Brief History

1st Battalion, Missouri Cavalry (1st Indian Brigade) was organized during the spring of 1864. The unit was at Fort Washita, Indian Territory, in May, 1865 and soon disbanded. [1]

Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin

Men often enlisted in a company recruited in the counties where they lived though not always. After many battles, companies might be combined because so many men were killed or wounded. However if you are unsure which company your ancestor was in, try the company recruited in his county first.
