Levi Leroy Jolls

Levi Jolls, a native of New York state, served in Company C of the 34th Iowa Infantry Regiment, also known as Waterloo's Own Home Company. It served in the Red River campaign in northern Louisiana, including the Battle of Pleasant Hill where the Regiment engaged a unit of Confederate Cavalry from Texas in battle and suffered heavy losses.

Here are some photos from the dedication ceremony.

  • The controls for the slide show are at the bottom of the player. 
  • Images in the slide show are sized to be viewed full size. Use the button next to the Slide Number Box on the right hand side to get to full screen viewing. Use the 'Esc' key to return to normal.
  • Auto play is a little too fast and can't be adjusted (that I've found anyway) so you might want to use the arrows on your keyboard.
