hnston has held the offices of adjutantgeneral and secretary of state of Kentucky. The preparation of a military history of Missouri was intrusted to Col. John C. Moore, of Kansas City, and his finished work may be confidently submitted to the verdict of the reader. Colonel Moore is well known as an accomplished writer, and for this work he is specially fitted by his Confederate service as a staff officer with Generals Marmaduke and Magruder, and as colonel commanding a regiment with Gen. Jo Shelby. The years that he has given to historical studies bearing on the general Confederate subject, and his complete sympathy with Southern ideas and ideals, have further equipped him for this faithful presentation of Missouri's part in the great conflict. Col. John M. Harrell, of Hot Springs, Ark., has brought to the preparation of the war history of his State memories of four years service in her defense, and the ripened intellectual powers of a life devoted to the profession of law, in
of Jackson's retreat. There he ran across Parsons' quartermaster, who precipitately retired and informed Parsons of the proximity of the Federals. This was the first intimation the governor had that the enemy was in his front. Soon other couriers arrived, saying the Federals were advancing in force. Governor Jackson thereupon assumed command of all the troops in person, and determined to fight the enemy. At daybreak next morning, July 5th, the army moved, with Rains in front and Capt. J. O. Shelby's company in advance. The governor with his staff and Gen. David R. Atchison rode at the head of the column with General Rains. About five miles from Lamar they learned that Sigel had left Carthage and was on his way to give them battle. Hardly had they halted when the glint of the Federal bayonets showed them the enemy on the other side of a creek. The governor formed his men in line of battle with Weightman's brigade on the right, then Bledsoe's battery, and then Slack's infantr
The circumstance of his prompt establishment of headquarters at Pocahontas, in striking distance of Point Pleasant on the Mississippi, the route by which Hardee's command had been transferred, confirmed this opinion in many minds. Halleck's strategy was to prevent this. Gen. John Pope, who had been in command of the enemy's forces in Missouri between the Missouri and Osage rivers, had sent Merrill's Horse through Saline county, where they were bombarded with mortars loaded with mud by Jo Shelby and his men, near Waverly. They stripped farms, impressed stock from women, and captured, February 19th, several companies of Confederate recruits at Blackwater creek, near Knobnoster, under Colonels Robinson, Alexander and McGiffin, of which achievement Generals Pope and Halleck made much boast to Washington. Brig.-Gen. S. R. Curtis was, December 23d, assigned to the command of the Federal forces of the southwestern district of Missouri. On December 2d, martial law had been declared in
their artillery at Lone Jack, August 16th. Col. Jo Shelby reported to Gen. J. S. Marmaduke, regardins charged them, mounted, with a war-whoop, and Shelby's Missouri and Stevens' Texas regiments flanke college, a favorite institution of learning. Shelby had with him Bledsoe's battery of two iron 6-pves, not a man showing the white feather. Colonel Shelby and some of his men, riding rapidly down tC. Monroe, reduced to about 500 effective men; Shelby's brigade, 1,100; MacDonald's brigade, about 7 the enemy's pickets. Early Saturday morning, Shelby encountered the enemy in strong force, and disery to take position in the road, supported by Shelby's brigade, dismounted, ready to resist an advaent to learn the movements at Cane hill, while Shelby and MacDonald moved forward toward Fayettevillry, artillery and cavalry. Marmaduke withdrew Shelby and assigned him a position with the infantry,an, Parsons and McRae, and Colonels Shaver and Shelby, commanding brigades, did their duty nobly. I[19 more...]
