Monument for Iowa 8th, 12th and 35th Infantry Regiments
The Iowa 8th and 12th were both in the Hornet's Nest at Shiloh and there are monuments there for these two regiments. The Iowa 35th was organized later but served in a number of subsequent actions including the Red River Campaign in Louisiana and the Battle at Nashville. Also shown are camp and assault position markers. After Tour Stop #5, turn left on Graveyard Road to locate the monument. The position markers are nearby. The camp marker for the 12th is down a steep ravine and difficult to locate. Photos taken 10/5/08, 5/24/13 and 5/26/13.
