LIST OF CASUALTIES

"The following exhibit embraces lists of all casualties that have occured in Missouri organizations during their terms of service. Several regiments still remain to be accounted for, some being in service now, and the rolls of others not yet received. It is quite probable that many inaccuracies may exist, as only the muster out rolls, with few exceptions, were consulted in the preparation of the statement, and it is known that they are very frequently defective in not accounting for all men."
