Greetings!


We are planning a commemorative event for the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Fredericktown, that took place on October 21, 1861.

We are trying to locate descendents of soldiers who fought here. However, we do not have the names of the soldiers, but do have their various units on both sides. Could you please post this email, include it in your newsletter or announce it at your meetings?

USA

1st Indiana Cavalry
11th Missouri
20th Illinois
21st Illiois
8th Wisconsin
33rd Illinois
17th Illinois


CSA

1st Cavalry
MO State Guard
3rd Cavalry
2nd Cavalry
Units under the command of Thompson, Lowe, Waugh, Farmer and Brown

We are planning a "Gathering" to take place on a portion of the actual battlefield on October 21, 2011.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
