Welcome to the new site

Hello everybody, welcome to the new web site devoted to the history of the 49th Missouri Volunteer Infantry (US).  While I’m primarily interested in gathering more information about the 49th for inclusion in the book about the unit that I am working on I would also like to share some of what I’ve already learned about the regiment.

This site is new and I haven’t yet had a chance to add a lot of material, but over time I intend to include short biographical sketches of some of the men of the unit that may or not be appropriate for inclusion in the book and invite others to send in stories of their ancestors as well.  Just contact me and we’ll move on from there.
