Erected in 1944 by the Crocker Women's Relief Corps, this marker honors the first brigade formed in Iowa during the Civil War. "Crocker's Greyhounds," named for their first commander, General Marcellus M. Crocker, fought at the battles of Shiloh, Luka, Corinth, Big Shanty, Vicksburg, and Atlanta. The unit marched 8,500 miles during the war."
