The goal is to field a battalion of CS troops within the overall battle scenario and event activities, and provide a home for those who want a little more to their campaigning experience. Drill, camp, kit, rations, etc will follow the history of the command during the battle.

    Company Commanders/POCs are as follows

    Company A Whit Barr gnh431@mocs.utc.edu

    The 24th Missouri is hosting a campaigner adjunct for the 2016 Prairie Grove Reenactment. This will be conducted in the same quality manner as the Pea Ridge Adjunct March and the 8th Kansas Chickamauga Adjunct.

    The 37th Illinois Infantry was organized at Chicago, Illinois and mustered into Federal service on September 18, 1861, nicknamed the "Fremont Rifles" and "Illinois Greyhounds". The regiment suffered 7 officers and 91 enlisted men who were killed in action or who died of their wounds and 5 officers and 164 enlisted men who died of disease, for a total of 267 fatalities.
