The following veterans of the Civil War settled in Reading, Washington, Eagle and Center Townships in Sioux County, Iowa.  Some stayed for the remainder of their lives. Others moved on to new locations and opportunities.


We have collected photos of only 16 of 57 veterans who settled here. Please feel free to contact the Ireton Area Historical Society if you would like information about any of the Ireton Area Veterans. We would also greatly appreciate receiving additional photos and biographical information to add to our Veteran's project.
