Welcome to the official site of the 24th Missouri Infantry Volunteers!  We are a Civil War reenacting unit made up of authenticity-minded living historians who are committed to accurately portraying the Union soldier in the Western Theater of the Civil War. 



"Reenacting is more than a hobby. Pastimes such as stamp collecting, building model airplanes, or tending a garden are ends unto themselves, and carry no particular higher connotations. But ours is a greater calling, and involves a responsibility to accurately recreate some of the darkest but most important days of our nation's past. Therefore, we have an obligation to do it right, and to the best of our abilities. We owe this to history, to the memory of those we represent, to our fellow Americans - and to ourselves!
