Sponsored by the MO Commandery of the
Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States (MOLLUS)

a non-profit S 501(c)(10) organization.

This is an alphabetical listing of officers as taken from the "Annual Report of the Adjutant General of Missouri for the Year Ending December 31, 1865" c1866 which contains the most complete listing of MO officers we have found to date. Additional names will be added as they are transcribed. Many of these officers were original members of MOLLUS and their descendants (direct and collateral) are also eligible for membership. We have additional information on many of these officers and ask you to visit our MOLLUS homepage for more details. We hope this list will help educate others on the history and importance of Missouri in the Civil War.

This has been the best single resource to locate information on anyone who served, Union or Confederate, from any state that we have found to date but may not include everyone who served in the Civil War, but more is being added.

The National Park Service is working on an on-index of all soldiers, Union and Confederate, that are listed on the muster rolls at the National Archives, which will be listed on the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors website, but currently only includes regiments from CT, IA, LA, MA, PA, SC, TN, and the USCT troops.
Copies of the muster rolls for MO can be found in many larger libraries in MO. Broadfoot has published a series of index books based on the NARC muster rolls organized by State which are also in many larger libraries.

The MO State Archives also has data but we have not heard of any plans to create an on-line index as of yet similar to what the IL State Archives has created.
