to the Iowa monument. The monument was dedicated November 22, 1906. It is in the woods off a foot path - after passing Tour Stop #12 - look for the Ohio 91st monument on the left - take the foot path on the right into the woods to this monument.
