jrbakerjr Genealogy-Missouri National Guard 1918


   jrbakerjr  Genealogy   
1st and 2nd Missouri Infantry Brigades, National Guard 
   The entire Missouri National Guard was commanded by Harvey C. Clark as Commanding General, with Headquarters at Nevada, Vernon County. He had reorganized the Guard after the Spanish American War.
   These Units were inducted into Federal Service on August 5, 1917. They were merged with Kansas Units to become the 35th Division. General Clark was issued an Honorable Discharge on 26 Dec. 1917 because of disability, and a regular Army officer, Major General William M. Wright took charge of the 35th. 
   The organization consisted of two Brigades of Infantry, two Regiments of Field Artillery, one Signal Corps Battalion, one Battalion of Engineers, one Motor Truck Supply Train, two Field Hospital Companies, two Ambulance Companies and one troop of Cavalry. 
   They landed in France on May 11, 1918 and fought throughout the War. Many of them did not come back. They fought for five days straight making their way through the German lines, inflicting heavy losses on the enemy forces.
   These are Muster Rolls for the Units from some cities in Southwest Missouri, Including Nevada, Lamar, Butler, Carthage and Joplin.
