[519] battles of the Army of the Tennessee, in the Vicksburg and Atlanta campaigns, marched with Sherman to the Sea and through the Carolinas, and took part in the final grand review at Washington. The 32d Illinois was attached to this brigade, in November, 1864.

Williamson's Iowa Brigade,” of the Fifteenth Corps, was composed of the 4th, 9th, 25th, 26th, 30th, and 31st Regiments, and was a splendid command. It was organized in December, 1862, with General Thayer in command, who was succeeded soon after the Vicksburg campaign by Colonel James A. Williamson of the 4th Iowa. General Williamson having been mustered out in February, 1865, he was succeeded by Colonel George A. Stone of the 25th, who commanded the brigade on the campaign through the Carolinas.

At Shiloh, an Iowa Brigade composed of the 2d, 7th, 12th, and 14th Regiments fought under command of General Tuttle, then Colonel of the 2d Iowa; and, in the Vicksburg campaign, an Iowa Brigade--8th, 12th, and 35th Regiments--under command of General Matthies, was attached to the Fifteenth Corps.

Three Iowa regiments — the 22d, 24th, and 28th--served in Virginia during the Shenandoah campaign of 1864. They belonged, previously, to the Thirteenth Corps, but were transferred to the Nineteenth just before that Corps embarked at New Orleans for Virginia.
