Dallmeyer's Battalion (6 months) (Gasconade Co.)

This battalion, also known as the 3rd Regt. MSM 6 months, was organized in September, 1861, with a total of 570 men, mustered in at Camp Matthews, in Gasconade Co. as nine compaines of Infantry. After remaning in the camp for some time it marched to Chamois, MO in the latter part of October 1861, and made that place the base of its operations. Numerous scouts were sent out in search of rebels, but encountered no serious opposition. About December 15, 1861, the command went to Franklin, MO, and there spent the remainder of their term of enlistment in doing guard duty. Although the precise date of the mustering out of this command is not known, it was during the first part of February, 1862.
