There may have been men from SE MO engaged in the Missouri State Guard in 1861 to August 1862. So here are a few important battles in Missouri that you may also be interested in. By the way, the paintings are by Andy Thomas. He does paintings for the National Parks...I'd love to see his work in person there at Pea Ridge and apparently coming to Pilot Knob as well.
