  It should be explained that companies A and E of the 2nd. Kansas Militia, being unmounted, were assigned duty with an infantry regiment at another point on the Missouri border and did not participate at the Battle of Big Blue.  Because it listed no casualties, Company H of Williamsport was probably assigned to remain at Shawneetown to guard the Kansas border. The remaining companies detached some of their men to remain at Topeka to guard the city, with the exception of  D and F, which sent their entire companies to Missouri.
