Correspondence of the State Register
Hospital at Mound City, Feb. 25, 1862
The following in addition to those I have already sent you, are the only
names of Iowa Volunteers wounded at Fort Donelson, which appear on the
Hospital books here: Edward A. Edgar, Company F, 14th Regiment; A. H. Clock,
Company B, 2nd Regiment; F. B. Wilson, Company F, 2nd Regiment; P. Q. Stoner,
Company B, 2nd Regiment; John McCune, Company I, 2nd Regiment; Peter Frisbie,
Company D, 2nd Regiment; H. C. Grenasvalt [possibly John G. Greenawalt, Co.
C], Company C, 2nd Regiment; George G. Hall, Company C, 2nd Regiment.
I look for another battle soon as the Hospital here is being cleared as fast
as Boats can carry off the wounded. Ragan [William] and John Nagle are
getting along finely. Nagle will soon start for home. Only two of Company D
were killed [Theodore Weeks and Nathan Doty]. Bitting [probably William H.,
Co. D], Brown, Looby [John H.], Lyon, Christy [probably William D.], Marsh,
Dick, Dickerson, Noel, Gordiner [possibly John Gordnier, Co. D], Rush, Godfry
[probably George L. Godfrey, Co. D], Ayres, both the Houstons, both Joneses,
Wims, Lynde, Jed Warner, Haskell, Robbins, Burbrage [possibly James W.
Burbridge], and many others of whom I cannot now think, escaped without a
scratch. Most of the wounded were new recruits who joined the Company after
they left the State. There were 2 killed and 22 wounded. The wounded are
all doing well. Edgar Ensign doing well. Major Chipman gone home. Edgar's
father has just arrived from Cairo. Gov. Kirkwood, Dr. Hughes and Mr.
Kellogg are at Paducah. Dr. Udell, Dr. Orr, and the subscriber here. Dr.
Woodruff and Bell are at Cairo. We are doing our best to make the boys
Yours in haste, S. C. B.
