General Edward Hatch Memorial Bridge on GAR Highway
Highway 6 runs coast-to-coast and is named the Grand Army of the Republic Highway. The Iowa SUVCW has named 11 bridges on the Highway after Iowa CW Generals. There are also 29 GAR Highway markers across the state. This bridge is named after Edward Hatch (1832-1889). He began as a Captain of the 2nd Iowa Cavalry - after several promotions he was a Colonel and commanded the 2nd Iowa Cavalry. The regiment was involved in many engagements including Grierson's Raid through Mississippi. Later he commanded the Cavalry Division of the Army of the Tennessee and received promotions to Brigadier General and Brevet Major General. After the war he joined the Regular Army and commanded the 9th Cavalry made up of "Buffalo Soldiers." This bridge crosses the Raccoon River south of Redfield on Highway 6.
