Battalion Updates & News!

Just received word that Pilot Knob has been cancelled due to Covid-19 concerns. They hope to reschedule it for last weekend in September of 2021.  


All events have been so far Cancelled (Sigh!) - To date, The big one at Prairie Grove in December as far as we know is still a go! So we do still have some hope at least to get out into the field possibly once this year.


Of course we have almost nothing to report due to this pandemic which has shut everything down for this year it seems.  We are hoping that things will return back to normal toward the end of the year or by next year. Not for sure what the future holds but for now we are the Muddy River Battalion! - Men of Union and we eagerly await our chance to get back out into the field and wear the Blue wool uniform once again.


Change has been made in Battalion Hospital. Western Bluecoats Field Hospital has mustered out and we have a new Battalion Surgeon. Congratulations to Major TJ Howard of the 1st Nebraska. He is now the official Battalion Surgeon and will establish the Battalions Field Hospital at events.


1st & 8th Missouri State Militia company has gone defunct & has been dropped from Battalion Roster.


                                                          Our new Battalion Major is Dave Renli
