Description

Nice little grouping attributed to Moses K. Knight of the 24th Missouri Volunteer Infantry. Mid July of 1862 would see Moses mustering with with Company G. at Lebanon, Missouri as a private. He would fall ill during the last 2 months of that year and be hospitalized at Patterson, Missouri before returning to the regiment in January. Illness would plague him once more in December where he would spend another month hospitalized at Union City, Tennessee. January of 1864 would see him back with his regiment for the first 5 months of the year. In May they would take part in the Battle of Yellow Bayou. Moses would be wounded in the head when he was struck by a bullet on May 18th. The wounding is reported as being severe, however by July he was back serving with his company after a month long hospital stay. Present for the remainder of 1864, in February of 1865 he would transfer into the 21st Missouri Volunteer Infantry. He would end the war carrying various duties in Mobile, Alabama before being discharged in August, 1865. Included in the grouping are 3 nearly pristine, late war Missouri state buttons taken from the coat of Moses. No pushes or dents in any of these and they retain almost 100% of the gold gilt. Loops are intact on all 3 as well. Marked by Pettibone of Cincinnati. They are accompanied by Moses’s original discharge as well as a photocopy image of Moses along with several other veterans taken at the GAR reunion in Laclede County held in 1923. Full service records are included as well as some genealogical research.
