    December 2-4, 2016

    The 24th Missouri is hosting a campaigner adjunct for the 2016 Prairie Grove Reenactment. This will be conducted in the same quality manner as the Pea Ridge Adjunct March and the 8th Kansas Chickamauga Adjunct.

    The 37th Illinois Infantry was organized at Chicago, Illinois and mustered into Federal service on September 18, 1861, nicknamed the "Fremont Rifles" and "Illinois Greyhounds". The regiment suffered 7 officers and 91 enlisted men who were killed in action or who died of their wounds and 5 officers and 164 enlisted men who died of disease, for a total of 267 fatalities.

    Their engagement at the Borden House was referred to as the fiercest firefight of the war.
