Eugene Fitch Ware (1841-1911) was a soldier, journalist, politician, historian, lawyer, poet, and served as Commissioner of Pensions in the Theodore Roosevelt administration.

Born in Connecticut in 1841, Ware's family moved in 1844 to Burlington, Iowa, where Eugene was educated in public schools and apprenticed in his father's harness-making trade.

After the firing on Fort Sumter in April 1861, he enlisted in Company E, First Iowa Volunteer Infantry. Subsequently he re-enlisted in Company L, Fourth Iowa Cavalry & was mustered out as captain, Company F, Seventh Iowa Volunteer Cavalry in June 1866.

In his book, "The Lyon Campaign In Missouri In 1861, Being A History Of The First Iowa Infantry," Ware gives the history of the First Iowa Infantry, a three month regiment raised at the call of President Lincoln to put down the rebellion. Missouri a border slave state, which controlled important points on the Mississippi River like St Louis with its large arsenal, was divided in its sympathy between North & South.

Quick action by General Nathaniel Lyon kept its pro-South government from seizing Missouri's important cities, but the new Confederate States government then sent troops under Generals McCullough & Price to assist pro-slavery local Missouri forces. General Lyon mounted the campaign described in Ware's book, which culminated with the battle at Wilson Creek to try & stop the Confederates.

General Lyon was killed in the battle & the Confederate forces held the field, but were so weakened & disorganized that they were unable to follow up the victory. This allowed Union forces to keep most of this important border state under their military control for the entire Civil War.

An important piece of Civil War history seen through the eyes of a first hand eyewitness.
