The map above illustrates the movements of the 15th Iowa Regiment in the Civil War. Our Great Great Uncle James Chapin was part of this unit.
They formed in Warren County, moved to Keokuk, Iowa, and then down the Mississippi River to Pittsburg Landing, Shilo, Corinth, Vicksburg, and then on to Kennesaw Mountain, George where our Uncle was mortally wounded. The Regiment went of to march to the Sea with General Sherman, then to Washington DC to march in review as part of a victory march, and then back to Iowa.
