44th Indiana Civil War Regiment
Margaret Hobson reference books

Margaret Hobson, local family historian and 44th Indiana Civil War researcher, has completed three books on the Regiment. The first one, The Iron Men of Indiana's 44th Regiment, Part 1: Biographies and Statistics, is a large hardbound book of 400 pages. It includes short biographies of the 2,012 men who served followed by 20 pages, in color, of charts and graphs about the regiment.

When the call came out in 1861 for volunteers to fight in the Civil War, northeast Indiana was ready. Deeply patriotic and committed to maintaining the Union, they formed the 44th Indiana Regiment and mustered in at Camp Allen in Fort Wayne.

No one can tell the story better than the men who were there and in their own words. The second book is The Voices of the 44th Indiana Regiment, Part 2: Formation and Photos. It's the same size as book 1 and contains over 250 photos of the men and covers their time until the first battle. In addition, it contains biographies of the officers and court martial transcripts of those who strayed.

The third book on the regiment is entitled, The Voices of the 44th Indiana. Part 3: Battles and Provost Duty, and it too is available for purchase.

Any or all of these books may be purchased on the following web page:
