The companies kept records of activities, including how far they traveled (and by what
method i.e. marched, by train, by steamer). Some Companies kept
more extensive Records of
Events than others. Even though there is very
little mention of specific soldiers, it gives you a pretty good idea of
what they were doing during a specific time period.

company, click on the company letter. NOTE: be sure to also check out the
Record of Events for the Staff and the Regiment. It gives pretty
extensive information about the 27th Iowa in general.
