We are planning a commemorative event for the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Fredericktown (October 21, 1861).

We are trying to locate descendents of soldiers who fought here. We do not have names of the soldiers, but do know the names of units in the battle on both sides.


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


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 provide us.
