    Edward Hatch was born in Bangor, Maine, on December 22, 1832. He studied at Norwich University, in Vermont; then became a lumber dealer in Iowa; and was, at one point, a merchant seaman. In 1861, he became captain of the 2d Iowa Cavalry. After serving at Island No. 10 and in the 1862 spring campaign to Corinth, Mississippi; he led a brigade in the Battle of Corinth, then in Grierson's Raid. Wounded in 1863, he commanded the cavalry depot in St. Louis, Missouri while he was recovering. Hatch was promoted to brigadier general to rank from April 27, 1864. He served in Memphis, Tennessee; north Mississippi and Middle Tennessee. Assigned to a division in Maj. Gen. James H. Wilson's cavalry, he led troops in the Franklin and Nashville Campaign, ending his combat service there. He left the volunteer service in January of 1866, but stayed in the army. Commissioned colonel of the 9th US Cavalry, he led the Department of the Southwest briefly. His dealings with Native Americans included disputing a reservation treaty with the Ute Indians, and trying unsuccessfully to pursue Mescalero Apache Chief Victorio in his escape from government land. Hatch was brevetted a brigadier and major general in the Regular Army, in recognition for his wartime service. He died on April 11, 1889, at Fort Robinson, Nebraska.

    How is one a lumber dealer in Iowa? Doesn't that require trees?

    If my memory serves me right, Hatch was shot in the chest and many thought he wouldnt make it. It happened at the Battle of Moscow, 4 December, 1863.

    The Battle of Moscow was a diversion to allow Forrest to move men into West Tennessee to meet up with Col. Tyree Bell and gather their conscripts and the new Tennessee regiments. Forrest is mentioned in the last OR, third sentence or end of 2nd Line. It is easy to miss it because his name is hypenated.

    Hatch's Brigade played a critical role in the 2nd Battle of Collierville only 1 month earlier. His brigade came galloping into town and dismounted in time to repulse the Confederate charge. The 5th Mississippi Cavalry lead the charge and Col. J. Z. George made it to the RR embankment where he was taken prisoner.

    (I enjoy posting this because it helps me to refresh some of the details.)


    General Hurlbut's report of the Battle.

    Col. Hatch's wrote a report as commander of 2nd Iowa Cavalry and a report as commander of Third Cavalry Brigade.
    Col. Hatch's report continues to 2 pages.
