On January 16, 1862 the First Missouri Infantry was organized and elected John Q. Burbridge as Colonel. After this regiment organized it was learned that Colonel John S. Bowen had already organized a regiment of Missourians at Memphis, Tennessee, and Bowen's regiment, by seniority, was entitled to be called the First Missouri. Colonel Burbridge's regiment was therefore renamed the Second Missouri Infantry.
