There was the 5th Missouri that was part of the Missouri State Guard. That was made famous in the song entitled Kelly's Irish Brigade even though it was just a regiment. It was composed of mainly Irish immigrants. The MSG always overinflated the size of their units, where brigade-sized units were called divisions.
