The 1st Missouri Battalion unit that isn't
based in historical fact, to give us more freedom when it comes to structure and uniforms and general fun.
we have 4 Company all of which are mustering and only 1 is mustering which is MHG A.
Companies are as follows
1st Missouri Home Guard A (Springfield blackhats)
Mustered in 1861 after Wilson's creak to defend Springfield from confederate attacks, this company prides it's self on its drill and dress. They wear uniforms much like the regulars but with hardee hats and a more rugged appearance but still wearing the dark blue uniforms.
1st Missouri Home Guard E (Jefferson City Turners)
Mustered into service in 1862, this company of German immigrants was raised in Jefferson City to support anti partisan movements in the area, they wear a more standard union uniform but also wear grey and butternut uniforms that they hand make though these are less common.
1st Missouri Provisional Army F (Rolla Zouaves)
This Company of Missourians Mustered in, in 1862 in Rolla amid fears of bushwhacker raids along with its sister company in St. Louis which is a batter of artillery. Their uniform is a light blue fez with a red tassel, ornate Zouave jacket of standard union blue with gold or red braid, and bright red or dark blue pantaloons. These Zouaves are hard fighters and have beaten many a bushwhacker force.
1st Missouri Provisional Army K (Artillery/St. Louis Battery)
Soon after mustering in 1862 with its sister company in Rolla, this battery of artillery was shipped to Rolla to defend against Rebels and bushwhackers. They've held their own quite well with the support of F Company. Their uniform is the same as F Co but they deal with the artillery and are commonly seen covered in mud and powder from their guns.
