Perry,

The 8th MO was one of 3 Union Zoo-Zoo regiments at Shiloh. The 54th OVI & 11th Indiana were the others. The 8th MO & 11th Indiana were brigaded together under Morgan Smith. The 54th OVI fought in the second brigade of Sherman's Division.

The 76th OVI, also at Shiloh & in Lew Wallace's Division, is considered Zouave by some because of a "furlough" jacket they acquired sometime after Vicksburg.

Great photo!

Respectfully,

54th OVI
