Davis County Raid
On October 12, 1864, a band of Confederate guerillas or bushwhackers, dressed in Federal uniforms, crossed into Iowa and engaged in murder and robbery in Davis County. This was the northern most Confederate incursion in Federal territory in the war. It consists of three boulders with plaques from the Sons of Union Veterans and also from the Sons of Confederate Veterans. It is directly south of Bloomfield on Lilac Avenue, 4 miles south of Highway 2. Photos taken 10/13/07.
