The 41st Battalion Iowa Volunteer Infantry was an infantry battalion that served in the Union Army during the American Civil War.


The 41st Iowa Infantry was organized as Companies A, B, and C of the 14th Iowa Volunteer Infantry Regimentat Davenport, Iowa and mustered in for three years of Federal service on November 6, 1861. These three companies were immediately detached and sent to Fort Randall, Dakota Territory, arriving there on December 5, 1861. The companies were permanently detached from the 14th Iowa on September 18, 1862, where they remained until May 1863. At one time, the state of Iowa intended to use these companies as the nucleus of a 41st Iowa Regiment, but this plan was abandoned.

The battalion was transferred to the 7th Iowa Volunteer Cavalry Regiment in April 1863.
