20212 Grenville Dodge and Staff  CDV  In July 1861,
Dodge was appointed colonel of the 4th Iowa Infantry
Regiment; he commanded the First Brigade of the
Army of the Southwest at the Battle of Pea Ridge in
March 1862. Dodge was promoted to brigadier general
for his services and assumed command of the District of
Mississippi, where he was tasked with protecting and
building railroads. Promoted to major general in June
1864, Dodge commanded the XVI Corps during
Sherman’s Atlanta campaign. Dodge personally
directed General Thomas Sweeny’s division during the
Battle of Atlanta on July 22, 1864, a move that so
outraged Sweeny that he physically attacked Dodge.
Dodge was wounded during the siege of Atlanta, and
ended the war as commander of the Department of the
Missouri. Back marked Howard & Hall, Corinth,
Miss.  Slightly trim
