(June 2009) Enlarge Tour Stop # 8 Eight Iowa Vol. Infantry Line

"The very air was hot" The 8th Iowa Volunteer Infantry Regt. was a Union regiment which besieged Confederate Fort McDermott. Throughout the town of Spanish Fort Alabama there are many markers and even street names denote the fighting. Unfortunately on June 5, 2009 the sunset made getting even a good edited photo difficult
