Missouri State Guard

 



The Missouri State Guard (MSG) was created with the Military Bill passed by the Missouri State Legislature on May 11, 1861. The Military Bill was passed in response to the Camp Jackson Massacre, which took place on May 10, 1861. This bill authorized the governor of Missouri, Claiborne Fox Jackson, to disband the old Missouri State Militia and reform it as the Missouri State Guard (MSG). The purpose of the MSG was to protect the state from federal invasion.
