23rd Illinois Infantry
I am currently doing research for a disply to coordiante with the Lexington Missouri's Union Monuments dedication this September. The research centers on three officers (information on the war years and post-war years) of Mulligan's Irish Brigade and the regiment's early history through the Battle of Lexington. If anyone has any unpublished (or little-known)information that might be helpful, please let me know. The officers are Company K- Daniel Quirk, Comapny I- James J Fitzgerald, and Company A- Patrick J McDermott.
