For this achievement Bailey was promoted to colonel, brevetted brigadier general, voted the thanks of Congress, and presented with a sword and a purse of $3,000 by the officers of Porter's fleet. He settled in Missouri after the war and was a formidable enemy of the Bushwhackers till he was shot by them on March 21, 1867. He was born at Salem, Ohio, April 28, 1827. Ready for her baptism This powerful gunboat, the Lafayette, though accompanying Admiral Porter on the Red River expedition, was not one of those entrapped at Alexandria. Her heavy draft precluded her being taken above the Falls. Here we see her lying above Vicksburg in the spring of 1863. She and her sister ship, the Choctaw, were sid

By order of Governor Jackson, a Camp had been formed in the western suburbs of the city for drilling the militia. It was named in hohe State Fair Grounds at the western edge of Springfield.

Wisconsin sent ninety thousand of her sons into the struggle, and her infantry and Cavalry won records East and also in the minor, but by no means inglorious, operations west of the Mississippi. In Missouri and Arkansas they protected the inhabitants from outlaw bands and resisted the raids of the Confederates, helping the Union forces on the other side finally to gain possession of the river.
