Frederick Dyer's Unit History

Note: This Company was organized in Missouri under authority of General Fremont to be attached to the Twenty-third Illinois Infantry (Irish Brigade) as a Cavalry company. The officers were commissioned by the Governor of Illinois. The Company was not attached to the Irish Brigade, but against the protest of its members, was assigned as Company L to the Third Missouri Cavalry. On account of the difficulties and animosities engendered by this transfer, the Company was subsequently assigned as Company L to the Fifth Iowa Cavalry.
