The 47th Missouri Volunteer Infantry was a Federal volunteer infantry regiment recruited in Missouri. It was organized in August and September 1864, and was attached to the District of St. Louis until December 1864. During this period, elements of the regiment participated in the Battle of Pilot Knob and in delaying maneuvers before St. Louis during Price's Missouri Raid. Other elements guarded important railroad locations and bridgeheads. In December 1864, the regiment was transferred to Nashville, Tennessee. The regiment also performed guard duty at Spring Hill, Columbia, and Pulaski, Tennessee through March 1865. The regiment was mustered out in March 28-30 of that same year.

During the course of its service, the regiment lost 10 men killed and mortally wounded, and 83 men by disease, for a total loss of 93.
