lots of german names there
Recent German immigrants to Missouri proved to be an excellent source of soldiers for the Union cause, particularly early. Many had previous military experience serving in Europe. Obviously, actual Missourians also served in these MSM units. The "Dutch" came to be hated in Missouri and it took a couple of generations for these feelings to subside.
