Battalion Updates & News!

With the recent Kingston Tactical Cancelation, we didn't really have a chance to form the battalion up this spring.  Looking forward we have an opportunity to form as a battalion at Nebraska City in October, its a good central location for our northern companies to come down & also our new MO. Militia boys have tweaked their schedule to make Nebraska City event so real good opportunity here to get Muddy River Battalion together! 

Don't forget! - Muddy River Battalion wants to put an emphasis this year on everyone who wears glasses, "You guys getting either period eyewear or do the contact lens thing". We need to purge our ranks of modern day eyewear, they are an eyesore and also very noticeable by the public & other reenactors. Also, shoes!!! let's be sure to wear proper Brogans or other period correct footwear. Company Commanders & 1st Sergeants this is your responsibility so please be diligent in working with folks on all of this.  We are a team and as a battalion and one or two little things can ruin an otherwise good looking overall battalion impression! Just because we are mainstreamers does not mean that we get a pass on our basic's of authenticity!

In Memory of our Pard!

One of our member units's the 8th Missouri State Militia has recently reorganized itself and will now be known as the 1st Missouri & 8th Missouri, State Militia (Consolidated).  The 1st Missouri State Militia was an Infantry Regiment raised by the state of Missouri out of the St. Louis & did good service. Its good to see someone recreating them in the Reenactment community.  The 8th Missouri State Militia is a Cavalry organization both mounted & dismounted. They are actively Recruiting & looking for recruits & new members in the south-central Missouri region.  1&8MSM
