Hayden Reynolds was my grand uncle by marriage. He enlisted in Co. B of the 5th Iowa Infantry in June 1861.

He witnessed the bombardment of New Madrid, Missouri, and was in the hard-fought battle of Corinth. At Memphis he was accidentally wounded and was laid up in the hospital for some time. On September 7, 1863, he was given an honorable discharge and sent home on account of disability, after a faithful service of twenty-six months.
