8th Missouri Infantry      
Company Unknown
samuel evenson - Private   
My father's great uncle, Syver Evenson, aka Samuel Evenson, enlisted in the 8th Reg. Missouri Infantry, from Houston County, Minnesota, with several other young men from the area. Can someone explain the recruitment practice where recently arrived Norwegian immigrants would end up enlisting for a Missouri Regiment? This has always baffled the family. Thanks for your help.
