Statistics

Below I have provided some statistics pertaining to the 21st Missouri Infantry
that I have
located in various sources. Although some of the info is contradictory,
they have been transcribed as I found them in the given sources.


LIST OF CASUALTIES - 21st MISSOURI INFANTRY

Transcribed from the "Report of the Adjutant General of Missouri for 1865"
Pages 35, 38-39, and 184-190 of the LDS Microfiche # 6082517


"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."
