Irish Dragoons
in the American Civil War

Regimental History
Irish Dragoons. Capt., Patrick Naughton; First Lieut., Michael Gallagher; Second Lieut., Thomas T. Hayden. This company was organized in Missouri under authority of Gen. Fremont, to be attached to the 23d Ill. infantry 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 Co. L to the 3d Mo. cavalry. On account of the difficulties and animosities engendered by this transfer, the company was subsequently assigned as Co. L to the 5th Ia. cavalry.
