Company A
Andrew Henagle - Private   
'Andrew' only arrived in the USA about a month before he was mustered out at Keokuk. Neither him nor his brother spoke much, if any English. It was important to the family that one should serve their new country. His older brother, my great grandfather, Andreas Harnagel took him to enlist and be mustered. I can only assume that their English was frustrating to the others. So he took Andrews' first name and shattered the last name pretty well, His birth name was Karl Harnagel. He was wounded at Vicksburg and died of his wounds at Memphis where he is buried.

Company B
James Patten Milliken - Major   
Enlisting in Capt. Clark's Company (Company B, 30th Iowa Volunteer Infantry) of Drakesville, Iowa, he was appointed Second Lieutenant August 9, 1862 and mustered into service September 23, 1862.

The 30th Iowa Infantry went to the front in October and was at the attack on Hayne's Bluff in the rear of Vicksburg, December 27 and 28, 1862. Also in the battle of Arkansas Post, January 11, 1863. Lt. Milliken was promoted to Full Major of the 30th Iowa over all the other line officers of the regiment for gallantry in battles, his commission dating April 19, 1863. Although promoted to Major, he was not mustered. This is understandable given his age at that time would have been 60. This was likely an honorary commission to Major in that (1) he was not mustered, (2) he remained assigned to Company B, which was still commanded by a Captain and (3) his gravestone in Raritan Cemetery, Raritan, Illinois depicts his rank as 2LT. The rank of Major was used as the basis of a pension granted to his wife, Priscilla, 2 Sep 1863. This, too, was often the case for widows of deceased officers who had been promoted even though not mustered.

He was with the 30th Iowa on the memorable Vicksburg campaign which began on April 20, 1863. He was in the famous crossing of the Mississippi at Brumsburg and Hardtimes; at the Battles of Port Gibson, Edward's Ferry, Raymond, Clinton, and at the capture of Jackson, the capital of the State of Mississippi. He also took part in the battles of Champion Hills and Black Hills as the rebels were driven back into Vicksburg.

James was mortally wounded at Vicksburg on May 22, 1863 while gallantly leading the 30th Iowa in the great charge. He died of his wounds on May 23, 1863 at Walnut Hills, Mississippi at age 60. He was loved and respected by his command, and his death was lamented by all who knew him.

Company C
William Harvey Barnhill - Private   
William Harvey was my great, great grandfather. He was wounded, on Walnut Hill at the battle of Vicksburg on May 23, 1863. That summer on August 10, 1863 he was taken prisoner at Black River Bridge, Misssisipi while foraging. He was taken to Richmond on August 22 where he was imprisoned. On Febuary 27, 1864 he was transfered to Andersonville, Ga. where he remained until the end of the war. I am currently looking for a G.A.R. or Civil war picture of my great, great grandfather if anyone out there might have one. Thanks.

Julius Dabney Bragg - Private   
I have a reunion picture of the 30th Iowa Infantry that I will be happy to share. JD Bragg enlisted May 8, 1862 at Keokuk, Iowa under the command of Col Abbott. He was mustered out May 1865 in Washington, D.C. He is buried in Haynes Cemetery, Knox Co. IL.
I recently received pension applications for J.D. Bragg. One form submitted by a previous officer in this unit states that J.D. Bragg contracted chronic diarrea and piles and suffered pain from the weight of the ammo boxes he carried. 'He was treated at a hospital that was on a boat that moved from place to place' outside Vicksburg on the Mississippi. After researching Hospital ships, I found the USS Red Rover, the only ship to function as a hospital ship at that place and time. Reading about the ship and seeing actual pictures was very enlightening. Perhaps others have ancestors who also were treated aboard the USS Red Rover. There is both history and pictures on line.
