Monument for Iowa 11th, 13th, 15th and 16th Infantry Regiments
This is the famous "Crocker's Iowa Brigade". These regiments had been in the battles at Shiloh and Corinth and later were in the Battle of Atlanta and on the March to the Sea. General Marcellus Crocker was now a division commander and this brigade was commanded by Col. Alexander Chambers at Vicksburg. Note the arrow at the peak of the monument - this is the symbol for General McPherson's 17th Corps. It is located past Tour Stop #4 and the Wisconsin Monument and near the statue of General Crocker.
