Of the militia units at the annual Missouri Volunteer Militia encampment ("Camp Jackson") at Lindell's Grove, north of the city in early May 1861, at least four were nearly entirely Irish. These were the Emmett Guards, commanded by Capt. Philip Coyne; the Washington Blues, by Capt. Joseph Kelly; the Washington Guards, by Capt. Patrick Gorman, and an artillery battery, "Guibor's Battery", under the command of Lt. Henry Guibor. High Irish enlistment also made up a large percentage of the Minute Men Militia, commanded by Capt. Colton Greene and St. Louis Grays, by Capt. Mark Burke and a number of other units.
