Signed CDV of 2nd Iowa Cavalry BBG Datus E. Coon
4/30/2014 - Firearms and Militaria: Live Salesroom Auction
Coon, Datus Ensing (1831-1893). Coon enlisted in late summer after Congress approved an additional 500,000 troops in July. He was commissioned major in the Iowa 2nd Cav.  He received a promotion to Colonel in May 1864 and his brevet BG in March 1865. Cdv with oval portrait in printed "frame," no photographer's ID. Signed as Major on recto.

The 2nd Iowa Cav. was mustered in on Aug. 25, 1861. With the beginning of the spring it was with Pope at New Madrid and Island No. 10. Two months later, Corinth was under siege, and the 2nd Iowa charged Farmington a few days later. Along with the 2nd Michigan Cav., they cut off the rail lines to Corinth. By the Battle of Corinth, the 2nd Iowa had "been the eye of the army," according to Rosecrans. In the fall, it moved with Grant toward Vicksburg. The following spring and summer saw the unit scouting and skirmishing all over northern Mississippi and middle Tennessee. It was not involved in major battles, other than Tupelo, but was crucial in resisting Hood's invasion of Tennessee. It fought at Nashville as an infantry unit. It veteranized in November 1864, but did not see a lot of activity that last spring and summer.
