The Phoenix is a mythical bird that lives for 500 years and then dies and is consumed by flame, raising from the ashes of the fire to live another 500 years and repeat the process. Irregular troops were volunteers that came together when called in times of need to fight along side the regular army. Most Ranger units, Guerrilla, and Militia were considered “Irregulars”. So when a number of us that had been members of clubs that had decided to abandon NCOWS decided to band together to create a new group we decided on the name “Phoenix Irregular Guard” as an appropriate name since we were coming from the “ashes” of old groups and Iowa has sported a number of irregulars over the history of the State.
