Excerpt from An Illustrated History of the Missouri Engineer and the 25th Infantry Regiments: Together With a Roster of Both Regiments and the Last Known Address of All That Could Be Obtained
The large amount of work involved in this undertaking was not comprehended in the st... art, the roster of three thousand names alone requiring a whole year of research and correspondence to verify and get present addresses. Then the immense amount of correspondence, requiring the inditing of several thousand letters. In the publication of this work there is no prospect of pecuniary gain to any one; the effort has been to please all. The response so far has been fair, and the desire is to see a copy in the hands of every one that served in either the Engineer Regiment of the West, the Twenty-fifth Missouri Infantry, or the First Missouri Engineers. With this end in View, preparations were made for an edition of one thousand copies.
The officers of the Reunion Society of the First Missouri Engineers, Captain B. F. Buzard, President; Lieutenant Joshua Ricketts, vice-president; Lieutenant Paulus Gast, Treasurer, have acted as a publication committee and Colonel J. W. Bissell, Captain B. F. Buzard and some others have rendered financial aid, without which the book could not have been gotten out in good form, but it is confidently believed that it will compare favorably with any of the regimental histories that have appeared.
